We’re frequent proponents of the benefits of climate-controlled storage. It’s the best way to keep the widest variety of items safe, secure, and protected in an easy-to-use and access way. We’ve talked about the benefits of climate-controlled storage before, but today we’re digging deeper. Here’s a list of nine lesser-known benefits of climate-controlled storage.
It helps you to protect family heirlooms.
Whether it’s great grandma’s beloved wooden buffet or boxes of old family photos, climate-controlled storage makes sure they don’t fall victim to mold and mildew.
It can keep your wine collection tasting great.
Wine collections are a precarious thing. The way a particular bottle of wine tastes can change over time depending on the temperature, humidity levels, and other subtleties. A controlled environment allows for controlled taste, which helps to secure the valuation of rare bottles over time.
It can protect leather furniture.
Just like wooden furniture, leather furniture is especially sensitive to humidity levels. If it’s too dry it can become fragile and crack. If it’s too humid, mold can develop on and within it. You have to keep leather furniture in just the right conditions. Conditions like the inside of a climate-controlled storage unit, for instance!

Storing instruments in a secure and controlled environment is essential if you want to preserve the integrity of their sound over time.
