5 Tips To Keep Your Car Cool

Car Cool Hero

Leaving your car parked outside while you make an escape to an air-conditioned environment? Here are five tips to keep your car cooler while it’s waiting for you.

  • Park in the shade where possible. Or try parking with the sun towards the rear of your vehicle. That way there’s less direct sunlight on your front dash and seats.
  • Leave your windows open (about half an inch) to provide some venting for the trapped heat
  • Once you enter the vehicle, open your windows and turn up your A/C. Your air conditioner shouldn’t take very long to deliver that cold air. Once the cold air comes into the cabin, it’ll help circulate and move the hot air out.
  • Use windshield sunshades. Yes, lay those big silver shades across the inside of your windshield and keep them propped up with your car’s visors.
  • Consider tinting your windows. When done right, it blocks harmful UV rays which keeps the inside of your cooler. Remember to avoid using the pull-down sun shades that are affixed to the window with a suction cup. These can become flying objects during a collision and cause injury. Remember the young Delta, BC woman killed by her laptop?
