With the winter months beginning
to creep in, now is the time to ensure that your car heater is working
properly. You don’t want to be shivering in your car during long journeys -
it’ll make those early get-ups for work that much harder. That’s why our team
at Zunsport have created this blog post on what to do if your car heaters
suddenly stop working and how to stop them from breaking again in the future.
What Should You Do If Your Car Heaters Stop Working?
If your car heaters stop working, you should check as to whether the grilles are clogged as this is one of the most common culprits. Over time, radiators can become full of dirt and grime from normal wear and use which can inevitably stop airflow from getting out, meaning that it doesn’t work. If this happens there are a variety of tools that you can use to shift it. For example, you can run heavy-duty cleaning solutions over the top of the radiator (but do this only when the engine is cool), or you can use a little brush to sweep out the little bits of debris. However, these are short term solutions and there’s nothing that they can do to prevent your car radiators from becoming clogged again in the future.
How To Stop Your Car Heaters From Breaking Again
If you’re looking for a longer-term solution to stop your car heater from breaking again, it’s worth thinking about replacing your radiator grille. At Zunsport, our radiator grilles are specially designed to reduce the amount of dirt interfering with your system, keeping systems clean and looking brand new. We do this by creating our grilles from stainless steel with a choice of a steel finish or a black nylon finish. This material is then interwoven with rounded wires that are packed together in a way that makes it harder for dirt and dust to penetrate.
Incidentally, our grilles also allow for smoother airflow through the apertures to help reduce the possibility of the radiator overheating, stopping breakages caused by the heater valve sticking. However, this practicality doesn’t compromise on style as each grille makes for a sleek and modern addition to any make and model car.
