Everyone knows that heated self-storage units are the way to go if you have valuable items that would otherwise be destroyed by extreme temperatures. Yet, what you probably did not consider are the benefits to your person when you store things this way. Here are the benefits to you when you use one of these units in winter.
Getting the Holiday Decorations Out and Putting Them Away
Not everyone has a usable attic or basement in which to store their holiday decorations. You do not dare to store them in the garage either, since mice and other rodents could destroy the decorations. Storing them in an environment-controlled storage unit means that the decorations are safe, and that you stay quite cozy whenever you have to fetch the decorations out of storage or put them back.
You Do Not Freeze While Searching Boxes for Something Important
Imagine standing out in a self-storage unit that does not have heat and having to rummage through several boxes of stuff trying to find one particular item. It could take a few minutes, or it could take an hour or more. If it is just normal winter cold outside, you will begin to feel it about the half-hour mark. If the temperatures are sub-zero to the extremes, your fingers and toes, no matter how bundled you are, will feel this within minutes.
However, there are just some things that you have to find right away, and that requires searching your storage unit to get them. The cold is not a problem or a reason to put off your search when your unit is a toasty seventy degrees. Then an hour with frigid temperatures outside is really nothing and you do not feel pressured to find what you are looking for and get out to avoid freezing.
You Can Store Bottled Water and Canned Goods Without Worrying about Popped Bottles/Cans
If you want to store some extra beverages and/or canned foods because you have a large, extended family coming to visit, and you have nowhere else to stash these goods until the family arrives, you can do that in a heated unit. The liquids are protected against freezing and rupturing their bottles and cans. The canned food does not become a food-sicle and warp out the shape of the cans. Everything is the same temperature it would be outside your refrigerator and in your home, at home.
