Certain families require different storage methods. Humboldt’s advice is that climate controlled storage is not for most items, but for goods that include, but are not limited to:

-Art collections: fine art is sensitive to temperature and humidity change.
-Large wine collections: the quality of the wine collection can be influenced by the change in temperature.
-Antiques: wooden antiques could vary in size due the increase in humidity and temperature.
