Why Choose A Climate-Controlled Storage Unit?

If you’re like most Windsor residents, then you probably have more than a few things that are taking up unnecessary space in your home. You may have considered renting a self-storage unit while you figure out which items to keep and which items to get rid of, but you may be wondering if you need to invest in a climate-controlled unit to protect your belongings while they’re in storage. You’ve come to the right place, because in today’s post, we’ll look at just a few of the many reasons why a climate-controlled storage unit from Eagle Crossing Self Storage may be the right choice for you.

The primary difference between a climate-controlled unit and a normal storage unit lies in the fact that you can control the amount of humidity in your unit. This makes them ideal for items that need to be protected from the elements. Which kinds of items are best stored in a climate-controlled unit? A few of the most common examples include:


If you collect paintings and fine artwork, then you may eventually run out of wall space and have to find somewhere to store your collection. Instead of putting your treasured pieces in your basement or a spare bedroom where they can be an eyesore, bring them to one of our self-storage units for safe keeping. You can access them whenever you’d like to put them back on the wall, and you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your treasured artwork will not warp or crack as the weather fluctuates.

Man Holding Box


It’s easy to collect too much clothing. Between tees from work, volunteering events, and the occasional shopping trip, your closet might be starting to overflow with garments. You might be considering donating some of your clothing, but you also may need some time to look through each item. If you’re thinking about giving away some of your clothing, then bring the items you’re not currently wearing to Eagle Crossing Self Storage to free up your closet while you decide what to keep.

Paper Items

You’ve almost certainly seen how books and other paper items look as they age. The pages become brittle and yellow, and they often take on a musty odor that can be smelled from a few feet away. While there’s no denying that all books will age with time, bringing the books that you want to keep in great condition to a climate-controlled self-storage unit is a great way to ensure that they’ll last for years to come.

Vinyl Records

Every record collector knows that vinyl needs to be stored carefully. In addition to ensuring that your records are stored vertically, you need to make sure that they’re not too hot or too cold, otherwise they can warp, break, or become damaged in other ways. If your collection is starting to encroach into other areas of your home, then bring the extras over to our storage facility for safe keeping.
