Is it Safe to Use Seat Covers on Your Car’s Heated Seats?
Yes, it is safe to use covers on your warm and comfy heated seats because these heated seats have a thermostat or timer that switches when the temperature reaches an opium high value and switches it on again when the seat gets cold; in this way, the temperature never rises to the point that it can damage the cover or the person sitting on the seat.
Do Seat Covers Affect the Working of the Seat Heating Function?
Well, yes and no; basically, it depends on the material and thickness of the cover. For example, a thick multiple-layer sheepskin cover will get heated slowly, and the warmth will reach the passenger after a delay. In contrast, a single-layer mesh cover will get heated instantly. Another unfortunate point you may encounter is a loss of a degree or two of warmth due to the cover, which you won’t even notice. So, besides a delay in warmth, the seat cover doesn’t affect the seat heating mechanism.
In extreme winters, it is best to remove covers from the seat to save each degree of warmth and avoid the delay of transfer of heat from the seat to the passenger. Well, removing cover in winter for better results depends from person to person, so follow your heart.
Can I Use Any Seat Cover on Heated Seats?
Well, yes, you can use any quality and material seat covers for heated seats because all covers are designed to face the hot sun in the summer ( while you park and leave the car in the sun for hours ), so facing a little warth of seat heating mechanism, which is between 30° ~ 45° Celcius, is no big deal for covers.
However, the heating mechanism runs on electricity, and in case of any failure, the seats may catch fire, so it is best to use a Fire-resistant seat cover for heated seats, which don’t get burnt easily and may help save your or/and your family’s life.
