Classic car storage climate control FAQs

Why are climate control solutions important for classic car storage?

Extreme humidities are the greatest threat to priceless autos. The dated materials used in their construction are often highly susceptible to overly moist or dry environments.

Paintwork can peel and flake. Wood can warp and bend. Important components rust and break down. Over time, this can harm the performance of your vehicles, lead to costly repairs, or even be impossible to fix altogether.

Preserve your collection of automotive history for the next generation with total peace of mind. Trust our collection of smart, powerful dehumidifiers for classic car storage, and keep indoor humidity levels optimised year round.

What types of climate control solutions are commonly used for classic car storage?

While garages and showrooms traditionally relied on heaters and air-conditioning for classic car storage, smart collectors, curators and operators employ dehumidifiers to address water vapour in the most energy-efficient, cost-effective way possible.

What temperature and humidity levels are ideal for classic car storage?

While no two environments will be identical, in most cases classic car storage facilities should aim to maintain a relative humidity between 55% and 60%, and a temperature of 18°C to 20°C.

Can your climate control solutions prevent rust and corrosion in classic cars?

Yes. To prevent moist air from condensing on vintage vehicles and rusting body panels, dedicated dryers remove potentially damaging water from the atmosphere without making it too dry.

Engineered from the ground-up to be as efficient and effective as possible, our leading range of dehumidifiers are trusted by motor museums, private collectors, classic car workshops and dealerships in Europe and beyond.

Are climate control solutions necessary for short-term classic car storage?

Yes. Rust can spread to cover an area as large as 12m² in as little as 55 days. That is why it is hugely important to establish the ideal environment for your antique motors from day one.

How can climate control solutions benefit classic car restoration workshops?

Classic car restoration projects can be time-consuming processes. To preserve your pristine work, dehumidifiers protect the condition of your clients’ vintage motors effortlessly for the entire duration of a project.

Creating the right conditions is also essential for the wellbeing and productivity of your employees. By aiding their concentration, reducing sick days, and boosting productivity, dedicated climate control can benefit the core of your operations.

Finally, compared to traditional heating, dehumidifiers represent a more efficient and cost-effective solution for maintaining the ideal conditions. This will help you save on your energy bills now and going forward.

Can your climate control solutions be installed in existing garages or storage spaces?

Yes. We have a varied range of fixed and portable solutions able to fit in practically any existing garage or classic car storage unit.
