Here at StorageVille we are proud to offer temperature controlled storage. If you’ve ever lived or stayed in our city for a period you will have experienced at least one of our four distinct seasons – maybe even within the same day! And don’t forget the fifth season …High humidity.
What is temperature controlled storage?
You might be wondering what “temperature controlled storage” is? How it differs from “climate controlled storage?” Temperature controlled storage refers to the act of controlling the ‘temperature’ directly within a given space – i.e., our storage units. The temperature is just one part of what makes up climate within a region. Controlling the temperature of a storage unit means we have a centralized heating and cooling system. This is similar to your home’s furnace and air conditioning – with the ability to adjust via a thermostat within your storage building. The air conditioning also removes humidity within the building.
In what ways is climate controlled storage different?
Climate, on the other hand, refers to average conditions for a region over time. The conditions making up climate are best described using many different weather terms. These include rainfall, wind speed, humidity, barometric pressure, humidex, wind chill factor, and, of course, temperature. No storage operator can control the climate.
When should you use temperature controlled storage?
We highly recommend the use of temperature controlled storage for any time you are storing sensitive materials or valuables – monetary, household items, sentimental or otherwise. Our temperature controlled units simulate the conditions in your own home. We feel this includes all seasons – especially a Winnipeg summer. The heat can be just as damaging on your valuables as cold can be.
Due to Winnipeg’s climate and potential temperature swings within a season (or even a 24-hour period) we feel this is the reason we must offer temperature controlled storage. In doing so, we give you peace of mind knowing there’s added protection from the harsh elements that a non-temperature controlled locker does not provides for your stored valuables.
