5 Reasons Why You Need a Remote Car Starter

Remote Car Starters are one of those things that nobody really NEEDS….. Or do they? Let’s take a look at 5 reasons why you really DO need a remote car starter.


This one is pretty obvious. Nobody wants to get into a cold car in the winter or a scorching hot vehicle in the summer. A remote car starter solves this issue. With the press of a button, your car will be comfortable when you are ready to leave, even in the depths of a cold Baltimore Winter.

You will no longer need to spend 5 minutes or more scraping your windows on a sub-freezing morning. Your remote starter will take care of most of the heavy lifting. If the windows aren’t already clear, the warmed up windows will make light work of removing the remnants.


Don’t think of it as a Remote Car Starter. Think of it as a Remote Convenience System for your vehicle. Starting your vehicle is the tip of the iceberg (no pun intended). There is a long list of additional features that can be added to most vehicles:

  • Key-less Entry
  • Trunk Release
  • Power Sliding Door Control
  • Hands-free unlocking and locking
  • Vehicle Tracking and Telematics
  • Rear window defrost integration
  • Power window roll up
  • Headlight Control
  • Full Blown Vehicle Security
  • And much more

Longevity of Vehicle

One of the most damaging things that you can do to your vehicle’s motor is to hop in a cold vehicle and drive away without warming it up first. Unfortunately, when we are running late, we do just that. The first 5 miles of our commute turn into the “warm up time.” This can significantly shorten the life expectancy of your motor.

With a remote car starter simply pressing a button ensures that your motor will be properly warmed up and ready for your morning drive.

Time Savings

Perhaps the most overlooked, but arguably one of the most important reasons that you need a remote car starter is time savings. How much time do you spend each winter morning going out to your vehicle, starting it, scraping your windows, etc.? If you are like most, that answer is probably 5-10 minutes each day. More than 1/2 hour each week. Over 8 hours each winter season. Think about what you could be doing with that time instead:

  • Hang out with your children or significant other
  • Playing with your pet
  • A little more “Me Time”
  • Maybe just an extra 10 minutes of sleep

How do you put a price tag on these things?

Because You Want One!

Let’s face it. Sometimes you just need to take care of yourself. You’ve wanted a remote car starter since the first time you saw your neighbor’s vehicle start by itself while you were scraping your windows. You think about it every time she waves while you are shivering and rushing off to the office with your windows rolled down because you didn’t have time to scrape them.
