The Benefits of Temperature-Controlled Storage

Posted on: June 21, 2016

At SMARTBOX, we take your needs and the safety of your possessions very, very seriously. When you need storage, you need the surety that your belongings are safe, secure, and free from damages that can occur in weather extremes. This is why we provide temperature-controlled storage! For your storage needs, we provide only the very best, and our climate control solutions are simply a part of that effort.

What is Temperature-Controlled Storage?

Pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Controlled storage allows for heating, cooling, and dehumidification as the situation demands. This means your items are guaranteed safe, no matter the season or occasion.

What are the Benefits of Temperature-Controlled Storage?

Beyond the more obvious benefits, there are a number of other advantages to choosing temperature-controlled storage. You might actually be surprised by the sheer number of upsides!

  • Protection against temperature extremes. Depending on what you’re storing, items may be susceptible to damage from extreme heat or cold. Items like pictures, microfilm, electronics, computer components, and antiques are all notoriously finicky about temperatures. In a controlled environment, your belongings are never at risk!
  • Humidity control. Humidity is present regardless of temperature. And when it gets into a standard storage unit, it’s there to stay. This rapid accumulation of moisture can lead to a wide variety of unpleasant problems with your items, and can even result in costly property loss! Temperature controlled systems not only protect from temperatures, they naturally dehumidify as well, leaving your belongings as dry and safe as can be.
  • Added security. Any storage unit that can be called a temperature-controlled unit must qualify as a finished building. This provides you with more security on top of the normal benefits, as finished buildings are well-sealed against leaks, odd weather, and insects that can damage your items.
  • Reduced risk of mold growth. Mold is a common result of excessive moisture. And once an infestation has taken root, it will rapidly spread throughout the unit. This can create a gross, unpleasant storage unit. And given even a little bit of time (sometimes less than a day!) the mold will spread to the items in your storage unit, often causing total property loss. Since our temperature-controlled storage units keep humidity levels under control, mold is much less likely to ever be a problem!
