"Business is pretty good right now," said Weber.

With weather like it is outside, its nice to stay toasty warm inside while your car starts out there. Its a convince people say they can't live with out.

"Yea I really want to have the warmth as much as I can get, so this is making due until I can move to Arizona or somewhere warm," said customer Angela Clausen.

  Even if you are use to Iowa temps, many say they still don't want to live with out it.

 "I grew up in the cold, I hunt in the cold, I am in the cold all the time. It is still a convince to have an automatic start on my truck," said customer Derek Leyen.

Its a convince and comfort that is worth the cost.
"We see more that people are just willing to spend the money to be comfortable. No one wants to go out and scrape their windows or get in a cold car after work," said Weber.

Several people also said it is a time saver for them.
