Old man winter is definitely upon us! As the weather temperature drops for us outside New Jersey, it’s time to take out the winter coats, gloves and hats. Just as the cold weather is shocking to our system and requires us to keep warm, the same is true of your favorite Sansone Jr’s 66 Automall car’s battery.
The optimum temperature for your car’s battery is 80° F; at this temperature your battery is operating at 100 percent capacity. By the time it reaches 0° F your battery is only operating at about 50 percent capacity. The winter weather certainly affects your batteries power, and you wouldn’t want to end up with a dead battery in the middle of winter. Thankfully, there are some things you can do to prevent this.
The best prevention for keeping your car battery operating as effectively as it can during the winter months is your garage. Keeping your car out of the elements is always the most effective way of stopping damage to your car. If however, this is not a possibility, you can invest in a battery heater to take you and your New Jersey car battery through the winter months.
The purpose of a battery heater is as it sounds: to keep your car’s battery warm and cozy throughout the long winter nights. A battery heater can keep your car operating better during the winter, prolong the life of your car battery and make it easier to start your engine come morning. There are several choices available when it comes to purchasing one, so check them out and see which one suits you and your automobile best.
Remember also, to have your battery checked by a professional to prevent and correct any wear and tear that may occur. Stop by and see your friendly parts and service departments at Sansone Jr’s 66 Automall. We can check out your battery and assist you with anything you may need. We will be happy to help you and your battery stay warm this winter!
