How are Batteries Affected by Extreme Temperatures?

At Herb Chambers Lincoln of Norwood, we want you to be as informed as possible when it comes to buying a new vehicle and maintaining it. Taking care of your battery is an important part of auto maintenance.

Your battery will generally last you several years before it needs to be replaced. Have you ever wondered why some batteries need to be charged frequently or go bad way before their time? Many things can affect the quality and lifespan of a battery, including extreme temperatures. It’s not uncommon for batteries to go dead in the cold winter months, however, more batteries actually quit in the hot summer months. It’s not the season so much as the extreme temperatures that can damage your battery.

Always try to keep your battery fully charged and keep your vehicle in a garage when the temps are extremely hot or cold. Stop at our Norwood, MA dealership with any battery-related questions you may have. We can advise you on battery care and assist in any other auto-related issues.
