Climate Considerations

San Diego, California is known for its relatively mild climate and moderate temperatures year-round. In general, the temperature in the city typically ranges from the high 50s to the high 70s, making it a great place to consider storing your items in either a climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage unit. When deciding between the two, it is important to consider what type of items you are storing. If you are storing temperature sensitive items such as electronics, artwork, or photographs, then climate-controlled storage is the better option. On the other hand, non-climate-controlled storage is ideal for storing personal items such as clothes, furniture, or books that can tolerate some seasonal temperature fluctuations. In the summer months, temperatures can rise to the high 70s, while winter temperatures can dip to the low 50s. Taking proper precautions, such as wrapping items in plastic, can help protect your items from potential humidity and dust exposure. Ultimately, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage are viable options for storing your belongings in San Diego.
