Extend the Life of Your Hybrid Battery with Regular Fan Cleaning

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are a great option for those who are looking for a vehicle that is both fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly. However, like any other vehicle, HEVs require maintenance to ensure they operate at their optimal performance. One important maintenance task that is often overlooked is cleaning the fan on the hybrid battery.

The importance of cleaning the fan

The fan on the hybrid battery is responsible for keeping the battery cool, which is crucial for the performance and longevity of the battery. Over time, dirt, debris, and other contaminants can accumulate on the fan blades, which can reduce its effectiveness in cooling the battery. This can result in reduced battery life and potentially trigger premature replacement of the battery. Therefore, it is important to regularly clean the fan on the hybrid battery to keep it running smoothly.

Not all mechanics know about cleaning the fan, so we suggest you ask them to do this next time they service your hybrid. It's neither difficult, nor time-consuming, but it can help you extend the life of your battery.
