Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need climate-controlled storage?

If you plan to store temperature-sensitive items at Extra Space Storage, then you may need climate-controlled storage. These items include but are not limited to:

  • Paper documents

  • Artwork

  • Furniture

  • Clothing

  • Musical instruments

  • Electronics

  • Antiques

  • Business inventory

At Extra Space Storage, climate-controlled units typically stay between 55 and 80 degrees year-round to help prevent damage caused by extreme cold or heat. Damage caused by extreme temperature changes can include cracking, warping, fading, developing mold, and more.

If you live in a region of the U.S. that experiences seasonal changes or extreme high and low temperatures, then you could benefit from renting a storage unit with climate control.
