Whether it’s the cold weather or you left your lights on, batteries can die. Give us a call and let the professionals boost your battery to life.
Have you ever experienced the zap of 12 volts surging through your body in a split second? We hope not! Let’s keep it that way. Call the Ottawa Towing Company and let our certified technicians provide a quick and safe battery boost with the proper equipment.
Sure, you can ask a friend for a boost if you have cables but did you know that the car boosting you can get transient spikes from your car while it’s trying to start? Any battery or alternator issues from your car can be transmitted to the boosting car. Don’t get stuck fixing your car and your friends too. Some things to consider before boosting your own car:
– Car battery acid can leak out of the battery and burn your skin.
– If a flame or spark is brought too close to the car battery, hydrogen gas from the battery can explode, splashing battery fragments and acid all over your skin.
– Sparks (arcing) between a car battery terminal and other metal parts can cause the metal to get hot enough to burn you.
– If a car battery is short-circuited by a cable, the cable can heat up enough to catch fire.
Be safe. Give the professionals at the Ottawa Towing Company a call and we’ll assure your battery boost is done properly.
