About Climate Control

What does Climate Control mean? Do I need it?

Our climate-controlled buildings maintain a range from 50-85°F (winter season at 55-60°F and summer season at 80-85°F) with relative humidity below 60 percent. Mold can grow in a temperature range above 40°F and below 100°F if the RH% is above 60 for 48-72 straight hours. So while a temperature-controlled facility can protect from heat and freezing, they cannot maintain that important RH level below 60 percent throughout the year! Our climate controlled storage units are professionally designed for this use (unlike a converted grocery store or warehouse retrofit).

Customers typically need a climate-controlled storage room if storing:

  • antique or fine furniture
  • oriental rugs
  • musical instruments
  • pianos
  • pool tables
  • household appliances
  • electronics
  • furs
  • fluids (things that can’t freeze)
  • photos
  • paintings
  • fine art
  • books
  • stamp and/or coin collections
  • comics
  • archival quality documents and professional journals and books

“Just like EVERYONE else, I got great service from Dave at Applewood. My trailer was stored outside, at the Dairy Drive location. I have stored my trailer many places in 3 states, but I never felt it was really secure until I stored it at Applewood. Great security, easy 24/7 access, a clean, PAVED (!) parking pad, easy payment options, and easy to follow instructions made this a really good experience. The fact that my rental is also slightly supporting our “Officers In Blue” was also a plus. If I need to store anything else while I’m in the Madison area, Dave WILL get a call from me. Thank You Applewood.”
