Wind chill only applies to a mass, and how long it's subjected to a
temperature. Residual heat can be stored for a given time, especially if it
enclosed or insulated.
Just because the nights low is zero, does not mean the mass will be at
No remote starter in this day and age? Why go out in the cold?
Just use remote starter. You can program it any way you want.
Mine has temp. sensor, it can start and run for 5 mins.(adjustable)
at certain temp. Or I can program it to run every 5 hours all night
for an example. You can do it with your smart phone as well.
My scheduled activity is practicing in the band twice a week.
During this season is hectic playing here and there all over.
From now and then I do piece work on T&L basis to keep the brain
from getting too rusty.
It's a good place and my wife does volunteer work there too,
a lot more than I do.
It gets a lot of people who have been written off by society ,
back on their feet again.
Many end up getting enrolled in college and get jobs...
and as the executive director says, "and pay taxes" !
But what about days there is no snow? It is a big deal then. When I
park my car at night I also put the heated seat to the "on" position.
Push a button and when I go out the car is warm, or at least nearly so.
Starts to cool down after being parked in the sun too!
On the days when I don't have to shovel I still need to take the trash
out and my car is parked right next to the container...it is really not
a big deal.
Though it might be when I get to be quite elderly, per my wife, we will
be out of Wisconsin by then.
Not everyone can afford a remote starter. They are still considered
somewhat of a luxury, even "in this day and age."
My son bought a used car. No remote starter. He planned on getting one
before winter. He decided new tires were a much better idea. Smart kid.
I install them myself. This car came with one but the range was bad. I
replaced with another after market one after confirming with dealer it
won't void warranty. They are modular now, very easy to deal with.
I installed one 15 years ago. A pain fooling with wiring. I'll never
install another. On the starter install had one that on a warm or cold day,
you could leave your car running while running into store. It was probably
the best uni at the time. It was a gift. I also wired up the lights so you
could see the vehicle, and was also a thieve deterrent, going toward your
A luxury I don't need.
First off I am very much used to the cold Wisconsin winters and to just
go out an start the car is no big deal.
I live very modestly on a relatively small amount of money,,,but because
I don't buy things I don't need I feel in a way that I am pretty well off.
I take my wife to NY once a year and we have a blast. Things like that
are more important than having a car starter etc.
