On a day that is 45°C , the temperature in a vehicle can reach over 50°C because sunlight gets trapped inside. Not only are these temperatures harmful to the body with prolonged exposure, but they can provide unnecessary wear and tear on a vehicle. Fortunately, with the proper way for precautions there are many ways to keep a car cool in the summer sun.
1. Keeping the Car Cool While It’s Parked
One method that is somewhat handy and completely free is leaving the blankets on the seats while the car is not in use.
The blanket will be exposed, but the seat will be shielded from direct sunlight. Of course, the blankets will be hot when the driver and passengers return, but they can simply be tossed on the floor or into the trunk.
You have undoubtedly seen sunshades in the windows of cars - maybe with silly messages on them. You may even have one yourself.
A car sunshade is usually a piece of folded cardboard or fabric or other material that you put up against the inside of your windshield to keep the sun out. The best ones are the shiny reflective ones, but any of them make a huge difference.
