Can I Use Summer Wiper Blades Year-Round?

Windsheild wipers are one of many things we take for granted on our automobiles, but perhaps one of the most important, particularly during colder seasons and in areas where rain and snow is common. Having effective wiper blades ensures that your windshield stays clear every during the heaviest in rainstorms, allowing you to safely drive in these conditions. But how do you choose the right windshield wipers for your car? It comes down to the climate and season of your location.

We discussed summer and winter wiper blades in a previous blog post and it’s important to revisit this topic as autumn approaches. During the summer, many drivers opt for summer windshield wiper blades which are less expensive and made from rubber. However, rubber is advised against in particularly cold climates because the rubber can become brittle and less effective in freezing temperatures. If you live in a moderate climate where the temperature does not drop drastically into the winter, then rubber summer wiper blades can be used year-round. If you live in an area like the northeastern US where rain and snow is common, you should invest in winter wipers like Rain-X wipers which are designed with material that will not degrade in cold weather.

No matter what the weather is like outside, you should routinely inspect your wipers for wear and tear. As fall begins, keep leaves clear from your windshield so they do not snag in the wipers. Even the best windshield wipers will wear out over time, but you can extend the life of your windshield wipers by using high-quality windshield wiper fluid to keep them lubricated when cleaning your car’s windshield.

Keller-Heartt offers a variety of windshield wipers suitable for all automobiles and climates such as Rain-X wiper blades, and all the automobile supplies needed to ensure safe driving in any season. We also offer deals on bulk wiper blades for fleets to help keep operations costs down. We encourage you to routinely inspect your automobile, particularly as the seasons change, to make sure your car is equipped to handle anything the weather or road throws at you.
