Extreme Audio in Midlothian and Mechanicsville can upgrade your vehicle with heated seats. That’s right: If your car, truck or SUV didn’t come with seat heaters, we can install premium-quality, thermostatically controlled heating elements to help take the chill off those cold winter mornings. Let’s look at how seat heater systems work.
Our Heated Seats Kit
Our seat heater kits come with a control switch, a wiring harness and heating pads for the bottom and back seat cushions. The pads can be trimmed to fit most applications, as long as the leather or upholstery can be removed from the foam cushion. The pads are secured in place with extremely high-strength, two-sided adhesive strips to ensure they never move. Once installed, other than the feeling of warmth, you’ll never know they are there.
We can install a system in the driver’s seat or both front seats. If you want your rear seat passengers to be cozy and warm, we can install seat heaters for them as well.
Almost every kit we install includes a three-position mechanical control switch. Our team will work with you to choose a mounting location for the switch that is easily accessible. The switch has high- and low-heat positions, as well as an off position.
Because our systems use mechanical switches, the system starts to warm up as soon as you turn on the ignition. If we have installed a Compustar remote car starter in your vehicle, we can activate the heating system automatically based on the inside temperature of your vehicle. This works the same way as we can automatically activate the rear window defroster.
Our installation technicians are meticulous about how they install heated seats. We ensure that your upholstery is in perfect alignment and all trim and accent pieces are back in their original locations.
With our expertise in automotive electrical systems, we know where to source power for the heating elements to ensure maximum performance with no detrimental impact on your vehicle’s electrical system. We solder every electrical connection to ensure maximum conductivity; then we protect each joint with premium vinyl electrical tape. Finally, we bundle all the wiring and wrapped it in automotive-grade Tesa cloth tape to prevent buzzes and rattles as you drive down the road.
