4 Practical Benefits to Installing a Remote Car Starter Iva Larochelle December 8, 2016 Automotive It may at first seem like a luxury addition but Tech Teinte car starters actually have a lot of practical benefits that might encourage you to consider moving in that direction. As such, here are four practical benefits to installing a remote car starter in your vehicle. COMFORT One of the best reasons to install a remote car starter is comfort. If you live in particularly cold climate, for example, you can start your car long before you venture out into the freezing temperatures to drive. If you leave your heater on when you last drove the car, the remote start will also engage the heater, allowing you to more efficiently heat the interior while you remain comfortably snuggled up in the house. MAINTENANCE Another excellent reason to install a remote car starter has to do with the health of the engine. Cold starting can be difficult for an engine, particularly in an older vehicle. The fluids may be frozen or, at least, not quite in the appropriate viscous state to effectively lubricate gears, etc. But driving when the engine is cold is really the problem. So, with that in mind, installing a remote starter lets you quickly and easily start the engine from inside the house long before you will need to drive, giving the engine enough time to effectively warm up and reducing the risk of damage from driving with a cold engine. SAFETY There are actually two safety features that go along with having a remote car starter. First of all, remote key fobs have alarm that can fend off potential thieves or other shady characters. However, remote starting can help you get on the road more quickly. Perhaps you are in an unfamiliar town or alone in a parking garage. Remote starting gets the vehicle ready to evacuate without unlocking the doors. You can start the car, approach the vehicle, unlock the doors using the same key fob, and then get in and drive away quickly. RESALE VALUE Finally, every vehicle with modifications tends to have a higher resale value and this is true of cars with after-market remote starters installed. The other benefits listed above make this vehicle more desirable than similar vehicles that may also be for sale; which means you can charge more for it if you decide to sell your car down the road.
