Understanding Indoor Storage Units & Temperature Control

When searching for a space to store your precious possessions, you’ll encounter two main options at Self Storage of Beach Park: temperature-controlled storage units and regular indoor storage units. But what exactly sets them apart? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Let’s take a deeper look at the key distinctions to help you make the right choice.

Temperature-Controlled Units: What Are They?

Temperature-controlled units are storage spaces that actively regulate the interior temperature and humidity levels. Advanced systems keep the environment between 55°F and 85°F consistently throughout the year. This regulated climate protects against extreme heat, cold, and moisture.

The Benefits of Temperature Control

The main perk of temperature-controlled units is the added protection for your belongings. Fluctuating temperatures and humidity can damage many items over time. Consistent climate control prevents issues like:

  • Warping or cracking of wood furniture and musical instruments
  • Mold, mildew, and musty odors in clothing, books, and fabrics
  • Electronics and film becoming brittle and damaged
  • Wine and artwork losing quality due to improper storage

For all items that are vulnerable to environmental conditions, temperature-controlled units provide reliable protection and peace of mind.

What About Indoor Units Without Temperature Control?

Regular indoor storage units simply provide an enclosed space within a storage facility building. While shielded from outdoor elements like rain and snow, they do not regulate temperature or humidity. The interior conditions may fluctuate along with the external weather.

Indoor units without temperature control tend to be more budget-friendly. They suffice for short-term storage or items that are not highly sensitive. However, the lack of temperature and humidity regulation does pose risks for certain belongings over longer periods of time.

Choosing the Right Unit for You

When deciding between unit types, consider the items you’re storing, the duration, your local climate, and your budget. Temperature-controlled units provide superior control but cost more. Evaluate your specific needs to make the smartest choice. Protect your precious belongings by choosing adequate storage conditions.
