The Benefits of Climate-Controlled Self Storage for Fall
The leaves are changing, the air smells crisp, and Starbucks has just announced the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. It’s fall! From chunky sweaters and beanies to crock pots and space heaters, there are plenty of ways to prepare for the season. While getting into the autumn spirit, you’re probably getting ready to do a closet cleanout or switch up the décor in your space. But where will you store your important items during the offseason? What if you need to access them on short notice? What about the valuable items you want to keep in pristine condition?
Luckily, climate-controlled storage is the perfect solution to your storage questions and concerns. In this blog, we’ll explain exactly how climate control is your knight in shining armor, safeguarding your items so you can pick up your fourth “Leaves” candle of the week from Bath & Body Works with the peace of mind you deserve.
What Is Climate-Controlled Storage?
Climate-controlled storage is a type of storage that maintains a stable internal environment to protect items against a variety of external conditions. By keeping a steady temperature in the unit, climate control can prevent damage and prolong the life span of sensitive items. Climate-controlled storage is extremely beneficial for those located in areas of the country with extreme fluctuations in temperature. Examples of these places include:
- Montana boasts the coldest temperature ever recorded at minus 70 degrees and the most severe fluctuation, from minus 54 to 49° F, all within 24 hours.
- California’s southern portion experiences higher temperatures, and the northern portion enjoys much colder temperatures. The weather in California is very hard to predict.
- Oregon holds a record high of 117° F and a record low of minus 54. Its climate varies greatly depending on the location.
- Nevada is proud of its record high of 117° F and a record low of 50 below zero, making it another unpredictable state.
With drastic weather fluctuations comes the need for climate-controlled storage. Climate control acts as a safeguard against uncontrollable conditions for greater care of your more precious belongings.
Items To Store in a Climate-Controlled Storage Unit
There are a variety of items that should be stored in climate-controlled storage units. These items fall under the “sensitive” category, so they are made out of material that is more sensitive to climate and temperature than others. These items include but are not limited to:
- Wooden or leather furniture
- Household appliances
- Clothing (especially vintage clothing for all the thrifters out there!)
- Documents and paper products
- Printed pictures
- Cameras and electronics
- Vinyl records
- Decorative Candles
Reasons To Use Climate-Controlled Storage This Fall
Now that we’ve covered what climate-controlled storage is, you might be wondering why you need it. While the fall season brings many wonderful things, it also brings a change in temperature. And while we are prepared for these colder times with our sweaters and hot drinks, items in standard storage units don’t have a way of protecting themselves.
Climate-controlled storage provides our items with the extra protection they deserve. Let’s talk about some of the most important reasons you should rent a climate-controlled storage unit for your belongings this fall.
We all know how unpredictable fall weather can be, with variations in temperature and precipitation. Since climate-controlled storage maintains a stable internal environment, it allows you to store your belongings without the worry of the negative effects of temperature fluctuations. Climate control is a great option for limiting the risk of potential damage to your most important items.
Preserving Seasonal Items
As you store summer items like outdoor equipment, beach gear, and summer clothing, climate control helps keep them in pristine condition during the fall months until you need them again.
Storing Delicate Clothing
Forget tees and tanks. Grab the cardigans and crew necks! With fall around the corner, you might be transitioning to heavier clothing. Delicate fabrics and clothing items can benefit from climate-controlled storage to prevent damage.
Convenience During Fall Activities
With a variety of activities like holidays, travel, and other events, the fall season is filled with plenty of fun to be had. Having a climate-controlled storage unit allows you to access your belongings conveniently whenever you need them.
Maybe you need a place to keep the Christmas tree until Thanksgiving is over or all the extra holiday decorations you don’t have room for. Store your essentials until you need them, and climate-controlled storage will protect them while they wait for you to pick them up.
Peace of Mind
Overall, climate-controlled storage provides you with peace of mind, knowing your belongings are being protected and preserved, no matter what weather conditions prevail outside. This way, you can sip on all the Pumpkin Spice Lattes you want in peace!
