Mechanic Mondays! - Batteries
The average life of a battery in Alberta is five years. Here in Alberta we get some extreme temperature and weather changes that can severely reduce the life of a battery. You can help extend the life of your battery by limiting short drives, using your vehicle’s block heater in cold weather, having your starting and charging systems tested every oil change and by disconnecting your battery when your vehicle is going to be parked for over 5-7days.
