Make a Remote Starter Your Key to Winter Warmth
As frigid temperatures dominate these early days of winter and the New Year, remote starters can help you ease your discomfort. It’s hard to leave the warmth of your home or office for a cold car, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Treat yourself to a post-holiday season gift you’ll value throughout the year as a remote starter can also cool down your car’s interior when the summer heat becomes unbearable. Many starters work from as far away as 1,500 feet, allowing you to turn on the motor before you need to get in your car. One of the keys to maximizing a remote starter’s effectiveness is to have your heater or air conditioner set to turn on when the car starts. The best remote starters combine the starter function with door & trunk unlock features, so you only need to carry one key fob. Remote starters can also provide additional safety, including doors staying locked until you’re next to the car and the motor shutting off after 10 or 15 minutes if you’re not in the vehicle by then. These advantages far outweigh the drawbacks, which include additional fuel consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from idling, as well as additional wear on your exhaust system and spark plugs.
With great deals going on throughout the month of January, now is right time to get a remote starter. Learn more about the warmth a remote starter can bring.
Remote Car Starters Offer Many Advantages
As colder temperatures become a reality, take the sting out of winter and do your car a favor by investing in a remote starter. These key fob-sized devices allow you to increase your comfort, and that of your passengers, by starting your car’s heating system – or the car itself – before you’re ready to leave. (You get the same advantage for activating the air conditioning on hot summer days.)
By starting the car before you get in, you’re able to warm the engine so it sufficiently heats up oil and other engine lubricants and distributes them to components for optimal functioning. Starting the heater ahead of time also melts any ice or snow on the windshield and windows, as well as on headlights, increasing your own safety, and that of other drivers on the road, in cold or foggy weather.
Additionally, remote starters increase your security by allowing you to lock the doors and prevent a burglar from driving the car away while you’re warming it up. (Not all insurance policies cover that type of loss.)
With systems priced as low as $159.99, fully installed, car starters are a practical way to minimize the impact of the elements on your body, your car and your bank account.
Myths & Facts About Remote Car Starter Systems
When it comes to remote car starter systems, it can be difficult to separate fiction from reality. That’s because many aftermarket installation shops tell customers anything to make a sale. At Team Nutz, honesty has always been our policy. In that spirit, here’s useful, unbiased information you can use to decide which automatic starter is best for your vehicle.
Myth: Remote Starters void warranties.
Fact: They do not. In fact, we work with car dealers to install remote starters on their new vehicles.
Myth: Remote Starters are bad for your engine.
Fact: Allowing your engine to pre-heat before driving in cold weather allows engine oil to reduce its viscosity (“thin out”) and flow better. It also makes your drivetrain last longer.
Myth: Remote Starter signals don’t need a lot of range.
Fact: Even if you park near a window at your home or office, a longer-range signal helps you remote-start your car in a variety of places you go frequently, such as grocery stores, restaurants, malls and the gym.
Myth: Remote Starters are easy to install.
Fact: Modern electrical systems in vehicles are very complex, and installing a remote starter requires the expertise of a technician who knows how to interface with multiplexed wiring and Can-BUS networks.
Myth: Remote Starters can’t be used with manual transmissions & diesel engines.
Fact: We have the know-how to install Remote Starters in “stick shift” vehicles, and because diesel engines take longer to warm up than gasoline engines, our Starters can make winter more bearable.

Winterize Your Car and Yourself with a Remote Starter
Experts say that the #1 thing to do before temperatures go south is to check your battery. In a Consumer Reports article, “A Cold-weather Survival Guide for Your Car,” the important last point that CR makes is to let the engine warm up. The nation’s go-to source for product testing indicates that modern cars can be started and driven away but a brief bit of idling time gives the oil a chance to heat up, thin out and flow more smoothly. Revving the car isn’t smart and waiting for the idle speed to drop before putting the car in gear increases transmission life. It’s time to make the winter months less tough on your car and YOU. Take a cue from CR and warm up your car with a remote starter installation from the highly trained pros at Team Nutz, starting as low as $159.99. We have the largest inventory, latest technology, and the very best practices to hook you up in time for the first temperature drop. Contact us today.

Tint & Sound…I Love You Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
John Lennon shook up British aristocracy with his 1965 psychedelic Phantom V Rolls Royce, which is now being featured at Bonhams auction house in London, along with seven other notable RRs to celebrate the brand’s 92nd year.
According to Rolling Stone, the most unusual feature was the one-way passenger windows made of darkened Triplex Deeplight glass to shield riders from any gawking. Lennon admitted that “If it’s daylight when you’re coming in, it’s still dark inside the car – you just shut all the windows and you’re still in the club.” The icon of rock also enjoyed on-demand music from a state of the art Philips Auto-Mignon AG2101 “floating” record player with a suspension system that prevented the needle from jumping when the car was in use.
Put Sunscreen on Your Car
Window tint film reduces a car’s interior heat by 60 percent and protects its interior from the damaging rays of the sun. Most important, it protects your car’s occupants by blocking 99% of UV rays which can cause skin cancer. It also deters theft, making it hard for would-be crooks to see inside the vehicle. Film can also be applied to SUVs, vans, RVs, and boats. In Pennsylvania on passenger vehicles, tinting is permitted only along the top five inches of the windshield. Side and rear windows may not be covered or treated with tinting that allows a light transmittance of less than 35%. All windows except the rear window must contain two-way glass. Reflective or mirrored material is not permitted on any vehicle windows. All vehicles with window tint film must have dual side-view mirrors.
Don’t forget your home or office. During the warm months, window tint films reduce the solar heat gain up to 80 percent at the glass, especially on east- and west-facing windows, keeping your house or office cool and minimizing summer utility bills. Window tint films also eliminate the chance that your furnishings, window coverings and paintings will fade or discolor from sun damage by blocking up to 99 percent of UV rays. Decorative window tint films in reflective, etched and frosted patterns increase your privacy with all of the energy-saving benefits.
Yes, you can do it yourself but professional window tint installers, like T.N. Security, use of experienced hand cutting to ensure the right fit, professional-grade materials, and tools that don’t result in streaks and bubbles. What’s more, T.N. Security offers a lifetime guarantee.
