Product Comparison

Defroster

  • Does not work from a cold start.
  • Does not release stuck wipers.
  • Does not work efficiently until the car is fully warmed up.
  • Does not clear blocked or frozen nozzles.

The Heatshot Difference

  • Heatshot system heats fluid in seconds. Releases stuck wipers and clears blocked or frozen nozzles.

Heated Wiper Blades

  • Stops blades sticking or “chattering” in inclement weather.
  • Needs to be replaced frequently (and is very expensive).
  • Does not clean the windscreen, clear ice buildup on the windscreen, or unblock frozen nozzles.
  • Needs to be plugged into the vehicle cigarette lighter. Has a wire running from the cigarette lighter out the car window.

The Heatshot Difference

  • Heatshot frees stuck wipers and keeps the rubber softer for greater effectiveness (and longer life). Cleans windscreen, clears ice buildup, and unblocks nozzles. Operates at the touch of a button.

Heated Nozzle

  • Clears blocked nozzles.
  • Does not heat the fluid to remove ice/snow/frost from the windscreen.

The Heatshot Difference

  • Heatshot clears frozen nozzles with a shot of steam, then instantly heats the fluid to remove snow and frost from the windscreen in a minute or two.

Heated Washer Fluid Reservoir

  • Takes a long time to heat up the reservoir. Each time it heats up, some antifreeze evaporates from the fluid. Loss of antifreeze can result in the remaining fluid in the reservoir freezing solid.

The Heatshot Difference

  • Heatshot only heats the precise amount of fluid that is needed, on demand. Heatshot does not draw power from the engine’s heating system or radiator hoses.

Heated Windscreen

  • Melts snow and ice, but takes longer than heated fluid.
  • Costly to install and replace.
  • Does not clear frozen nozzles or wiper blades or clean the windscreen.

The Heatshot Difference

  • Heatshot melts snow and frost in seconds. Heatshot releases frozen nozzles and wiper blades and cleans windscreens all year round, in all weather conditions.

Heated Windscreen Scraper

    • Removes light ice and frost.
    • Can be used when car is in Park only.
    • Does not work efficiently until the car is fully warmed up.
    • Requires driver to stand outside in cold weather (scrapers are heated by being plugged into the car’s cigarette lighter).

The Heatshot Difference

      • Heatshot works in Park or Drive. It’s cold out there.

De-icing Fluid

      • Melts light ice or frost forming on the windscreen but does not eliminate scraping heavy frost or ice.
      • Takes a relatively long time and uses a large quantity of fluid; inefficient and expensive.
      • Contains harsh, dangerous chemicals that are harmful to the environment.
      • Does not free wiper blades.
      • Does not unblock nozzles effectively.

The Heatshot Difference

      • Heatshot uses heated fluid, which cleans and clears better than cold fluid. It works in all weather conditions removing even ice and frost, and Heatshot also quickly unblocks nozzles and releases wiper blades.
