Keeping Your Vehicle Cool in the Summer Heat

Sun shades and sun visors play a big role in protecting your vehicle’s interior and keeping it cool in the hot summer months. A sun shade can actually lower the internal temperature of your car up to 40 degrees! This can make a big difference and potentially save you from getting a burn from a hot metal service like your seatbelt. They can be used for the front window as well as side windows to block the sun and damaging UV rays from the eyes and skin of your passengers. The sun can wreak havoc on your vehicle’s interior and cause fading and damage to the console, dashboard, and upholstery, not to mention put cracks in your steering wheel. There are many varieties of sun shades and you are sure to find one that will fit your style and personality. They are sold at major department stores or you can order one directly from the dealership that is made specifically to fit the make and model of your vehicle. Investing in one with a reflective service will be the most efficient in blocking the sun’s rays from your vehicle’s interior. Some other quick tips that will help keep your vehicle cool and protected are:

  • Invest in getting the windows tinted.
  • Spend a little extra time to seek out shaded parking spots.
  • Crack the windows for additional ventilation that can help prevent sweltering car temperatures.
  • Cover the dashboard and steering wheel to protect the interior and prevent a potential burn.
