After digging your car out of the snow after a long day at work, there’s nothing better than getting in and enjoying the heated cabin. Unless you’ve got a broken heater…then you’re probably still trying to scrape the ice and snow off while everyone else has left for the day. It’s a pain to deal with no heat in your car, and luckily, it’s usually an easy fix. Plus, going without heat on long car rides or commutes can be a hazard to your health and sanity during the long Minnesota winter.
Here’s a few common signs of heater issues and reasons why it might not be working:
- Your air vents are only blowing out cold air = it could mean you’re low on coolant.
- There isn’t any air blowing out = could be a sign that the heater controls are clogged due to build-up over time.
- Your thermostat gauge remains on C = the thermostat may be broken and can’t signal the heater to warm up.
- The engine is overheating or there’s an irregular odor = there could be an issue with the heater core.
Unfortunately, there are many other ways the heating in your vehicle can be compromised. It’s often a quick fix, though, so it’s in your best interest to have it checked out by our professionals.
