1. Use Sunshades/Window Visors

One method that has been tested and proven to be a sure way of keeping your car cool despite the high temperatures during summer is to use sunshades or window visors. Putting up sunshades or window visors every time you leave your car under the sun, even if only for a few minutes, can make a huge difference with your car’s interior temperature.

2. Park in the Shade

The easiest way to help keep your car cool during the summer is by parking it under shade. The shade will help to keep both your car’s exterior and interior cool. However, on a extremely hot days, you’ll also need to use other methods to ensure a more comfortable drive.

3. Keep Windows Slightly Open

If you plan to leave your car for only a few minutes, keeping your windows slightly open can help you keep your car cool under the hot sun. Open car windows will allow air circulation, helping to ensure the hot air escapes from inside your car. However, if you plan to leave your windows open, make sure you only leave a small opening and are not far from your car so you can monitor it for security.

4. Have Your Car’s Air Conditioner Serviced

Avoid simmering in the hot summer heat by keeping your car’s air conditioner serviced regularly. Having your car’s air conditioner cleaned and maintained before and during summer can help ensure a cool, comfortable ride all summer long.
