Published on 11/15/2020

There is one thing that attracts those searching for storage to non-climate control unit .... PRICE. However, it can be extremely costly if you choose a non-climate control unit and store the the wrong stuff.

Self storage is usually broken into two categories; non-climate controlled storage and climate controlled storage. Generally, most items in a non-climate controlled storage unit will be protected. But non-climate controlled storage units are not heated or cooled, which means your belongings will be subjected to fluctuating outdoor temperatures, depending upon the nature of the building. Over time, the moisture and temperature fluctuation results in mold and mildew growth and other negative results for many of your stored items. If you have belongings that can withstand temperature and moisture fluctuations, then non-climate controlled storage is a fine option. Additionally, rodents/bugs and theft are other important factors to consider.

Items that can be stored in a non-climate controlled environment include:
  • Tools
  • Lawn equipment including tractors, mowers, weed eaters, and blowers (ABSOLUTELY NO GAS)
  • Dishes and kitchenware
  • Washer & Dryers (with no electronics)
  • Plastic outdoor furniture
  • Metal furniture
Being cheap when it comes to the securing your belongings can have disastrous results. Consider the location, security and cost of a storage unit before choosing the best one for you. In addition, it would be wise to pay for additional tenant protection coverage if you chose to use non-climate control units.
