Why Climate Controlled Storage Units are the Best Choice

Deciding to rent a self-storage unit is a big decision for you and your stuff. After all, this unit is about to become home for your belongings. No matter if you’re renting for six months or plan to rent for several years, there are some unit features you just can’t overlook - like whether or not you’ll need a climate-controlled storage unit.

Even though you might not think climate control is an essential part of your storage experience, it can significantly impact the protection and integrity of your belongings. If you’re curious whether or not climate-controlled storage is right for you, know you’re not alone. At Bluebird, we want our customers to select the best storage unit for their needs. That’s why we’re reviewing the benefits of climate-controlled storage and how our Edmonton self-storage facility is the perfect home away from home for your belongings.

 

What does Climate-Controlled Storage mean?

Before we dive into why climate-controlled storage matters, we wanted to discuss what it is and how it impacts your overall storage experience.

At Bluebird, climate-controlled storage units can provide temperature and humidity regulation, protecting your belongings from extreme cold, heat, and humidity. These units are kept at a certain temperature throughout the day and adjust depending on outdoor temperature changes.

Essentially, climate-controlled storage means your items won’t experience any extreme temperatures that could harm their appearance or integrity. However, not all storage facilities define climate-controlled storage the same. It’s important to distinguish what features you’ll receive if you choose a climate-controlled unit.

At our self-storage facility in Edmonton, Alberta, our climate-controlled units protect against all three extreme temperature changes. The goal of these units is to provide peace of mind year-round, so you never worry about the condition of your possessions.

 

Why Choose Climate-Controlled Storage? 

Now that we’ve established what it means, it’s time to consider the most crucial question - why choose a climate-controlled storage unit? The answer depends entirely on your storage situation.

If you’re renting a 5’ x 10’ storage unit to keep your lawn equipment, you probably don’t need to worry about having climate control. However, it’s not always that simple. Depending on what you plan to store, an unregulated storage unit can become too hot or cold, which could damage your items. Climate-controlled storage prevents this damage from occurring, so you feel better about the safety of your possessions.

The main benefits of climate-controlled storage vary between storage situations, but the main benefits are as follows.

 

Protects Your Most Valuable Possessions 

The greatest advantage of climate-controlled storage units is that they provide the ultimate form of protection. At home, when you store valuables, they’re likely stored in your unfinished attic or basement. Even though these areas provide plenty of space for storing your stuff, they don’t have the proper temperature regulation for certain precious items - and the same applies to unregulated storage units.

Certain items need to be stored in a regulated environment, so they maintain their structural integrity. If you plan on storing any of the following items, a climate-controlled storage unit is the best choice for you.

  • Antiques
  • Furniture
  • Bedding and Linens
  • Decor
  • Vinyl Records
  • Mattresses
  • Documents
  • Electronics
  • Books
  • Photo Albums
  • Clothing
  • Musical Instruments
  • Couches
  • Appliances
  • Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals

When it comes to your valuables, there’s no point in taking a risk. A climate-controlled storage unit can protect these items against extreme temperatures, so they continue to stay in perfect condition.

 

Preserves Your Belongings 

Besides protecting your belongings from extreme temperatures, they also preserve them and prevent other outside factors from harming your stuff! The constant air flow means less dust and allergens on your items, and minimal to no dirt enters your unit.

 

Total Peace of Mind

The main benefit of climate-controlled storage is that it provides the peace of mind you need for your belongings. You’ll never worry about the integrity of your stuff because our units are designed to take care of it! Plus, our friendly, in-person team is there to help you if you have any questions regarding the safety of your stuff.
