Climate Controlled Vs Non Climate Infographic | How Do You Know if You Need Climate Controlled Storage | Amazing Spaces Storage Centers

As soon as you begin your self-storage research journey, you are immediately confronted with the challenge: should you have a climate controlled space or a non-climate controlled space? How do you know what is right for you?

When do you need climate controlled storageClimate controlled storage is needed anytime you plan to store items that are primary located indoors, regardless of the season

The question you need to ask yourself to identify whether you need a climate or non-climate space is actually quite simple: are the items you plan to store located inside a home or office building? If the items are primarily located indoors, then we recommend a climate controlled space for your needs. This is especially true for items such as furniture, appliances, electronics, important papers, and photographs.

If you plan to store items that are primarily located outdoors, such as a car, then a climate controlled space may not be necessary

If the items you plan to store are primarily located outdoors, in a shed, or even your garage, then you probably don’t need climate controlling and a non-climate space will be just fine for your needs.

Often, our clients assume because the temperature outdoors is cool, a climate controlled space isn’t necessary. This is false, as climate controlled storage does more than just control the temperature, it also controls the humidity level. Having a fully climatized space will ensure your items remain protected against the notorious Houston humidity. Climate controlled spaces are also located indoors, which help protect against the elements and ensure your items are kept clean and in optimal condition.

Both climate controlled and non climate storage spaces at Amazing Spaces feature floor to ceiling walls, insulated spaces, and painted and sealed floors (which help to cut down on moisture and dust).

If you do plan to store a variety of items in a non-climate space, make sure to loosely wrap the items with packing materials or moving blankets. This will help cut down on dust that may find it’s way to your non-climate space. By wrapping it loosely, you help protect against moisture from building up in-between the wrapping. To further protect the items being stored, you may wrap items in your climate controlled space, but because the humidity is controlled, you don’t need to worry about moisture building up!

    Great guidelines provided by Amazing Spaces. We’ve had climate control at storage places other than Amazing Spaces and I must say, not all climate control storage is created equal.

    Amazing Spaces is far and beyond better than any climate control storage place I’ve ever had. They are number 1 in my opinion, but go see for yourself and meet their great staff while you see what a great place it really is. Not just great – Amazing.

    I like how you mentioned that climate-controlled storage also controls the humidity level. My uncle mentioned to me that he and his friend are looking for a reliable climate-controlled self-storage unit for their business products and asked if I have any idea what is the best option to do. Thanks to this informative article and I’ll be sure to tell him that they can consult a well-known climate-controlled storage unit services as they can answer all their inquiries.

    I think climate control is essential. Whether it be storage or a truck. Things need to be kept at safe temperatures.
