About Remote Starters

I love the remote starter I got installed in my car last year. It’s becoming colder and colder these days, and even now I find myself starting my car from inside the house so I don’t have to shiver on the way to work. However, aside from the comfort of getting into a toasty-warm car in the winter or an air conditioned car in the summer, there are several other advantages to getting a remote starter:

  • Warming up your car after a snow and ice ice storm helps melt the accumulation, allowing you to easily clean the car off and increase visibility.
  • Warming up a car before driving it allows the engine oil to become more viscous and provides more lubrication, which is beneficial for the engine.
  • A remote starter is a great selling point come time to resell your vehicle.

If you don’t already have a remote start system, now is a great time to get one before the demand comes in winter. This ensures that you have the remote starter system you want and don’t have to wait a long time for installation. We have several remote starters in-stock and will set one up for you at any of our mobile installation centers. For more information, see your local P.C. Richard & Son store today!
