Not everyone out there has the luxury of air-conditioned garages or instant cool air— or the ability to shift our body’s temperature like an iguana. Or shape-shift into iguana.
In any case, in this extreme summer heat, keeping your car cool in the blazing heat can quickly evolve into an art. Nobody wants to get burned this summer—stick to these tips from your local Car Repair Omaha to make the heat a bit more bearable this summer:
Park in the Shade
Sounds like a no brainer, right? Well, it’s a bit more complicated than you think. For starters, never underestimate your desire to get the closest parking spot—though a shady spot at the end of the lot may be available, it’s tempting to catch that spot a few feet from the door, in direct line of the sun. Your local Omaha NE Car Repair recommends you be mindful of this trap—an extra few feet of walking is a drop in the bucket compared to a car in the sun.
If you can’t find any shade, fighting the sun’s rays can be one heck of a battle. Your local Omaha Auto Mechanic recommends sunshades or window tinting. The benefits of these fairly cheap, simple solutions are priceless! They can make your car 60% cooler in the summer, not to mention the reduced chance of accidents and cracking/fading of your interior!
Your local Omaha Auto Repair also recommends having a wet rag handy on hot days. By simply wiping the hot surfaces of your car, the evaporation will take a lot of that splintering heat with hit.
A Few Extra Tips:
Don’t get burned by leather seats or hot metal seat belt buckles on summer days. Your local Omaha Car Service wants you to be safe!
