If you’ve ever gotten into your car in the heat of the summer, the uncomfortable temperature is noticeable right when you open the door. Reducing the heat trapped inside your vehicle is beneficial from a comfort perspective, but also to keep your vehicle operating properly. With all the electronics inside your vehicle, extreme temperatures could damage them over time. Anything you can do to reduce the temperature will be beneficial and here are some tips to consider.
Get Your Windows Tinted
Tinted windows are very helpful in blocking some of the intense sunlight that heats your vehicle. The one thing to keep in mind is dark tinted windows aren’t legal in New Jersey, so you’ll need to know what is allowed and get the maximum tint possible while remaining within the legal limits. You will still pass a state inspection with tinted windows, but you will be subject to receiving a ticket if a police officer pulls you over for having too dark of windows.
Install A Remote Starter
A remote starter in your vehicle is a great way to ensure you hop into a comfortable vehicle every time. You can start the vehicle a few minutes before you’re ready to get in and it will have plenty of time to cool down the interior in the summer or warm it up in the winter. It’s a convenient feature to have and it can be installed in most vehicles.
Other Tips To Keep Your Vehicle Cool This Summer
Small things you can do on any trip you take that won’t cost you any money include:
- Parking in the shade
- Parking in covered garages
- Put a window visor in your windshield
- Crack your windows slightly
You could also consider purchasing visors to put at the top of your windows so the rain won’t enter when you crack them slightly. These small steps can go a long way in reducing the heat inside your vehicle significantly and extending the life of your vehicle at the same time.
