Depending on the items you are looking to store will determine the type of storage unit that best fits your needs. Our Suffolk County storage facility in Hauppauge provides both conventional and climate-controlled storage options.

To determine the best unit for your needs start with a list of items you need to store.

Conventional Storage

If you are storing items not sensitive to temperature fluctuations and humidity levels then a conventional storage unit might be a fine choice.

Typically items that would not warrant climate controlled storage options would be:

  • Sports equipment
  • Gardening equipment
  • Outdoor furniture
  • Seasonal outdoor decorations

When Should You Use a Climate Controlled Storage Unit?

Delicate or high-value items such as artwork, electronics, wooden furniture, upholstered furniture, business documents, and inventory will be better protected in a climate-controlled storage unit where extreme temperature fluctuations and humidity can be controlled

Despite the fact it may cost slightly more you will be thankful for the decision in the long run for preserving the condition of your valuables especially for extended periods of time in these climate-controlled storage units.

Climate Controlled Storage and Temperature Controlled Storage

Our climate controlled storage facility in Suffolk County, NY provides security and protection for your all your storage needs.

Extremely high temperatures can cause certain materials to dry out, while extremes to the other end cause frost damage from freezing. Too much moisture in the environment can cause damage as well as too little moisture in the air.

With the use of HVAC systems (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) temperature is regulated in a climate controlled storage unit. These units are insulated and maintain a consistent temperature range.

Humidity control utilizes dehumidifiers to manage humidity levels which are used in conjunction with temperature control to keep a steady level of humidity in the unit.

The general level of humidity that keeps most materials in good condition year-round regardless of outside weather is 55% humidity.

Climate Controlled Storage Units Have Better Air Quality

Air quality is often overlooked when searching for storage units. A non-climate controlled  storage unit is not sealed the same way an indoor climate controlled unit is. When storing sensitive items such as electronics, documents or artwork, clean air is a factor you want to consider as a high priority. Indoor self-storage facilities with climate control are well sealed. The constant circulation air ensures a consistent flow of clean air. Sensitive items will benefit from clean air. This will also prevent you from needing to occasionally open your unit to get some fresh air inside.

Greater Protection From Dust & Debris

The atmosphere in climate-controlled storage units tends to be freer from dust and debris in the air. Sealed and insulated floors, roofs and walls in the well-sealed climate-controlled storage units are less susceptible to tracked in dirt and water. This also makes it less likely to have rodents or pests lingering. This provides greater protection for sensitive materials and possessions whether you store them short or long term.

Protection from Extreme Temperatures With Climate Controlled Storage Units

You want to protect your delicate items from extreme temperature changes. Especially if you live in a region that experiences drastic temperatures. Sensitive items such as wood furniture, musical instruments as well as fine art and business records can suffer warping, cracking and other damage due to extreme temperature fluctuations.

Our climate controlled storage units are kept at consistent temperatures above freezing and below 80 or 90 degrees.

When storing the following items, especially for extended periods you should choose a climate controlled storage unit:

 Electronics
 Photographs
 Artwork
 Antiques
 Vinyl records
 Wooden furniture

 Musical instruments
 Upholstered furniture
 Books, comics and other paper items
 Mattresses
 Important documents
 Furs
