If you have limited space in your home or apartment, you may have considered placing some of your items into long-term storage just to free up some space. While long-term storage can be a wonderful solution, especially for seasonal items, it’s important to consider what you plan to put in your storage unit and whether or not it’s worth it to invest in a climate-controlled self-storage unit. In parts one and two of our previous posts, we discussed some items that require climate-controlled storage, and in today’s post, we will list some of the benefits of storing your items in a climate-controlled unit.

Protection From Extreme Temperatures
As all Colorado residents know, the climate in our state can be extremely unpredictable, especially during the extreme winter and summer months. With that in mind, what most people fail to realize is that the extreme fluctuation of temperatures can actually affect the items you have in a standard self-storage unit due to the fact that the temperature isn’t regulated. Climate-controlled units, on the other hand, are kept at a constant temperature, meaning weather outside won’t affect your items inside your unit. This is especially beneficial if you plan on store sensitive items such as furniture, artwork, or even books.
Limit Exposure to Dust
Many self-storage units are outside, meaning every time you open or close the door, you risk letting in dust and debris that could settle on your belongings and cause problems over time, especially for electronic items. However, climate-controlled units are typically located inside a facility, making it easier to control the temperature. For this reason, climate-controlled units are often cleaner than outside storage units. Because the unit is inside a building, you don’t have to worry about dust or debris getting inside your unit every time you visit it. As a result, your belongings will look and function exactly as you left them.
Prevent Costly Damage
Another reason to choose an indoor, climate-controlled storage unit is because you reduce the risk of costly damage. It’s not uncommon for people to store valuable belongings in their self-storage unit, but extreme temperatures, dirt and debris, and even the potential of flooding could put your belongings at risk. Should anything happen to your valuable belongings, it could be costly to repair them. If you’re worried about your items getting ruined, it may be in your best interest to invest in a climate-controlled unit.
