Have you ever spent a winter on the East coast? If so, you’ll understand what is meant by the word “cold.” Temperatures can quickly drop into the negative digits during the winter here, and there’s nothing worse than getting into a car for work that has been sitting in the cold all night. A remote starter will warm up your vehicle and de-ice the windows, offering you a warm and toasty environment. Scraping windows for frost and ice will quickly become a distant memory.
Depending on where you live, the frigid weather could be one of the best reasons to buy and install a remote starter for your vehicle. When you've been at work all day you know the agony that comes from climbing behind the wheel of the frozen vehicle. If you work long hours, chances are your car has sat in a freezing lot for several hours. At Car Pretty, we feel your pain, and we are proud to offer some of the best remote starters on the market.
Driving a car with an engine that has been warmed up for a few minutes is much better than driving a car that has been sitting in freezing temperatures for an 8-hour work day. With a remote starter, you can alleviate the problem of driving away in an ice box. Instead, you have the luxury of ensuring your car has been warmed up by the time you get in the driver’s seat. What’s even better- using a remote starter greatly increases the longevity and performance of your engine.
Aside from the obvious comfort factor, there are other reasons for considering a remote car starter. Pre-heating a car with a remote start means that instead of climbing into a car that has been sitting in a frozen tundra of a parking lot, you can now climb into a car that feels like it’s been roasting in the tropics. A remote starter also makes it much easier to defrost and remove ice and snow from the windows, mirrors, and headlights. Have you ever seen people driving in winter with four inches of snow still sitting on their hoods? This is both unnecessary and unsafe.
At Car Pretty, we work to serve both Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. We know that you’ll benefit from a remote starting system that is packed with safeguards and safety features to protect your vehicle. Some of the available remote starting systems come equipped with a valet mode that temporarily inhibits remote starting. The valet mode is useful for those times when your car is parked by an attendant.
Be warned, however - some county police officers are now issuing tickets for people who leave their remote started vehicles unattended. If your car is unattended, you increase the chances of having it stolen. Be sure that if you use the remote car system, that you do not leave your vehicle unattended for an extended period of time.
