How Summer Heat Drains Your Battery

Most associate winter with batteries that eventually die. But many argue summer heat can put more stress on your battery than winter. Extreme temperatures put more stress on a battery as the fluids evaporate faster than winter.

Your battery is made up of a precise chemical mixture. When the heat rises, those chemicals begin to change. As the battery fluid begins to evaporate with excessive heat, your battery gets weaker at a very fast rate. It is estimated that above 70 degrees, every 15 degrees begins to weaken your battery more as the fluid evaporates at a faster rate. One of the solutions to this is to keep your car parked in a garage if possible.

Testing your vehicle before any seasonal change will assure you have a strong battery as the temperatures skyrocket. Bring your car by our dealership for an inspection of your battery before the seasons turn harsh.
