The Effects of Harsh and Extreme Weather on Your Car Battery

The harsh and extreme weather conditions will have a negative impact on your car battery over time, so it is important to understand what is happening under the hood.

When the temperatures stay freezing for long periods, the chemicals within the battery are turning solid too like the oil in the engine. If this occurs too long, the casing of the battery could expand, causing damage to the delicate components within. Once this happens, it is only a matter of time before the battery will fail.

If the weather is too hot, the excessive heat is going to have the opposite impact on the battery in the car. Now those chemicals start to evaporate, which reduces the composition of the battery and makes the rest of the system to have to work harder.
