4 Items to Put in Climate Controlled Storage, Anchorage, Alaska

If you’re trying to clear out clutter and make room in your home, you may need to place some items in storage. Depending on what you’re looking to keep off-site, it may be necessary to rent a heated storage unit with climate control. Here are a few belongings that’ll benefit from staying in temperature regulated rooms.

4 Items to Store in Climate Controlled Units

1. Documents

Many families have precious heirloom photos and old documents they want to keep safe. Instead of letting them take up space at home, place them in climate controlled storage where they’ll be safe from humidity and temperature changes that could cause rot and moisture damage.

2. Instruments

3. Furniture

Wood buckles and bends when it’s exposed to changing humidity and temperatures. Keep it in heated storage to avoid these effects. Similarly, leather can crack as the material expands and shrinks. Store it away from the dynamic weather of an unregulated unit by renting heated storage instead.

4. Electronics

If you’re planning on placing a television, DVD player, or game system in storage, make sure it’s heated. The internal components in many electronics can be damaged when exposed to moisture, so it’s crucial to control the temperature around them.
