OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA hot car during the summer can be the absolute WORST! After a day at the beach or long work day, stepping into your car can be almost painful on a hot sunny day. The inside of your car can be around 20-30 degrees warmer then it is outside, so doing everything you can to keep it cooler is important.

Notice: During all times of the year, never leave children or pets in an unwatched car even if you follow these tips.

To stay a little cooler this summer, follow these tips to keep your car cool!

Park In The Shade: If possible, park your car in the shade, or in a parking garage, especially during the warmest times of the day.

Turn Your Car Around: While it isn’t always possible to park in the shade, you can try to turn your car around so most of the sunlight hits the back of your car. This will help your steering wheel or seat from getting too hot.

Cover Up The Windows: Window covers will ensure that sun doesn’t directly hit the seats of your car. It can make a difference and wont make your body sting when sitting down.

Window Tinting: Tinting your vehicles windows can be a really good way of keeping your car much cooler. Whether you are driving or your car is parked, this can be a big help.

Air Ventilation: To get some air flow through your car, crack at least two windows open. This will help with circulation. Just make sure you dont leave your windows so wide open that someone could break into your car.

Blast A/C: When all else fails, turn your Air Conditioner on full blast before you get in. Giving your car just a few minutes to cool down can make a huge difference.
