Why Use Climate-Controlled Storage Units?, Dothan, Alabama

Those who need a place to keep belongings outside of a house or garage should consider renting a storage unit. Before moving your property into a rental, however, you’ll have to decide between climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled options. Here is some information on the former to help you understand the benefits of using a climate-controlled facility for your specialized items.

How Do Climate-Control Settings Protect Your Belongings in Storage?

Temperature Fluctuations

storage unit Dothan ALIf you want to store items like furniture, paperwork, or instruments, place them in a unit that features temperature control. Extreme temperature changes can warp or crack wood and paper. Air conditioning also helps protect items in the unit against moisture damage; when air circulates through an air conditioning unit, it loses some of its moisture content. This combination of temperature and humidity control will protect your belongings from mold, which typically thrives in warm, moist environments.

Dust Accumulation

In a climate-controlled storage facility, the aforementioned air circulation also keeps dust from accumulating on your belongings. Dust can be particularly damaging to electronics and delicate equipment that needs to be taken apart to be cleaned thoroughly. When you visit your storage unit to reorganize or retrieve items, you’ll also appreciate better air quality when it’s climate controlled. If you need to sort through your belongings, you also won’t stir up dust, which can trigger allergies and respiratory problems like asthma.


If you’re looking for a storage unit that is secure, clean, and easily accessible, contact American Self Storage.
