The Benefits of a Remote Starter

Convenience. It is what we strive for. And nothing is quite as convenient as a remote starter. This vehicular luxury can be purchased and installed as an aftermarket accessory.

This article from eHow.com explains several benefits to having a remote starter installed in your car, truck, or SUV.

A remote starter allows a driver to start a car’s engine with a remote control, usually in the form of an electronic key fob. Besides the obvious advantage of stepping into a warm (or cool) car, there are several benefits of having a remote starter. These benefits include:

Comfort

Comfort is the key. As we mentioned above, remote starters allow you to start your car from inside your home, meaning you can let your vehicle warm up in the winter or cool down in the summer. By leaving the heater or air conditioning in the “On” position, a driver can activate the remote starter then wait several minutes, during which time the climate control runs.

Safety

By allowing your car to warm up before driving, it makes ice and snow cleanup and defrosting much easier. All of this means greater visibility for you, the driver. Warming the car also melts snow and ice that can obstruct the headlights or brake lights, making your car more visible to other drivers, especially in snowy conditions.

Engine Care

Warming the car, before driving, is also beneficial for the engine. Because the car idles for several minutes before being driven, the engine oil becomes more viscous and provides better lubrication once the driver is ready to go.

Resale Value

Remote starters also add to the resale value of your vehicle, especially if you live in areas with extreme weather conditions.
