Do You Need Climate Controlled Storage?

Regulator climate control. Vector image.Climate controlled storage units are extremely handy when it comes to storing your furniture, antiques, musical instruments, or any fine art. Climate controlled storage units keep items in a constant set temperature. If you are going to be placing valuable items in storage, you will want to consider a climate controlled unit.

  • Furniture – Wooden and leather furniture are sensitive to extreme climates and will want to be stored in climate controlled units. Wooden furniture (bed frames, tables, chairs, dressers, and more ) can be damaged when it is exposed to too much moisture.
  • Appliances – Your household appliances including washers, dryers, microwaves, refrigerator all need climate control storage. Climate control protects electronic parts from cracking and rusting,
  • Musical Instruments –  Musical instruments are very delicate and need to be handled carefully especially if storing for a long period of time. Humidity can dry out wood instruments such as guitars and pianos. Climate control will reduce moisture and help eliminate dust which will preserve your musical instruments.
  • Photography & Artwork – When storing photos climate control is a must. If temperatures get too hot and humid and photos are stacked on top of one another, the prints can start to blend together.

Properly storing your items during the warm summer months will help protect your items from the heat. Climate control is offered at select A-1 Self Storage locations. Check with your facility to confirm.
