Hot Weather Is Draining | New Orleans Auto Care

When you need help with your car battery, call on the New Orleans auto care and battery specialists at Twin Tire.

The weather in New Orleans has been miserably hot and it's expected to be even hotter. The forecast calls for a 'dangerous' heat wave today that runs into next week. The heat is energy draining. It's just too hot to move.

Your car may also succumb to the heat and refuse to move. In your car's case, it's because its battery is drained. Yes, although many people don't know it, hot weather is hard on batteries. As AAA says, "Battery problems don’t always occur in the winter. In fact, summer heat can have a more negative impact on your battery than freezing winter temperatures."

AAA adds, "Heat and vibration are a battery’s worst enemies, leading to internal breakdown and eventual failure. While you can’t do much about the heat, you can make sure your battery is securely mounted to minimize vibration. Another potential problem is faster evaporation of battery fluid, which leads to corrosion on terminals and connections. Clean any corrosive buildup from battery terminals and cable clamps, and ensure the clamps are tight enough that they will not move. If a battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to have it tested by a trained technician to determine how much longer it will last."
