Is Climate Control Really Necessary?

The answer to this question is: it depends on your situation. These few questions will help you decide what the best option for you and your stuff will be.

  • Will it be in storage for a long time?
  • Can it warp or crack?
  • Is it sensitive to extreme heat or cold?
  • Will interaction with moisture cause damage?
  • Is it rare, sentimental, or valuable?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions then we would definitely suggest renting a climate-controlled unit. The most important of these questions is the first — how long will it be in storage. If the answer to this question is a month or two — and not in the dead of winter or the heat of summer— then you might be alright storing some of these items in a non-climate-controlled storage unit. However, if you plan on storing your belongings long-term, or through the rough winter or summer months, it’s definitely a good idea to rent a climate controlled storage unit because with heating and air conditioning, these storage units remain at a moderate temperature all year long.
