Providing Protections for All of Your Belongings
The Climate-Control Decision
Many areas around the country have higher than average humidity. When you live in these areas, you might consider climate-controlled storage options for the security of your belongings. Storing valuables that are sensitive to humidity or temperature, you may choose climate-controlled storage to be on the safe side. Prestige Storage offers climate-controlled storage that circulates the air in the unit so that the air isn’t stale or humid.
At times, we need to consider what will happen if rain, snow, or temperature fluctuations will do to our prized possessions. Particularly when storing them for an extended period of time, choosing a climate-controlled unit will be appropriate.
The temperature in a climate-controlled storage unit can vary from 55 degrees F (winter) to 85 degrees F (summer). Humidity is often a factor to consider. With air-conditioning, there is a dehumidifying affect. If you items are overly sensitive to humidity, check with our storage experts about the specific settings. Keep in mind that most climate-controlled units are part of the entire climate-controlled system and not individually controlled. In addition, climate-controlled storage units protect your items from mold and mildew.
