What is Climate Controlled Storage?
In Climate Controlled Storage, both the temperature and the humidity are controlled. These storage units are typically inside an air-conditioned building where the air is filtered continuously, and the temperature is maintained between 55 and 80 degrees. Big Jim Self Storage offers Climate Controlled Storage Units in all locations. These units range in size from 25 SF (5 x 5) to 300 SF (10 x 30).
What should you store in Climate Controlled Storage Units?
In general, all personal items kept inside a residence should be stored in Climate Controlled Units. By contrast, it is okay to store items that are typically stored in the garage or an outdoor shed in non-climate controlled units. More specifically, the following items should be stored in Climate Controlled Units:
- Leather Items
- Legal Documents
- Musical Instruments
- Personal Records
- Photos & Albums
Ultimately, it's the customers' decision where to store their belongings. Climate Controlled Storage protects valuables against the effects of high temperatures, temperature fluctuation, and high humidity. These effects include mold and other damage caused by increased evaporation and condensation.
