Tips to Keep Your Car Cool in the Summertime

Want to learn how to keep your car cool in summer? Follow these tips:

  • Park in the Shade: While it may seem obvious, we often forget to take a few extra moments to find a good parking spot. Find space in a shaded area to keep your car at a comfortable temperature.
  • Purchase a Sunshade or Window Visors: Sometimes, finding a parking spot with adequate shade is impossible. If you upgrade with a sunshade, you can keep the heat out regardless of where you park!
  • Park in a Covered Area: Whenever possible, keep your vehicle parked in a garage. This will help regulate the temperature and also prevent sun bleaching to your interior.
  • Cover the Steering Wheel & Dashboard: Oftentimes, the worst part of getting into a hot car is grabbing the steering wheel. Cover your dash and steering wheel to prevent that burning sensation when it’s time to drive!
  • Crack Open the Windows: Cracking your windows is a great way to let hot air escape from your car while you’re away. However, you want to be careful not to open the windows too far and invite theft.
  • Protect the Leather Surfaces: Direct sunlight can damage leather and make it unbearably hot. Cover your leather surfaces when parking in the summer.
  • Let Your Car Cool Before Driving: Before driving off, give your car a few minutes to cool down. Open the doors and let the AC push some of the hot air out of your vehicle.
