Is there a liability issue when the units are incorrectly designated and advertised?

Company Guardian Storage Centers - Darrell Clark

Is it still valid to call storage units that are Temperature Controlled but not Humidity Controlled, "Climate Controlled?" Is there a liability issue when the units are incorrectly designated and advertised?

Climate Control means that the temperature inside the building is kept at a constant, usually around 78 degrees in the summer months and 62 in the winter. Maintaining temps will also help alleviate humidity issues however, Humidity Control is entirely different from Climate Control, whereas CC regulates temperatures and HC just regulates the amount of moisture in the air. So, designating your temperature regulated units as Climate Control is completely valid.

I would agree with Kevin and would add that regardless what you are calling them - you have protections in your lease in the event power goes out or there is a mechanical breakdown, etc. if your using the NCSSA lease - you should be covered.

More and more folks are calling temperature controlled "Heated and Cooled" Humidity Controlled just that and those that have both Climate Controlled. Like Lynn says, your lease should address any issues to relieve you of liability. I think currently most people are calling Temp Controlled, Climate Controlled but I think we as an industry can probably be more concise.
