Why Climate-Controlled Storage?

Climate Controlled Self Storage for Wine

"I would like to thank you for providing a safe (and dry) unit and appreciate the professional way in which you conduct your business."
Mark W., Clinton, CT

Severe hot or cold weather can damage items stored in storage units. Important documentation for your home or business, computer equipment and electronics, wood or leather furniture, photographs, books, clothing, artwork and other valuable possessions can be destroyed if not properly protected. If you live or work in a geographic area with these weather conditions, Tuxis Self Storage climate-controlled storage units provide the ideal solution for storing your personal or business-related items.

Tuxis Self Storage climate-control storage units maintain a steady temperature of between 5080° using central air conditioning and heat. Maintaining a steady environment prevents:

  • Warping, cracking and splitting
  • Rust, yellowing and corrosion
  • Mold, mildew and bacteria overgrowth
  • Infestation of wasps, mice, termites and other vermin

Tuxis Self Storage climate-controlled storage units are typically part of a finished Tuxis Self Storage building with indirect heating and cooling (compared to air conditioners or heaters within individual units). The enclosed environment of these Tuxis Self Storage buildings can also provide increased protection from dust, dirt and flooding.

How to Choose a Climate-Controlled Space

Follow these three steps to determine whether climate control is an appropriate investment for your needs:

Step 1: Consider Your Geographic Area

As a general rule, the temperature in climate-controlled storage units should not fall below freezing in the winter, or rise above 90°F (32°C) in the summer. If the geographic area where you live or work exceeds 90 degrees in the summer but does not freeze in the winter, air-conditioning would be a viable option to consider. Same with only extreme cold temperatures — a heated storage unit would be an option. If your area experiences both extreme hot and cold temperatures, take a closer look at Tuxis Self Storage climate-controlled storage units for the best benefit.

Step 2: Consider What You Plan to Store

The following is a list of items commonly stored in Tuxis Self Storage climate-controlled storage units:

Home Goods Equipment
  • Leather or wood furniture
  • Antiques & heirlooms
  • Clothing
  • Furs
  • Craft supplies
  • Plastics
  • Food stuffs
  • Paintings & other fine art
  • Photographs
  • Musical Instruments
  • Media such as DVDS, CDS, vinyl records, cassettes & 8-track tapes
  • Cameras
  • Televisions & stereos
  • Computers & computer parts
  • Video equipment
  • Audio equipment
  • Tools & machines
  • Restaurant equipment
  • Construction supplies
  • Business Items
  • Products & supplies
  • Software, videos, DVDs & CDs
  • Pharmaceutical samples & medical supplies
  • Archival documents, tax files, & other paperwork
  • Seasonal inventory

If you plan to frequently access your stored items as you add, remove or organize them, keep in mind your comfort when working within your Tuxis Self Storage climate-controlled storage unit. A pleasant temperature can make the job much easier.

Step 3: Consider the Value of What You Plan to Store

Tuxis Self Storage climate-control storage units generally cost more than Tuxis Self Storage standard units. To determine whether the cost is justified, it’s important to assess the value of what you plan to store. If you are packing away electronics, products or equipment that are covered by insurance, and replacing them would mean only an inconvenience, you may decide that a standard storage space is sufficient. If, however, you are storing items of sentimental value or historical documents for your business, the additional cost may be insignificant, especially if it gives you peace of mind. Whether your items would be costly and inconvenient to replace, or irreplaceable, if you are going to pay to store them it is wise to store them well.
