Keeping Your Car Cool
As we move into summer, it can be very annoying to go to your car and find it is so hot you can barely hold the wheel! After all, when you go to your car to find it like this, you usually end up stuck sitting in your car with the air conditioner running for ten minutes before you can drive - or worse, you end up looking silly as you take an extra T-shirt and wrap it around your wheel in order to be able to 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, most of these tips are simple - but if you remember to do them, the combined effects will leave you with a much cooler car. The most obvious of all these tips is also the most simple: park your car in the shade whenever you can! After all - more than even the heat outside - it is the sun that makes your car so hot. And if you are parking somewhere where you will be for a while, do not worry so much about having your car in the shade when you park as having your car in a place where it will be in the shade when you return! Another reason why your car ends up getting so hot during the summer is because it becomes like a box, inside of which heat gets trapped. When you park your car on a hot day, you should always leave your windows cracked just a little bit. Not only will this prevent your car from heating up so much, but it will also protect your windshield from cracking due to excessive heat built up inside your car. 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!
