Winter Is Coming - Why You Should Consider a Remote Start

Updated: Jun 10

Winter is coming, do you know where your car keys are? Well if you have a remote starter on your car and it is a cold winter morning, hopefully you know just where you left them. A remote start for your car or truck will bring you to salvation on those frigid New Orleans winter mornings. For over 25 years, our team at Mobile One Auto Sound has been installing everything from window tinting to car audio systems to countless accessories in between. As a mobile electronics and accessories provider with three locations throughout the greater New Orleans metro area, Mobile One Auto Sound is proud to offer affordable installation rates, financial assistance, satisfaction guarantee and a team of experienced professionals who have experience on everything vehicle related. With three convenient locations in Metairie, Gretna and Covington, Louisiana, we work to serve our community because our customers are our friends, our family and our neighbors. For that reason, we hope everyone in New Orleans knows how to find luxury in their everyday through their vehicle, including the ability to control the seasons with a remote starter and security system.


Using a remote start on a vehicle means installing a radio-controlled device to your engine starter that is controlled by either a smartphone app or a key fob. Depending on the level of the remote start determines the functionality of the system, meaning, some higher level starters integrate the ability to control the temperature of your vehicle before even entering the vehicle. That means on those cold Louisiana mornings you can start your car or truck and set the cab temperature to a balmy 80ºF before even leaving your home.

Beyond the climate control factors of a remote starter in the winter, starting your vehicle and allowing it to run to ‘warm up’ the engine is beneficial to the longevity of your vehicle’s operating health. Sometimes we find ourselves running late in the morning, racing to our vehicle and taking off down the road towards our destination. In the winter, this action can result in overstraining the engine and causing unnecessary stress on its moving parts. While the engine does not need long to warm up, a warm up is beneficial before accelerating down the road because it allows the thick oil to loosen up before running through the engine. However, cars these days are not like the vehicles of the 80s and 90s. After the mid-1990s, vehicles were manufactured with a fuel injection method of starting instead of the carburetor. This change means that having a modern day car left idling for a long time is no longer a necessity.


Have you ever been caught at an airport parking lot, in a blizzard, looking for your car buried in two feet of snow and ice? No, well it’s not too late. Instead of trudging up and down the aisles remote unlock in hand hitting the panic button in a sad, and it this point, freezing attempt to locate your vehicle, buy a remote start and security system. Believe us, it will save you time and pain in the future. Most remote start systems installed here at Mobile One Auto Sound are equipped with GPS systems which allow you to sync your vehicle with your phone. This allows you to monitor your vehicle’s location, use of vehicle, and enhance the security of your vehicle when parked.


You may be asking yourself, why would you get a remote starter installed by the team at Mobile One Auto Sound when Louisiana winters are on the tame side of the spectrum? New Orleans is a haven for people from the north to get away from the months of persistent and unrelenting winter weather, not a place that also sees feet upon feet of snow. So why install a remote starter? What about those summer months where the humidity and heat is close to unbearable? Remote starters are a fantastic investment because they can be used year round. Whether you are in the frozen tundra or the heat of the south, crank up your heat or your air conditioning so that your vehicle’s interior is the perfect temperature to start your day in comfort and seek relief from whatever the elements bring.


Getting a remote starter on your vehicle provides a sense of luxury and is an affordable upgrade to your vehicle. As an inexpensive investment, you will see return almost immediately. While each remote start system is different, many of the models we sell and install at Mobile One Auto Sound have the ability to lock, unlock, start your vehicle, pop the trunk, engage panic mode, valet mode, as well as flash the lights to easily locate your vehicle in a dark parking lot. And many of the starters come with a one-year limited warranty just in case something goes wrong.
