Why Choose Climate Controlled Storage?2016-11-04T21:21:45-04:00

How Do I know if I need Climate Controlled Storage?

Determining whether or not you need to store your items in a climate controlled storage unit is a matter of thinking about how exposure to humidity and extreme temperatures of your climate would effect your items over time. It is impossible to prevent some humidity and moisture from being inside of a space where the temperature is not controlled and maintained and the environment is not constant.  Temperatures between 55°F and 85°F are maintained in our climate controlled storage units. At Patterson’s Self Storage, all of our units are securely enclosed and resistant to pests and outdoor elements, however a climate controlled storage unit offers a level of control that offers maximum dust and humidity protection for your valuables and/or equipment.  If you will be storing your things for a long time (several months or more) and during periods of drastic changes in the weather, we recommend climate controlled storage.  (We have cold winters with temperatures in the 30’s and hot, humid summers here in Waxhaw!) 

Also if you plan on visiting your storage unit often, it would be nice to keep your unit conditioned year round so that you will be comfortable when moving around inside of your unit upon each visit.  Here is a list of items that you should strongly consider storing in a conditioned, climate controlled space:

•Computers, Stores

•Photos, Books



•Family Heirlooms
