Keeping Your Car Cool in Summer | Helpful Tips

Looking to mitigate the effects of that summer heat beating down on your poor Boulder ride? Here’s some easy ways to achieve your goal of keeping cool in your automobile!

  • Parking in a shaded or covered area is a good way to keep the temperature in your car as low as possible. It’s probably the easiest way, too!
  • Can’t find a shaded area? Check out the sun visors and shade screens available at local department stores! You can find window shades of all shapes and sizes for the front, back, and even side windows!
  • Covering the steering wheel and dashboard will save your hands from touching hot vinyl material, which can warm up and retain some serious heat in direct sunlight!
  • Leaving your windows cracked is a surefire way to get some air flowing, thus reducing the temperature inside your vehicle!
  • This one applies specifically to those with leather interiors which can get very hot to the touch, and too much sun exposure can even fade the material. Cloth seat covers will protect your leather during the summer.
  • Investing in tinted windows is a smart way to keep your car cool in more ways than one! Just make sure your newly tinted windows meet federal and state requirements for transparency.
