We are installing a lot of remote car starters here at Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security now that the weather is cold. We offer several options with our Compustar remote starters – you can add security features, and we can activate functions like your rear window defroster or heated seats automatically. If your vehicle doesn’t already have heated seats, then we offer the Metra IBHS1 seat heaters to solve that.
Metra IBHS1 Carbon Fiber Seat Kits
We can install aftermarket seat heaters in most vehicles. We use the IBHS1 seat heater kits from Metra. Each kit includes a pair of 9×18-inch heating pads, an illuminated three-position switch and a wiring harness. The heating elements use flexible carbon fiber threads to allow the pads to conform to the seat cushion perfectly. The pads are thick enough to be undetectable once installed.
Illuminated Control Switch
Each seat heating kit has an illuminated two-position control switch. The mechanical switch has high, low and off positions with an LED that illuminates when the system is on. The beauty of a mechanical switch is that you can leave it turned on when you get out of your car and when you remote start the car, the seats start to warm up right away.
Fast Warm-up Time
Each heating pad is rated to produce about 25 watts of heat. The pads have a built-in thermostat that keeps the temperature between 115 and 135 degrees. This power level allows the seat heater kit to warm up quickly.
Quality Perfectionist Installation
To properly install a seat heating kit, we remove the seats from your vehicle and carefully disassemble them on our bench. Then we remove the upholstery and secure the heating pad in place. We solder every electrical connection in the vehicle to ensure maximum reliability and conductivity. We protect and conceal the wiring with Tesa cloth tape. Once we have installed the heating elements in your seat and reassembled it, you can’t even tell we worked on it.
