How do you heat up a car fast?

What are some ways to heat up a car fast? I have to leave really early for work and hate getting into a cold car during winter. Most of the time, my car isn’t even warmed up until I’m at work!

Getting up early and having to ride to work in a cold car is a terrible combination. Thankfully, there are a few things you can try to heat up your car faster:
  • Turn the Temperature to Cold: Although it sounds counterintuitive, turning the temperature to cold and turning off the fan in your car can help your heating system gear up faster. Once you’ve been driving for a couple of minutes, you can switch the temperature to hot and turn on the fans.
  • Remote Start: If you’re able to, start your car remotely a few minutes before you leave to give it time to warm up before you get in.
  • Block Heater: You can purchase block heaters that warm up your engine before you leave, meaning your heat will kick in much faster.
While you wait for your car to heat up, why not take a moment to save some money on your car insurance policy? The Jerry app can save you time and money by collecting car insurance quotes for policies similar to your current one. Then, you can compare rates and choose your favorite. Jerry will even cancel your old policy for you!
