Remote Car Starter for the Win! Beat the Philly Heat this Summer

Summer is almost here and you know what that means… time to get on your bathing suits and welcome in the heat!

That is, if you like the heat.
Because the warmer weather doesn’t come without its difficult side effects.
And if you’re someone like us, who doesn’t enjoy getting in a boiling hot car, summer definitely brings along its problems.

But no worries! Because, we’ve got just the trick for you: remote car starter.

What is a remote car starter?

A remote car starter is a nifty little device that allows you to turn on your car from a remote distance. What this means, is that you don’t actually need to put your key in the ignition to get your car going. A remote car starter lets you turn on your engine from the comfort of your home, office, or wherever without having to stand by the car directly.

How does a remote car starter work?

Good question! Well, there are two essential pieces to a car remote starter. The first, is a small box that is connected to your car’s ignition. It’s important to have this part of the starter installed by a professional mechanic, since it is so closely connected to your car’s engine. This way you don’t have to worry about any installation damage to your car.

The second piece of a car remote starter, is the actual hand-held device. This is the piece that you take with you and that you directly press to turn on your car remotely. Like a TV remote. Except this one works a greater distance than couch to television set.

When you press on the hand-held device to turn on the car, the remote uses radio frequency to tell the box connected to your ignition to start the engine.

And voila!

How can a remote car starter help me with the summer heat?    

As much as we all love summer, the heat sometimes makes it almost unbearable to drive. Just remember that moment when you first open the car door and a blast of hot air hits you, stifling your breath. And how as you sit down, the hot leather of the seats burns the back of your legs and you can barely rest your hands on the too-hot-to-touch steering wheel.

It’s a nightmare!

But having a remote cart starter installed, solves this summer dilemma.
Because with a remote starter, you can turn on your car, and cool it down in advance. With a remote starter, you never have to sit inside your car waiting in the heat. Instead, you can get the engine warmed up while you’re still packing up your things indoors, and by the time you get to your car, the AC will be ready to rock and roll and cool the car down.
Essentially, installing a remote car starter gives you both comfort and time efficiency for an easy fix.

Does car window tint actually help regulate internal car temperature?

With the popularization of car window tints and sales on the rise, important questions are being asked.

And one of those major questions is: does having your car’s windows tinted, actually help with the temperature in your car? In other words, do tinted windows keep your car from getting excessively hot or cold? And if so, how does it really work?

Today, we’re going to answer these questions for you, breaking them down simply and understandably.

Let’s get debunking!

What is a car window tint?

A car window tint is just a thin layer of stained film. This darker film is placed on the inside of your car windows, providing your car with shade and privacy- like sunglasses. Car window tints come in all different percentage amounts, so you can get them darker or lighter. Whatever works for you best!

Just be sure that you check your local state tint regulations, because every state allows for a different maximum tint percentage (i.e some states don’t allow you to have windows that are too dark and could lead to security risks).

How can window tints help you?

Now a day, car window tint is made from ceramic, because ceramic allows for the best combination of transparency and protection.  

And, ceramic window tints help you in three main ways:

  • Privacy- It can be unsettling sometimes when you’re driving down the highway, or stuck in traffic, and you notice someone is staring in at you through the window. With tinted windows, you don’t have to worry about this uncomfortable feeling. Because, with tinted windows, though you can see perfectly out of them, people outside of the car are not able to see in quite as well. 

        Which means, more privacy for all the time you spend in your car driving! 

  • Sun protection- This is a biggie. Tinted windows protect you from sun glares, which we all know can be a huge driving hazard. AND, tinted windows also protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays. These rays are known to cause long term skin damage, and other skin ailments. But with tinted windows you can rest assured the health of your skin is being protected as you drive through your day.
  • Temperature regulation- And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for… Yes! Window tinting does, in fact, help regulate indoor car temperatures. Window tinting reduces the amount of heat trapped inside your car, lowering your car’s average heat during the summer. 

        Now, it depends what kind of window tint you get (so you have to check with your mechanic!), but some window tints also help your car retain heat during the cold winter months. Which means that if you get the right window tint, your car will be temperature regulated all year round.

So, if when you’re getting your car windows tinted, talk to your local professional tinter to find out about the different tints and which is best for you!
