Make Sure Your Car Heater & Defroster Will Work this Winter

November 9, 2015

Cold days are right around the corner. With winter approaching, it is a good idea to make sure your auto heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems are in proper working condition. Not only does your heating and cooling system keep you warm while driving, it also reduces the moisture in the vehicle and clears your windows and windshield of fog and ice. For these reasons, driving without a properly operating AC system is uncomfortable and dangerous.

How can you ensure your vehicle’s heater will work when you need it most? First, visit our Coupons page to view our current Maintenance Packages and Service Specials. If you’re considering a Cooling System Flush or are due for an oil change, our maintenance packages are a good place to start. Ask your Rad Air service manager to inspect your heating and defroster system.

Regular maintenance is the key to ensuring your heating system will work. Heat created in your engine’s cooling system is pushed into the vehicle’s cabin to keep you warm. While the weather is still comfortably cool, turn on your vehicle’s heater to make sure it warms up to your expectations. If it doesn’t seem like it is hot enough (roughly 150 degrees), consider making an appointment to have it checked out. Doing this test now will prevent the unwanted scenario of driving without heat on a cold day!
