Tips for Starting Your Heavy Truck or Equipment in the Cold
For those living or working in Calgary and southern Alberta, we know winters are a relentless battle against Mother Nature's icy grip.
With temperatures plunging to a staggering -40 degrees, the cold isn't just inconvenient—it's a formidable adversary. Imagine waking up to your day ahead and knowing that your first challenge will be to muster the courage to step outside and face the Arctic chill, all to start your heavy truck or industrial equipment.
But let's be honest: the show must go on in many industries, regardless of how unforgiving the weather may be. From construction to transportation, the work doesn't have a "pause button" for extreme conditions. This means you're often left with no choice but to keep your truck plugged in around the clock, fingers crossed that it'll muster enough power to start.
And let's not forget, each of those cold starts isn't just a battle against the elements; it's a silent assault on the very heart of your vehicle—its engine.
Every ignition in these low temperatures gradually contributes to engine wear, and you're fully aware of it, adding an extra layer of stress to an already taxing situation.
Why not consider a better solution? Our service experts at West Tech Mobile have just the fix for you.
Webasto Hydronic Heaters: The Solution for Your Cold-Start Needs
If the biting cold has ever left you dreading that first engine start of the day, we have the ultimate solution: Webasto hydronic heaters.
Designed to integrate seamlessly with your vehicle's coolant system, these heaters provide reliable starts in even the most unforgiving weather. And this is not just a winter wonder; remember that nearly 80% of engine wear occurs during cold starts.
Why compromise your vehicle's longevity and performance when you don't have to? With an investment in a high-quality Webasto heater, you can be sure that your vehicle will always be ready to go. But there’s more to it than just a warmer startup:
Enhanced Engine Performance and Longevity
A Webasto coolant heater is more than just a convenient feature; it's an investment in your vehicle's future. By eliminating the harsh conditions of cold starts, you're proactively minimizing engine wear, enhancing fuel efficiency, and ultimately, extending the life of your vehicle.
Economical and Eco-Friendly
The benefits extend to your wallet and the planet. With reduced idling time, you'll notice a significant cut in fuel consumption, which also leads to reduced greenhouse gas emissions. It's an eco-conscious choice that pays for itself over time.
Extra Layer of Security
Worried about leaving your vehicle unattended while it warms up? A Webasto coolant heater adds a subtle yet effective layer of anti-theft protection. Since your vehicle can warm up without being turned on, you're less likely to attract unwanted attention.
Enjoy The Comfort of a Heated Cabin
And for those who thought it couldn't get any better, think again! In addition to heating your coolant, we can also install an auxiliary cabin air heater. This ensures that the moment you step into your vehicle, it's as warm and welcoming as your living room.
Whether you're an early bird or a night owl, the clock shouldn't dictate your comfort. That's why you can program your Webasto heater to turn on and off based on your schedule. Just adjust for the outside temperature, and your vehicle will be ready when you are.
