What are the differences between climate-controlled and air-conditioned storage units?
You might come across storage facilities that offer either ‘climate-controlled’ or ‘air-conditioned’ storage units for both personal and business use.
While some may view both as the same, they actually are not. Customers will have to pick between the two types, depending on their needs. It is imperative to choose the right type of storage for your belongings, as certain items will need to be stored under a specific criteria to ensure their condition do not drop.
What is an air-conditioned storage unit?
Air-conditioned storage units are sometimes referred to as temperature-controlled storage. As the name suggests, air-conditioned storage units are typically placed in an area where the temperature is maintained around 23 to 25 degrees.
What is a climate-controlled storage unit?
As with air-conditioned storage units, climate-controlled storage temperatures are also maintained around 23-25 degrees. However, they are also equipped with a dehumidifier, enabling the control of the humidity levels that keep the area dry.
One of the biggest benefits of storing in climate-controlled storage is that items like wood furniture, artwork, photographs, electronics, and antiques are protected against the risk of rotting and other moisture-related damages.
