While summer is fun, it also brings sweltering heat that can be really uncomfortable, especially when you drive. But don’t worry: here are three ideas to keep your car cool this summer.
Use Sun Shades
As we mentioned in our previous post, parking in the shade is the ideal option during summer. However, finding a spot in the shade can be hard during the hot season. A cost-effective way to solve this problem is to get a sunshade, a reflective shield you place on your dashboard to block sunlight from coming in through your car’s windshield.
Use a Cover for the Steering Wheel
There are few sensations as frustrating as holding a scalding-hot steering wheel during summer. Fortunately, avoiding this inconvenience is easy: all you have to do is to purchase and install a cover for your steering wheel. And while you are at it you may also consider getting a dash cover, which will also protect your dashboard from the effects of the sunrays.
If you can afford to spend a couple of tens of dollars, cooling cushions are a smart investment that can really boost your comfort this summer. A cooling cushion is a seat cover that helps you stay cool even in the scorching summer heat. These cushions work either with cooling gel or with a built-in fan that circulates air throughout hundreds of holes in the seat.
