Who Could Benefit From A Climate Controlled Space?

Individuals or Households Looking To Move or Renovate Their Homes

Planning on moving or renovating your home? Investing in storage facilities that offer storage units that have climate control can be extremely beneficial, especially if you have more sensitive items that wouldn’t thrive in an environment that has constant changes in climate, humidity, or temperature. For example, storing any wooden furniture, fine art, electronics, etc.


If you have rare antiques that are prone to damage you want to protect them as best as you possibly can, and self-storage options that have climate control can keep them safe from fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels. This can be applied to rare books or even rare furniture pieces.

Small Businesses

Do you run a small business with a tonne of excess inventory? If the products you sell are sensitive to temperature and humidity and don’t want to run into the risk of damaging all of your products while in storage then you want to consider climate-controlled storage options.

What Items Should Be Stored In Climate-Controlled Storage?

At XYZ storage, our climate-controlled storage units have been used by many satisfied customers in the Toronto area. We have helped them protect a wide variety of items that are at risk in the heat and humidity by using a climate-controlled storage unit.

Media and Electronics

If you have media and electronics, keeping them in a controlled area at a storage unit through XYZ Storage will be beneficial in the long run. Otherwise, they may experience cracking and rusting, which would render them unusable in most cases. Media such as DVDs, vinyl records, and CDs should also be protected.


Furniture is another type of item that will benefit from a more stable environment. This is extremely important if your furniture is made out of metal, wood, upholstery, leather, or wicker. These types of materials are the most sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity.

Wood furniture may crack or become warped. Natural materials such as leather or natural upholstery fibers may grow mold and mildew. Antique furniture is also susceptible to damage from moisture and changes in the temperature inside the place where it is stored. Storing in the right environment will help upkeep the structural integrity of your furniture.

Musical Instruments

If you have musical instruments that you value, they will do well in our climate-controlled conditions. Many instruments are made of wood or metal, and would not fare well against changes in humidity and temperature. Even if they appear to be unharmed, exposure may tarnish their sound quality over time.


If you love wine and have older bottles that you are saving or aging, it is essential to store them in the right conditions. This is usually somewhere cool and dark as it has the potential to ruin the wine inside.

Fine Art and Photographs

Keep the artwork and photographs you love safe with one of our special units. Extreme heat and humidity may start to break down the pieces you value most.

Medications and Medical Supplies

If you can’t store medical supplies and medications at home, our stable spaces offer a reliable solution. It’s crucial to store these items properly, especially if they’re essential for treating a medical condition.

How Do You Know Climate-Controlled Storage is Right For You?

Climate-controlled storage spaces can be an added cost, so it is important to see if your belongings require a climate-controlled storage unit or not. A few things to consider include:

  • Are your belongings sensitive to temperature and humidity?
  • Do your belongings hold significant value or importance to you?
