Heated Storage: Do I Need It?

Many people are under the assumption that they need heated storage. The truth is, there aren’t many items that need to be placed in a heated unit. Here at Medicine Hat Storage, we’ve decided to prevent the guessing of “should it or shouldn’t it” by compiling a list of items that need heated storage below.thermometer

  • Wood (oak, cherry wood or other expensive woods that shouldn’t be in damp or dry areas)
  • Family heirlooms or antiques
  • TV/Computer Screens (follow our link for more information: Televisions and Storage )
  • Leather furniture
  • Musical instruments (cold temperatures can change the tuning of the instruments)
  • Paintings and other expensive art

Televisions and Storage

Can I store my TV? A burning question for all of us technology lovers, we don’t want to get it home and it doesn’t work. In order to clear up this confusion, we’ve contacted the major electronics companies regarding storage for their LED, LCD, and Plasma television screens.

Fuzzy TVNote: These are the ranges of the brands if you’d like a specific model information please contact them directly as it may vary. It is greatly recommended from all companies to acclimate your television after taking it out of storage. This means letting the television warm up to room temperature for 24 hours before plugging it in and using it.
