Temperature vs. Climate Control

It’s essential to differentiate between temperature-controlled and climate-controlled storage units, each serving distinct purposes. While temperature-controlled units focus on maintaining a consistent temperature, climate-controlled units manage both temperature and humidity levels. Talk to the experts at our Forest, VA, storage office to find the perfect solution for your situation.


Why Choose Temperature-Controlled Storage for Your Items?

These units are especially beneficial for those seeking to store items susceptible to temperature and humidity fluctuations, shielding valuables from potential harm and deterioration.

1. Shielding from Extreme Temperatures

Virginia’s weather fluctuations pose challenges for storage, especially as the seasons change. Temperature-controlled storage units act as a shield, sustaining a consistent temperature that thwarts heat-induced warping, melting, or cracking, as well as damage from freezing temperatures.

2. Safeguarding Delicate Items

Certain materials are vulnerable to damage from temperature fluctuations. Temperature-controlled storage units at Lock and Roll Storage are perfect for storing musical instruments, antiques, electronics, and other delicate items, ensuring they remain in impeccable condition.

3. Lower Humidity Levels

While not as extensive as climate-controlled units, temperature-controlled storage provides a degree of humidity control. By maintaining a steady temperature, these units prevent moisture buildup, safeguarding against mold, mildew, and other humidity-related damage.

4. Improved Air Quality

The sophisticated HVAC systems in temperature-controlled units do more than just regulate temperature. They continuously circulate and filter the air, creating a cleaner environment free from dust and pollutants. This is particularly advantageous for documents, fabrics, and electronics.

5. Comfortable Access Conditions

When accessing your storage unit at Lock and Roll Storage, enjoy comfortable conditions, regardless of external weather. This ensures a pleasant process, minimizing the risk of heat-related stress or discomfort.

6. Long-Term Savings

While temperature-controlled units may entail a slightly higher rental cost, the protection they provide translates to significant long-term savings. Preventing damage to your valuables helps you avoid the costs of repair or replacement, ensuring your items stay in prime condition for years.

By choosing a temperature-controlled storage unit at Lock and Roll Self Storage, you’re making an investment in top-tier protection for your belongings.

What Items Benefit Most from Temperature-Controlled Storage?

Deciding whether a temperature-controlled storage unit is the right fit involves understanding which items are most susceptible to damage from temperature fluctuations.

Artwork and Collectibles: Paintings, sculptures, and collectibles are often irreplaceable. Temperature-controlled units protect these items from warping and deterioration, preserving their significant value.

Books and Paper Goods: Books and paper can warp, yellow, and degrade in extreme temperatures.

Clothing and Fabric: Expensive or delicate clothing and fabrics can suffer from extreme temperatures. A stable environment prevents mold, mildew, and degradation of the material.

Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals: Requiring stable temperatures, these items benefit from temperature-controlled units, making indoor storage suitable for businesses storing inventory or individuals with sizable collections.

Electronics and Appliances: Computers, TVs, and electronic devices are sensitive to extreme temperatures, risking irreparable damage to internal components.

Leather Goods: Leather can crack and discolor when exposed to temperature fluctuations. Storing leather items in a temperature-controlled unit ensures they stay supple and maintain their appearance.

Photographs and Documents: Extreme temperatures can cause photographs to become brittle and documents to fade.

Vinyl Records and Musical Instruments: Prevent warping and damage, preserving both the sound quality and the value of these items.

Wooden Furniture: From antique dressers to modern wooden tables, pieces made from wood can warp, crack, or rot when exposed to temperature fluctuations. A consistent temperature is crucial for their preservation.
