"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

Types of Climate Controlled Storage

Renting a storage unit with climate control in New Haven is a great way to ensure your items remain safe in any kind of weather. But if you don't necessarily need a climate-controlled unit, there are alternatives which may be more cost-effective. Exterior drive-up units, for instance, can be a great option for those who don't need the protection from humidity and temperature fluctuations that climate control provides. Interior units inside a building are also a solid option for those looking for a safe, secure and affordable way to store their items.

Choosing a Storage Unit

Climate-controlled storage units are an excellent way to store items that require protection from the elements and temperature fluctuations. When choosing a storage unit with climate control in New Haven, Connecticut or the surrounding area, consider the following:

  • The facility's HVAC system and how it maintains temperature and humidity levels
  • The technology within the unit, such as insulation, vapor barriers, and dehumidifiers
  • The size of the unit and its proximity to windows or other sources of natural light
  • The facility’s security measures and pest control services
  • The reputation of the storage unit provider in the New Haven area

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in New Haven, Connecticut you should consider the climate and weather of the city at different times of year. The average high temperature in peak summer months is around 80 degrees F, while the average low temperature in peak winter months is around 21 degrees F.

A unit with climate control is beneficial when storing items that may be sensitive to temperatures and humidity levels, such as family photos, electronics, antiques, and upholstered furniture. Knowing that the interior temperature remains consistent and the humidity is controlled helps preserve these items.

A non-climate-controlled unit can be a great option for more temperature-resistant items such as books, blankets, and wooden furniture. Consider packing your items in airtight plastic bins to help protect them from moisture and dust. You may also want to consider renting a unit with a higher ceiling and more space to help keep air circulating and reduce the chance of condensation.

In conclusion, when choosing the right storage unit for your items, consider the climate and weather of the city and the items you are storing. Renting a unit with climate control is a great option for temperature-sensitive items, while renting a non-climate-controlled unit can be a cost-effective option for more temperature-resistant items.
