Climate-Controlled Self Storage Units

Protect your delicate items with quality climate-controlled self storage units from My Garage Self Storage®

Why Climate Control?

By maintaining constant temperatures, these climate-controlled self storage units keep your stuff in a protected environment!

If you’re storing anything that absolutely must be kept in a temperature controlled environment, a climate-controlled self storage unit offers another layer of protection! These units have air conditioning systems that prevent the temperature in your unit from going too high.

They also cycle the air, which keeps humidity low too! By keeping heat out and keeping humidity low, your stored items are much less likely to be damaged by changing temperatures, mold, or mildew.

As the seasons change and the heat goes up and down, your items will expand and contract. Over time, this could warp wooden items, damage appliances, and completely ruin electronics. If you’re storing for more than a month or two, a climate-controlled self storage unit might be the way to go!

Extreme Temperatures Can Ruin Your Items

Protect them with climate-controlled storage

Wooden Furniture

High temperatures can cause wooden furniture to swell and warp, but excessive cold can cause it to shrink and potentially crack! Store your furniture in a climate-controlled self storage unit to avoid both extremes.


All electronics are sensitive to extreme temperatures. The microscopic parts have very little margin for error, so any expansion or contraction can make them unusable.

Musical Instruments

Any change in shape can put your instruments permanently out of tune! Extreme temperatures, especially over long periods of storage, can turn your favorite instrument into expensive decorations.

Avoiding Heat Damage

Excessive heat can cause certain items to warp, expand, or otherwise be damaged during storage! 

As temperatures rise, everything in the unit expands very slightly. Then when the temperatures fall again, the items contract - but not always in the exact same shape! 

If you’re storing anything with delicate parts or precise fittings, the constant temperature changes can ruin them. 

Upgrade to a climate-controlled self storage unit if you’re storing electronics, furniture, appliances, musical instruments, cameras, film, records, cassettes, or anything else sensitive to changing temperatures! Our units will stay between the temperature range of 64-85 degrees Fahrenheit.

Protecting Against Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew are some of the biggest dangers stored items face, and they require moisture to grow. That means humidity control can help protect your stored items! 

Items such as leather, fabric, upholstery, and wood are particularly susceptible to mold damage. 

Other delicate items, including cameras and musical instruments, can be ruined by fungal growth. 

If you’re storing in a humid environment, our climate-controlled self storage units can be a great upgrade!
