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
- pool tables
- household appliances
- fluids (things that can’t freeze)
- fine art
- stamp and/or coin collections
- archival quality documents and professional journals and books
