“You can cool off in your car without air conditioning by letting the heat out, keeping the heat out, and dressing appropriately. But yowza—just thinking about this topic makes us sweat.
To keep your car cool in the summer heat in Arizona, try out these tips:
- Park in the shade whenever possible.
- Tint your windows.
- Roll down your windows.
- Get a small fan to plug into the cigarette lighter.
- Wear light clothes.
Your best option is to make an appointment to get your air conditioning fixed. Oftentimes, your extended warranty will cover this, so you shouldn’t have to worry about paying out of pocket.
