Benefits of Having a Remote Starter

Cold nights and hot days. Cars act as giant insulators, attracting temperature then sealing it in for the owners to feel. It’s hot. The sun is beating into your car all day. You sit down, get ready to go, and you cannot bear the heat another second. Why would you deal with this? It’s cold outside; you run out of the house, scrape the ice from your windshield, fight with your frozen lock cylinder and finally make it into your car. You sit down on your nice leather seats only to jump right back up. It is colder inside the vehicle than it was outside trying to get into it. You start the vehicle and wait for the engine to come to temp. Twenty minutes and a runny nose later, you’re finally on your way with decent warmth. Sound like a typical morning or night? You need a remote starter!

Remote starters provide their owner with years of comfort and convenience. Remote start units have the ability to start the vehicle from a distance, usually around 600-1000ft, by remote. Most remote car starters also have the ability to remotely lock and unlock your doors. Say its dead winter, you know its going to be cold in the morning. You would set the heat and defroster in your vehicle to high the night before. When you wake up in the morning, start the vehicle while you are getting ready. Your engine will be warmed, windows defrosted and the cab of the vehicle will be heated. How much better could it be? It works the same in the heat. Set your air conditioner to high cold. Remote start the vehicle five minutes before your ready to leave. It will be an icebox when you open the door!

Along with the comfort of having your vehicle climate controlled when you open the door, most remote start units also have a built in keyless entry function. This will allow you to lock and unlock your doors from the press of a button. This is especially handy when locks are frozen and you simply need to open the vehicle, not start it. Keyless entry saves you time, hassle and keeps those annoying paint scrapes caused by keys away!

Remote start units come with a wide range of options. Read our article on “ Choosing a Remote Starter” to learn about them. Installation is not tremendously difficult, although professional installation is available if you are not comfortable with the task. Try one out, it just might make your week!
