Regular storage units only offer protection from direct elements such as snow, wind, and rain. The climate controlled units protect your stored items from dew buildup, Moisture buildup leading to dampness and frost that occur as the elements roll in the outside.
An added benefit of opting for climate controlled storage units is the protection from insects and wildlife. Most storage units are just built to keep your items safe from the elements and that’s it. Some have features that protect your items safe from rodents but they will never make one that is insect proof.
