REMOTE CAR STARTERS & ALARMS
Remote Car Starter Systems
The biggest benefit of a remote starter is the comfort of having a car that is warm or cool before you get in. 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. Because the car is operating without the keys in the ignition or the driver present, most remote starters also include controls for locking the doors to secure the car remotely.
There is also a safety benefit to having a remote starter. By allowing an icy car to warm up before driving, it is easier to scrape or defrost the windows, resulting in greater visibility for 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.
Warming the car, before driving, is beneficial for the engine. For the car's climate control system to start producing warm air, the engine must first warm up as it runs. 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. This warm up period is especially beneficial for cars or trucks with diesel engines, but gas engines also benefit from this feature.
A remote starter also increases the resale value of your car, especially if you live in an area with extreme climate conditions. While it may not be as important as the car's overall condition or mileage, it can still be a useful selling point or a reason to demand more value for a trade-in at a dealership.
