When your battery dies, you are sure to know it, as your car simply won’t start.
The battery in your car is responsible for providing the initial power to turn the engine over. How can you know if you need a new car battery?
You can have your battery tested at Akron Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center. Our technicians can quickly attach it to a battery testing meter and determine if your charge is low. This can be done at any time – even before your battery dies. Think about having this complimentary service during your next oil change.
Experts at the Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center in Akron say that your car’s battery can be expected to last from three to five years. If you are within that window, or over it, then it may be time to purchase a new battery.
Another time that you may need a new battery or experience a low charge on a battery is when you haven’t driven for a while. Though your battery provides the initial power to start the car, the car actually recharges the battery when you drive.
Challenging weather can cause you to need a new battery sooner. Cold, frigid temperatures can drain your battery more quickly than temperate weather. Heavy duty batteries are designed to hold a charge in all weather and may be a good option if you drive consistently in cold weather.
