With summer now in full force, your car battery can also take strain in the heat.
One of the quickest ways to take better care of your car battery is to minimise sun exposure and park your vehicle in the shade.
Here are some other tips to help increase the lifespan of your battery:
- Check that the fan belt is working. A durable fan belt in good working condition helps charge your battery.
- Monitor the water levels of your battery, and if need be, top it up yourself or one of our friendly staff member’s at Battery man can do it for you. If there isn’t sufficient water, it can affect the lifespan and performance of the battery.
- Also, keep an eye on the coolant levels – you don’t want your car to overheat or malfunction because of a lack of coolant.
- If you have an older car, with removable filler caps fitted to the battery, consider upgrading to a newer model. With older batteries, the fluid can evaporate quickly, which could result in the vehicle overheating.
