Phoenix is a fantastic place to enjoy fun in the sun. Still, the sweltering weather presents challenges for people and businesses that need to store sensitive items. When you need to keep things in pristine condition despite the heat, turn to Black Tie Moving for climate-controlled storage.
What Is Climate-Controlled Storage?
In your search for long-term or temporary storage, you’ve likely come across multiple solutions that are either climate-controlled or temperature-controlled. While the terms sound similar, they are not the same thing. Temperature control is more limited than climate control and only regulates the air temperature in the unit.
On the other hand, climate-controlled units typically operate with a dehumidifier and air conditioning system that allows for humidity control as well.
What Items Need Climate Control?
When looking at storage with climate control, you may underestimate just how many items need a climate-controlled unit to remain preserved in their current condition. Residential and commercial storage items that benefit from climate-controlled storage in Phoenix include:
Many people who opt for residential storage without climate control end up placing their items in storage only to open the door after some time to find damaged items. Furniture may crack, warp, or even start to rot. Fine leather may discolor. Electronics may be rendered useless. Books, photos, records, and more may degrade.
Deciding if You Need Climate Control
In a place like Phoenix, it’s obvious that the number one reason to get climate-controlled storage units is to protect your possessions from excessive heat and bone-dry conditions. However, here are two other reasons to rent a climate-controlled unit.
- Long-term storage: The longer your items sit in a storage unit, the more damage they accumulate due to temperature and dryness. If you’re going to store items for more than a month or two, climate control is necessary to keep them as they were when storage began.
- Storing irreplaceable items: You wouldn’t be paying for storage if you didn’t care about your things, but collectibles, antiques, and other valuables are another story. Don’t take a chance on your irreplaceable items getting lost to climate fluctuations.
