How do you warm up a car faster?

What’s the best way to warm up your car faster? It gets really cold in my town and I feel like my car takes ages to warm up. I’m sick of waiting so long for it every single morning.

There’s nothing worse than hopping in a freezing car for an early morning commute. Luckily, you can use these tricks to warm up your car faster:
Turn the temperature to low and keep the fan off. Okay, I know that sounds a little nuts—but think of it like an oven. If you leave the door open, it’ll never get warm! But if you keep it closed, it gets hot pretty fast. If you want your car to heat up quickly, leave it on cold so the engine can warm up first, then put the heater on blast!
Start the car before getting in. The logic here is pretty simple: if you start the car before you eat breakfast, it’ll be warm by the time you’re ready to drive! If you have a newer car, it may even come with a remote start option for this exact reason.
Buy a space heater. This may not be the most professional-sounding option, but you can buy heaters for cars! They plug into your cigarette lighter and help keep the cabin warm. It’s a basic, reliable solution!
