Never Suffer from A Hot, Stuffy Car Again
On a warm day the inside of the car can feel like 110 degrees. People can enjoy spending time outdoors during the summer months, but when it comes to getting inside a hot and humid car, no one is interested.
From the inside feeling like an oven to taking what feels like forever to cool down to a comfortable temperature, driving around in the summer sun can be enjoyable one minute to frustrating and scorching the next.
Here are some simple steps to take in to maintain a cooler car on those high temperature days:
The car windows of a car act like a greenhouse. They keep the heat and sunlight inside, which brings the interior up to eye-watering degrees on a hot day. Reduce the amount of heat entering through your windows by:
- Sun Shade: A reliable way to keep the temperature lower is to block the direct rays coming through the window with a sun shade over the windshield.
- Shaded Parking: Whether it is under the shade of a tree or in a garage, parking out of direct sunlight will keep your car cooler, along with the steering wheel and gear box which can heat up quickly and be unbearable to touch.
- Tinted Windows: Although this can be costly, it does block more sunlight out. Be sure to check your state’s laws to know restrictions on which windows you can tint.
Those with leather interior will understand the unbearable heat of the seats after the car sitting in the sun. The best way to avoid this is to cover the leather seats, either with a towel, custom covers, or cooling gel pads. This adds insulation between you and the hot seat, making it manageable.
If your cooling system takes a while to get going in your car, you can turn on the cool air as soon as you start the engine whilst cracking the windows open slightly. The hot air will rise to the top and out of the windows, while the air conditioning system kicks in.
