How do you cool down a car in the summer?
What’s the best or fastest way to cool down my car in the summer? Sometimes I get in and the steering wheel is so hot it burns!
Hot cars can be a pain! Luckily, there are plenty of ways for you to cool off quickly. Here are some of the quickest, easiest ways to cool down your car in the summer heat:
- Roll down one of your front windows and swing your back doors back and forth a few times. This can help you push some stagnant hot air out of your car.
- Once you’re in your car, roll down your windows and turn your A/C on high. Once your car starts to cool down, you can roll up your windows and enjoy the A/C.
- Park in the shade or use a windshield screen to stop direct sunlight from heating your interior.
- Turn on your A/C before you get in the car, so it has time to cool off.
Hopefully, these tips will help you keep cool in the summer. If you’re still having trouble with the heat, consider shopping for products like car covers or sun reflectors that are meant to keep your car cool.
