Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Lakeland, Florida, it's important to consider the climate and weather. Lakeland has an average high temperature of 87 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer and an average low of 46 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter. Taking these temperatures into account, a non-climate-controlled storage unit may be suitable for items that do not need to be kept at a constant temperature.

For items that need to be kept at a consistent temperature, a climate-controlled unit is the way to go. An added benefit of choosing a climate-controlled unit is that temperature fluctuations are minimal, thus protecting delicate items from extreme temperatures.

Sensitive items such as books or documents should be protected by being placed in airtight containers or boxes for extra security. Additionally, items such as paper products and photographs should also be stored in airtight containers to protect them from the moisture in the air.

Non-climate-controlled storage has its benefits and is cost-effective. It is suitable for storing items that are durable and can stand a little fluctuation in temperature. Ultimately, the decision of whether to choose a climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage unit depends on what items you plan to store and for how long.
