Climate Control

The climate of Earth is a climate of change. It can be 65 degrees and sunny in January, but then later that same day the temperature will dip into the single digits with freezing rain leaving a layer of ice an inch thick in its wake. Climate-controlled self storage units can be recommended for a variety of reasons. Climate-controlled storage is a type of self storage that is designed to prevent mold, mildew and moisture problems. High or low temperatures and high humidity are the leading causes of damage to goods in storage. Climate control typically means keeping the temperature below 80 degrees in the summer and above 50 degrees in the winter, with humidity below 65 percent to stop mold or mildew.
