Do I Need a Storage Unit with Climate Control?

Whether you've rented numerous storage units over the years or are new to self storage, you may be wondering if you need a climate controlled unit.

These tips from our team will help you decide which type of storage is right for you.

Storage Tips

About Climate-Controlled Storage Units

Conventional storage units are designed to protect most everyday items. From patio furniture and holiday decorations to office supplies and sports gear, many of your belongings can be stored safely in units without climate control.

Collectibles, works of art, musical instruments, and valuable items or those made from fragile materials benefit most from climate-controlled self storage. This type of storage offers an extra layer of protection from humidity and fluctuating or extreme temperatures like those experienced in Saddle Brook and the surrounding area. They maintain a milder temperature range of anywhere from 50 to 65 degrees to 85 degrees.

Climate Control Considerations

People need storage units for a myriad of reasons. Whether as a temporary solution during a cross-town move or to help keep clutter at bay year-round, self storage frees up valuable home or office space for Saddle Brook residents and business owners.

If you only need to safeguard your belongings off-site for a short amount of time, the weather plays a major role. Storing everyday items for a month or two during milder weather probably doesn’t call for climate control. Of course, the type of item you’ll be storing is an important factor. You may want to consider climate control for these items:

  • Photos
  • Artwork
  • Antiques
  • Electronics
  • Collectibles
  • Wine collections
  • Important documents
  • Musical instruments
  • Makeup, candles, and medication

Climate-controlled storage units are also ideal for storing belongings made from the following materials:

  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Wicker
  • Leather
