How do you keep your car warm in the winter?

Every time I get inside for my morning commute, it’s freezing! I need a way to make it stay warm, so I can drive more comfortably. What’s the best way to make sure my car stays warm during the winter?

Answer
Cold cars are a pain, especially when it comes to morning commutes. Luckily, you have plenty of steps you can take to stay warm. Some remedies include letting your car warm up or buying a car-safe space heater.
Here are some other top tips for keeping your car warm in the winter:
  • Park in a garage if you can. While the garage can still get pretty cold, keeping your car indoors will stop it from being exposed to extreme temperatures.
  • Start your car and let the engine heat up before you get in. Since your heater actually gets hot air from the engine, this step can help you warm up much faster.
  • Cover the windshield whenever you park your car for a long time. The windshield is the least insulated part of your car, so keeping it covered can maintain a warm car.
  • Get a space heater for your car so you can start warming up straight away. Plenty of car-safe options work with your cigarette lighter!
