Outdoor Storage vs. Indoor Climate-Controlled Storage

Published on 8/25/2022

As you start to learn more about climate-controlled storage, it quickly becomes apparent what the primary benefits are when you invest in these units:

Maintaining a consistent temperature ensures the stored items are protected from extreme elements, which should protect the overall quality of the items inside.

We believe it’s one of the best investments anyone can make, especially if they choose to store items such as electronics, clothing, personal heirlooms, furniture, and more. All of these items can be negatively affected by extreme cold or heat, and having a climate-controlled unit helps maintain their quality.

But during many people’s research, a common question tends to pop up:

“Should I opt for outdoor storage or indoor climate-controlled storage?”

It’s a question we get all the time, and it’s something you should always ask yourself before investing in a storage unit. The main difference between these two units is that, more often than not, outdoor storage does not come with any sort of climate control. Although there are certain units that do offer that, more often than not it doesn’t. With that said, outdoor storage does have its pros, with the biggest being ease of access! A lot of these units can easily be accessed, with some having drive-up access!

As for indoor climate-controlled units, the big benefit here is that your stored belongings will be sitting in a temperature-regulated environment. Protection from severe heat and cold is one of the best ways to preserve the quality of items like furniture, mattresses, clothing, and electronics. Although navigating hallways when moving stuff into a unit can be tough, especially if they are at an awkward size, the long-term benefits can really pay dividends.
