ROCHESTER, Minn. - In these brutally cold temperatures, it can seem the car takes too long to get warm.

According to Consumer Reports, here are some tips on the car heater:

- Starting to drive will help the engine warm up, and ultimately help the car heat up. 
- Putting the fan on 'high' will not make the air turn warm quicker. 
- Keeping the A/C button on will help keep the windows from fogging up. 
- Using recirculation mode can actually make windows fog faster if it's a full car.
