Types of Climate Controlled Storage

Renting a storage unit with climate control in Calera can be a great way to ensure that your items are safe from the elements. However, it's worth considering a storage unit without climate control as well, since this is often more affordable. Exterior drive-up units and interior units inside a building are types of storage that aren't climate-controlled and are therefore worth considering. Ultimately, the decision that you make should be based on what best fits your needs, budget, and level of comfort.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When choosing a storage unit with climate control, it is important to consider the city, Calera, and the particular needs of the items being stored. Here are some key considerations:

  • The climate of the area - this will determine how well the climate control works, as well as how much it costs to operate the unit
  • The size of the unit - the size of the unit should be just large enough to fit the items being stored
  • The temperature level - the temperature should be set to the ideal level for the items being stored in the unit
  • The humidity level - the humidity level should be set to the ideal level for the items being stored in the unit
  • The type of climate control - the type of climate control should match the needs of the items being stored

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Calera, Alabama, one should consider the climate and weather of the area. In the peak summer months, temperatures can reach average highs of 95 degrees Fahrenheit and in the peak winter months, average lows of 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Climate controlled storage provides a consistent temperature throughout the year, which is beneficial when storing heat and humidity-sensitive items like wood furniture, electronics, books, and photographs. However, non-climate-controlled storage can be sufficient when storing items that are less sensitive to the elements. By protecting items with proper packaging and ventilation, non-climate-controlled storage can still provide adequate protection for items like clothing, bedding, and holiday decorations. Ultimately, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage can provide valuable and affordable options for storing goods in the city at different times of year.
