Tips For Keeping Your Car Cool
With the weather starting to heat up as summer approaches, it can be annoying when you go to your car and find that it is so hot you can hardly hold the wheel! Whenever this happens, after all, you end up either sitting there for 10 minutes until the air conditioning cools things off, or you end up looking silly - putting a T-shirt over your steering wheel just so you can touch it! A better approach than either of these is to learn a few simple tips that can help your car to not become nearly as hot as it sometimes wants to during the summer. Of course, none of these tips are complicated - but you will have a much cooler car if you do all of them and combine their effects. The most obvious of these tips, of course, is to park your car in the shade whenever this is possible. After all - more than even the heat outside - it is the sun that makes your car so hot. And if you will be parked somewhere for a while, try to position your car so it will be in the shade during the time before you return to your car, rather than during the time right after you have left it! Another reason why your car gets so hot in the summertime is because your car captures the heat, acting like a box that traps it in. When you park your car on a hot day, you should always leave your windows cracked just a little bit. In addition to preventing your car from getting so hot, this will also help to protect your windshield from cracking due to the built up heat. Finally, you should get window shades if you either have a really dark car or live in a place where the weather in the summer gets really bad. The Basix Magic Jumbo Sunshade is a great option for your windshield - and it is an inexpensive way to keep your car cool! You will save money on air conditioning when you follow these simple tips - and what's more, you will save yourself a lot of discomfort!
