Planning your next family vacation? Let us run a battery check at AutoFair Ford in Manchester, New Hampshire! There are a number of things that can shorten the life of a battery. The Main thing that significantly reduces the lifespan of a battery are environmental conditions like heat and humidity. If your vehicle is equipped with the more traditional type of battery rather than a dry cell, it's a good idea to check the level of the water in your battery at least once a month -- more often in the summer months or in warmer climates. Your battery is most likely to fail in the summer months.
A battery that is constantly exposed to mild temperatures should last about six years. Keep in mind that extreme heat and humidity will significantly reduce the life of your battery. Your battery should last for almost the entire time of the expiration date stamped on the batter in the cooler New Hampshire weather.
If you're planning any long haul this summer, it's a good idea to get your battery checked to ensure it's being properly charged by your alternator. If your battery is going bad, it will no longer be able to hold a charge or receive a significant enough charge from a properly operating alternator. Whether it's a loose or worn belt or something more serious like an alternator replacement we've got your back!
