A remote car starter from Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver or Victoria is a great way to cool down a hot car. While most people associate them with warming up cars, trucks and SUVs in the middle of winter, remote starters are equally beneficial in giving your air conditioner time to cool your car off on a hot day. Let’s take a look at the comfort and safety benefits of a remote starter.
A Hot Car can be Dangerous
Undoubtedly you have heard stories about the dangers of a hot vehicle. The interior of a vehicle can become dangerously hot in a matter of minutes. Even when it’s 25 degrees out, the inside of a car, truck or SUV can exceed 35 degrees. For the elderly or children, even getting into a hot vehicle can be dangerous.
A remote car starter from Ralph’s Radio will give your air conditioner time to start cooling off the interior of your vehicle. Even three or four minutes can make a world of difference to the temperature.
How Does a Remote Starter Cool My Car?
When you park your vehicle, simply set the climate controls to cool the vehicle, then head on your way. When you remote start the car, the starter system energizes the appropriate circuits to activate the climate controls. In less than a minute (in most cases), cool air will be coming from the vents and the temperature inside the vehicle will start to drop quickly.
A Perfect Solution All Year
Remote starters aren’t designed for a single specific season. They are as much of a benefit on a colder winter morning as they are on a hot summer day. In the winter, we can automatically activate the rear window defroster to melt frost and turn on the heated seats to make the interior more comfortable. If you have automatic climate controls, you don’t need to remember to set anything. The system will automatically warm or cool the interior as needed.
