How Climate Controlled Storage Fights Humidity

  • A hygrometer shows a humidity reading of 50 percent.
Climate controlled storage units offer a lot more than just extra space. They also offer peace of mind that your possessions will be protected from bugs, dust, heat, cold, and the biggest culprit of all—humidity.

Humidity can wreak havoc on your possessions. Imagine rusted electronics, warped antiques, mildewed papers, and more.

With climate controlled storage, it’s not just the temperature that’s being moderated; it’s also the humidity.

What Is Climate Controlled Storage?

Climate controlled storage units are becoming increasingly common. They’re heated during the winter and air-conditioned in the summer. They also remove dust from the air, keeping your possessions clean. Unlike units that are merely temperature controlled, climate-controlled units keep humidity levels at an ideal range so you won’t find brittle papers, rusted electronics, or mildewed photographs.

What About Attics, Basements, and Garages?

For practical reasons, these are the places most of us end up using as storage space. If you get really lucky, these can work. But if you live in a place that has temperature or humidity swings (just about everywhere), you’ll be risking finding warped wood, mildewed documents, ruined electronics, and moldy boxes. You’ll also find damage from water leaks, bugs, and rodents.
