I would like to address to my knowledge and experience, when climate controlled self-storage is necessary. I have managed L.A. Self-Storage in Rochester, NY since 1998. We do not offer climate controlled storage here. We have visited the possibility of offering it but have come to the conclusion that it was not necessary for the vast majority of our customers.
Who does NEED climate controlled storage? If you are storing liquid medicine, wine or antique furniture, climate controlled storage is recommended. At L.A. Self-Storage we offer pallets here for you to store your items on. Keeping furniture, computers or other electronics off of a cold concrete floor is advisable. A wood pallet will conduct cold to a stored item slower than concrete will so cloth furniture won’t rip from extreme cold if stored on a pallet verses being stored on concrete.
