If you are planning to store your goods, it is important to know the difference between temperature-controlled and climate-controlled storage. The safety of your goods is important, so we encourage you to learn more about which storage solution is right for you.

Temperature-Controlled Storage

Temperature control is the process in which a facility maintains a range of several degrees with cooling and heating equipment. Typically, temperature-controlled facilities maintain temperatures between 55 and 80 degrees, depending on the season. For example, in 90-degree weather, a temperature-controlled warehouse may maintain a steady 80 degrees. Temperature-controlled storage is a great solution for long-term storage, to protect your items from radical temperature extremes with the changing seasons.

Climate-Controlled Storage

Climate-controlled storage maintains both humidity and temperature at an exact level that is determined the best condition for storing your goods. This environment fluctuates very little in humidity and temperature; which, can deter mold or mildew growth. This type of facility is important when storing fragile goods such as high-end artwork and/or antiques.

When you’re choosing what to put in storage, it’s best to ask the facility what type of storage is offered, and what is best suited for your goods. It is also important to inquire about the facilities’ cleanliness, security, and maintenance.
