Beat the Summer Heat

Woman's Car Blown From Summer Heat

With summer steadily approaching, the temperatures in your car can be 20 to 30 degrees hotter than the actual air temperature, so here are some ways to keep your car from baking in the summer heat.

Use Sunshades

Investing in some sun shades will help keep your car much cooler. They prevent the sun from coming through the windows and windshield, which can keep your car much cooler.

Find the Shade

Parking in the shade will keep the sun from heating up your interior. When there’s no shade around, try to park your car in the direction that would keep the most sun from heating up your steering wheel and driver’s seat.

Window Tinting

If you are willing to modify your car, window tinting is a way to permanently keep your car cooler. Just be wary of your state’s regulations on how much tint you can have.

Use Remote Start

If you have a remote start system (like many Nissans do!), start your car before you get into it. You can also start your A/C system with many remote start key fobs, so blast that a few minutes before you get into your car.
