The Two Main Reasons Batteries Die in the Summer

Most people are excited when the weather warms up after a cold winter, but at some point in the summer, things can sometimes be too hot to handle. Extreme heat can be just as hard on car batteries as extreme cold, and these are two main reasons why.

First, the heat outside can lead to added battery heat, which can mean evaporating electrolytes. If you fail to pay attention to this, you can really hurt your battery to the point of it needing to be completely replaced. The second most likely reason for dead batteries in the summer is overcharging. When a battery is constantly overcharged, it will shorten its life and possibly damage it significantly.

Before either of these things happens to you, stop by our service center here at Ramey Ford Princeton located in Princeton, WV and get your car battery serviced, checked and replaced if needed.
