Did you know that Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security can install aftermarket heated seat elements in your vehicle? Seat heating elements are popular upgrades to accompany installing a remote starter. The heating elements start to work as soon as the ignition is on, making your vehicle just that much more comfortable. Let’s check out some of the ins and outs of heated seats.
OEM-quality Heated Seats
When an automobile manufacturer chooses to include heated seats in a vehicle, they use a thin cloth heating element pad between the foam cushion and the leather or cloth seating surface. Aftermarket heating elements are the same. In fact, the factories that manufacture OEM seat heating elements make the aftermarket units we sell and install.
A seat heating kit from us includes two heating pads, a control switch and a power harness. The seats heat up to between 115 and 135 degrees F. The carbon thread construction ensures even heat distribution for maximum comfort. A built-in thermostat ensures safe operation at all times.
A Perfectionist Installation
For a seat heating upgrade, we install pads in the bottom and back of most seats. The installation procedure varies slightly from vehicle to vehicle and depends on the seat surface and style of the seat. In most cases, we carefully remove the seats from the vehicle, disassemble any plastic trim and remove the upholstery. The new heating elements adhere to the factory foam with high-strength adhesives that guarantee they will never shift. We reassemble the seats and ensure they look the same as they did before we upgraded them. In most cases, you can’t tell we ever worked on them (yes, we will vacuum up the cookie crumbs).
We give the wiring for the seat heating elements and the control switch the same attention to detail as our award-winning entertainment system and remote car starter installations. We protect all the electrical connections with Tesa cloth tape, and we always solder our wiring for maximum current flow and reliability.
If you are interested in having seat heaters installed in your vehicle, drop by Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security. One of our installation technicians will inspect your vehicle before we quote on the project. We do a thorough investigation. Some automobile manufacturers glue the upholstery to the foam, making it difficult or impossible to separate them. Many passenger seat bottoms have occupant detection systems that control operation of the passenger side airbag. We determine how sensitive those sensors are. Cosmetic accents also can affect our ability to install the seat heating pads properly.
