Climate controlled storage at Reno Self Storage Services - Silverado Self Storage Reno NV

Do I need climate-controlled storage?

If you’ve ever scratched your head and wondered why a climate-controlled storage unit is important, we are here to tell you: it keeps your valuable items protected.

It’s no secret that extreme temperatures can damage stored items and materials. At Silverado Self Storage, we ensure our climate-controlled storage spaces keep the temperature from falling below 55°F and rising above 85°F. This maintains the quality of your belongings so that your possessions look as pristine as the day you brought them here.

By eliminating temperature fluctuations, we keep our storage spaces at a constant temperature year-round. We know that climate-controlled storage spaces may be more expensive than traditional storage units, but you can rest easy knowing your valuable items are protected. The added cost is insignificant and gives you peace of mind knowing your belongings are protected.

Our climate-controlled units have great air quality. Our units continuously circulate air, which ensures that the air remains clean. This eliminates the need to “air out” your unit. If you’re storing electronics or documents, air quality is an especially important factor in selecting a storage unit.
Traditional storage units work for household or yard items, but climate-controlled spaces are best for antiques, wood or leather furniture, and art. If you are putting all of these items together in a storage unit, we’d highly recommend a climate-controlled unit.
