A lot of storage facilities these days now offer climate controlled units to clients who wish added protection for their valuables. Climate controlled storage units are so insulated that they are immune to the cold of winter and the blistering heat of summer. These storage units can be set at a specific temperature and will be able to maintain it more or less constantly. In addition to being very well insulated they can also be set to maintain a desired level of humidity. The climate controlled units are obviously more expensive than regular storage units but it is a good bargain being that you get extra protection and fine tuning capabilities.
One key feature of climate controlled storage units is they are extremely well made and are virtually impenetrable. And as already stated above are very well insulated. Being well insulated, your stored items will be protected from any outside changes in humidity and weather. Regular units just get the job done by protecting your items from just the basic elements like snow, rain, and wind. The climate controlled units protect your stored items from dew buildup, Moisture buildup leading to dampness and frost that occur as the elements roll in the outside.
An added benefit of opting for climate controlled storage units is the protection from insects and wildlife. Most storage units are just built to keep your items safe from the elements and that’s it. Some have the feature that is impenetrable by rodents but none will certainly be safe from insects. It is a common thing that occurs in regular storage units that when the owner decides to open it up after some time they will be greeted with bugs and rodents along with their flea infested nests.
The insulation helps in keeping those insects and rodents outside the unit where they should be. Some storage facilities have the added bonus of having their own pest control options to further keep pests away from your valuables.
If you have decided to finally rent a climate controlled storage unit don’t forget to let the staff set the temperature inside the unit to your liking. If you don’t provide them with your desired temperature they will set to standard, which varies from facility to facility depending. This is usually not a problem for regular items but if you wish to store temperature sensitive items make sure to tell them the specific temperature.Additionally ensure that your agreement advises not enable them to mess with your set temperature at whatever point they feel it is proper or helpful for them.
