Summer is heating up! If you’re in the market for a self storage rental this summer, consider getting a climate controlled unit. An air conditioned storage unit can not only protect your belongings from the heat, but it will also make you feel more comfortable when you access your storage space.
1. Keep Cool While Moving In with Climate Controlled Storage
Moving your belongings into a storage unit be a challenge no matter what season it is. The task can be especially difficult during the peak of the summer heat. The feeling of cool air as you open your unit door can keep you motivated when you have a lot of belongings or heavy furniture and appliances to place into the storage space. Even if you need to access your unit between noon and 3pm, the hottest time of the day, you’ll feel at ease as you retrieve your belongings.
Most climate controlled self storage units usually have an internal temperature of 55 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Another factor to consider when choosing a self storage unit is just how warm it can get inside a standard storage rental that isn’t air conditioned. Just like a car sitting in the hot sun, the temperature inside the conventional storage unit can be much hotter than what the true temperature is outside. This is definitely something to keep in mind when deciding what kind of storage unit is best for your needs.
2. Protect Your Items From Heat
One of the main reasons that business and household tenants love climate controlled storage is because of its unmatched protective qualities. Many types of commonly stored items, including furniture, appliances, electronics, photos, art and more, need the kind of stable environment that air conditioned storage offers. Several of the items listed above are big ticket items that need to be preserved in order for them to last. When you enter your storage unit to pick up your belongings, you want to be sure that the items are in just as good of condition as they would be if they were stored in your own home.
3. Ward Off Humidity
Proper insulation and climate control can protect your valuables from moisture, mildew and mold. Artwork, musical instruments, clothing, documents, computers, TV’s and other objects can be deteriorated by humidity. Rust and corrosion can occur on metal filing cabinets, bicycles, tools and equipment if these items are exposed to moisture while in storage. Objects that use glue as part of their construction, such as certain musical instruments and sports equipment, can break down as the glue erodes away. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to what type of storage rental you need for your items.
