Not all storage units are designed for keeping sensitive items out of weather elements to protect them for long-term durability. A climate controlled storage unit, like those offered at Affordable Storage, are the best choice storage units when your valuable belongings need an extra layer of protection.


What is Climate Controlled Storage?

While drive-up storage units give easy drive-up access, they are located outside and are more prone to changes in weather. Climate Controlled storage units are conveniently available in-doors. They are kept at a comfortable temperature to make sure your things stay out of extreme weather conditions like dust, rain and snow.Not sure what belongs in a climate controlled unit? We’ve put together a list to help you determine whether indoors or outdoors are best for your storage needs!

Controlled Storage Furniture

Furniture items, especially furniture that is made of leather and wooden materials, need to be in a temperature-regulated storage unit. It’s best to protect these pieces from fluctuating weather conditions to prevent damage like warping and fading.


Your home appliances like refrigerators, washers, dryers and dishwashers store best when they are in a climate-controlled storage facility. Mold and mildew can quickly build up, and they are expensive to replace!


Computers, televisions, phones, tablets and any other electronic device contain internal components that are very susceptible to damage and ruin if left in fluctuating weather conditions. Climate controlled units have regulated temperatures, and that’s what you want when storing any electronic item.

Artwork and Photographs

Heat and humidity can quickly ruin artwork, pictures and other paper memorabilia so it’s best to keep these items stored in a climate controlled storage unit. Climate controlled is best to prevent fading, sticking and other irreversible damage to these keepsake items.
