Climate Considerations

In East Hartford, Connecticut, there is a wide range of climate and weather throughout the year. The city experiences hot summers with an average high temperature of around 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and cold winters with an average low temperature of around 17 degrees Fahrenheit. When considering self storage in East Hartford, you should consider both climate-controlled storage and non-climate-controlled storage. Climate-controlled storage is beneficial for items that are sensitive to temperature and humidity, such as photos, electronics, medications, and wooden furniture. Non-climate-controlled storage is beneficial for items that are not as temperature and humidity sensitive, such as clothing, linens, and small appliances that are in good working condition.

When storing items in non-climate-controlled storage, it is important to take extra precautions to protect your belongings. For example, if you are storing sensitive items like books or documents, it is important to store them in airtight boxes to protect them from the elements. Additionally, it is important to make sure that all items are wrapped in breathable fabric and stored off the ground to prevent moisture damage.

Overall, non-climate-controlled storage can be a cost-effective storage solution. With the right care and precautions, you can store your items safely in East Hartford's non-climate-controlled storage units.
