Summertime Kills Batteries | New Orleans Auto Care | 70404

When the hot summer weather takes a toll on your car battery, it’s time to get help from the New Orleans auto care pros at Twin Tire.

If drivers think about auto maintenance during the hot summer, their thoughts generally go to their car’s auto air conditioner. After all, your auto a/c is all that stands between you and a miserable, sweaty drive home at night after a stressful day of work. It’s natural that you’d want to make sure your auto air is working at top efficiency.

But, if you can’t get your car started, you’re not only not going to be cool on the drive home, you’re not going to make that drive home without some help. So it makes sense to also pay a lot of attention to your car battery.

Summer heat is tougher on car batteries than winter’s chill. It may seem counterintuitive, but higher temperatures have a greater impact on the power-generating chemistry inside,” says.

Consumer Reports adds, “And it’s not just about air temperature. Hot summer temps drive up the heat under the hood and accelerate the onset of battery failure. As a result, many motorists wind up stuck along the roadside in the summer. AAA reports that it responded to 1.8 million battery-related service calls [last summer].”

Routine inspection and maintenance are hugely important to prolong battery life and to check battery health so you can be confident that your car will start when you want it to start. And it doesn’t take long – you can easily swing by Twin Tire Auto Care between museum visits during New Orleans Museum Month.

Or, you can set a side a special time to have the New Orleans auto care techs at Twin Tire give your car a once over to make sure it’s doing well in the summer heat.
