Why Climate Controlled?

Posted Jan. 2022
Why do you need climate-controlled storage? Choosing the right facility for your self-storage is an important decision. When deciding on a unit to rent, you should consider the location, price, security, and what size unit you need. The ultimate factor becomes, what do you need to store? While there are advantages to both conventional and climate-controlled units, more often than not, you want your items to be safe, secure, and protected from the elements.
What is climate-controlled storage? Climate control in the self-storage industry is typically defined as temperature and humidity-controlled units. Temperature-controlled storage units are designed to protect your items from extreme heat or cold. Humidity-controlled storage units are designed to prevent your items from getting wet or damp and can prevent mold or mildew.
This is beneficial in climates with ever-changing temperatures. Sixty5 Storage can help protect your important items during extreme temperatures that can be common in Southwest Missouri.
