Keep Your Car Cool During the Summer: 5 Tips to Beat the Heat

To most people, summer means spontaneous trips to the beach and long roadtrips to inviting destinations. What most people don’t think of is how dangerously hot the interior of their car can get. During the months of June and September the average temperature can range from 81.1 degrees Fahrenheit (27.3 degrees Celsius) to a low of 52.3 °F (11.3 °C) depending on the state. This means dealing with temperatures that can heat up the car’s interior in dangerous levels. When hot air gets trapped inside a locked vehicle the temperature inside is exceedingly hotter as compared to the temperature outside. Do not leave children or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Here’s a few tips on how to quickly cool your car:

1. Open the doors and windows – since all the hot air gets trapped inside the vehicle. By opening all windows and doors will let the hot air out and get the cooler air get in. This can speed up by turning the air-conditioning on.

2. Turn the A/C up – blast the car with cold air by turning a/c to the max to push out the heat.

3. Fanning the door – this by far is the fastest as it immediately releases hot air and quickly cools it down. To do this you just need to rapidly push the door toward the car, stopping short of actually closing. Repeat several times until you feel that the interior is cooler.

4. Park in the shade – By parking in shaded areas and using windshield sunscreen, these will help in ensuring the car doesn’t heat very much.

5. Tint your windows – Getting your car’s windows tinted will not only help keep your car cool but also protect your car’s interior. Plus, it makes your car look snazzy.
