Saskatchewan winters are really hard on vehicles. If you are one of the lucky ones to already have a Unit Heater for your garage then you know what I am referencing to. If not, here are some of the benefits that can be experienced, from the experts at Razor Heating & Air Conditioning themselves.
Q: How does the cold affect vehicles? Does it have many negative effects?
The rubber compound in all-season tires hardens when temps drop below? 7C, causing them to lose grip, whereas winter tires stay soft and stick to the road in sub-zero temperatures.
Motor oil thickens when cold, making it harder for the engine to turn over on the first start of the day. This is further exacerbated by the fact that battery output drops by about half at -18C. It also declines gradually with age, so an older battery that’s fine in warm weather might fail in the cold.
Your engine runs least efficiently during the first 20 minutes or so after cold start-up, before it has warmed to operating temperature.
Windshields will be more vulnerable to damage. Never use hot water to clear a frosted windshield, as it could crack. Alcohol sprays, such as Frost Buster, Prestone Heat or ordinary rubbing alcohol are safer alternatives. These can also be added to washer fluid to increase freeze-up protection.
Some of your items will be more susceptible to harm depending on the materials they are made of. Wood and metal will expand and contract during freezing and thawing, which can cause the material to warp or weaken and sometimes split or crack. Leather and other materials may yellow or degrade more easily after being exposed to freezing temperatures.
There are many reasons to support the installation of unit heaters whether it be recreational, storage, or for the purpose of a shop function.
