It also acts as a defogger, heating and defrosting the wiper park area, decreasing the level of condensation on your windshield, and improving visibility. Installing a heated wiper park area will give you better control when driving in inclement weather and will enhance your safety and the safety of other vehicles on the road. At Auto Glass Solutions, our experienced auto technicians specialize in installing, repairing, and replacing heated wiper park areas in Edmonton & Leduc, AB.

Heated Wiper Park Service in Edmonton & Leduc, AB

What Is a Heated Wiper Park Area?

The heated wiper park area automatically heats and defrosts the wiper park area on your windshield. This keeps the windshield and wiper blades free from ice and snow. It also increases visibility when you are driving in rain, snow, ice, and fog. You can turn the system on by activating your vehicle’s rear defrost controls. The system will also automatically turn on if it senses outdoor temperatures below 8 degrees Celsius.

How Does a Heated Wiper Park Area Work?

A heated wiper park area uses heating elements embedded into the front and/or rear windshield glass, depending on whether you have front and rear windshield wipers. The sensors are installed near the bottom of the glass, where the windshield wipers are ‘parked’ when not in use. The heating elements warm the glass to reduce the buildup of ice, frost, and snow on your windshield wiper blades. They also defrost and defog the bottom of your windshield glass.

When & Why Do You Need a Heated Wiper Park Area?

Using a heated wiper park area in cold climates can significantly improve your visibility while driving. The system also improves the performance of the vehicle’s windshield wipers and reduces weather-related wear and tear on the wiper blades and arms. Snow and ice can be heavy and will eventually put a lot of stress and strain on your wiper arms. A heated windshield will reduce that strain and allow your wipers to operate safely and efficiently with reduced risk of needing windshield wiper replacement. If you regularly drive in wet, snowy, or icy conditions, installing a heated wiper park area can enhance your safety and reduce your risk of a weather-related accident. You will be able to focus on the road more intently if you aren’t worried about how well your windshield wipers are working or whether your windshield is foggy.

What Is the Importance of the Heated Wiper Park Area?

Your vehicle’s heated wiper park area keeps the bottom of your windshield, where the windshield wipers rest, clear from ice and snow. It also defogs and defrosts that portion of the windshield and allows the windshield wipers to remain free of snow and ice build-up so that they function more effectively. A heated wiper park area can actually increase the lifespan of your windshield wipers because they won’t experience as much wear and tear when you use them in sleet or snow.

Our Heated Glass Wiper Park Area Services

Our auto technicians can install heated wiper park areas on almost any type of vehicle. We can inspect your vehicle and evaluate its age, condition, and electrical components to determine if it can support the installation of heating elements. In most cases, we will need to install a new windshield, as most vehicles do not support retrofitting heating elements in the windshield glass, and doing so could threaten the structural integrity of the windshield. In addition to installing heating elements or a heated wiper park area, we also offer diagnostic testing, maintenance, and repairs of existing heating elements. We can also access and repair major and minor windshield damage. If your windshield is damaged, any heating elements installed are also likely damaged. If the heating elements are scratched or chipped, the electrical current is interrupted, and the windshield wiper park area will not heat as effectively or at all. The sooner you visit us for windshield repair or windshield replacement, the safer you will be on the road.
