5 Tips to Keep Your Car Cool in the Summer

Summer in Georgia means one thing... everything is HOT, HOT, HOT. The heat of summer can make this season unpleasant. Getting into a car that has been parked in the hot sun can make you feel as if you are being roasted alive. To help you stay cool we have come up with 5 tips to help keep you (and your car) cool this summer.


  1. Use a car sunshade - This method of keeping your car cool should be your go-to option to counteract hot interior temps throughout the summer. Put up a sunshade or window visor every time you exit your car for more than a few minutes. Keep it even cooler for long periods by putting a sunshade in your rear window as well.

  2. Cover your steering wheel with a towel - Even if you use a sunshade, it’s a good idea to cover your steering wheel with a small towel. This will help to keep the contact temperature of your steering wheel down.

  3. Park in a shady area - Whenever possible, park in a shady area. If you’re going to be somewhere for an extended period of time, it’s worth it to walk a bit farther in order to park in the shade. You’ll be happy to enter a not-so-hot car when you return from your day out.

  4. Leave windows cracked - While it’s not a good idea to leave your windows all the way open, it is a good idea to leave them slightly cracked. Check to be sure that you can’t fit your arm through the crack in your window. Even a small crack will promote ventilation and help to keep your car cool.

  5. Try parking in a garage - Whenever possible, park in a garage. Your car will be out of direct sunlight and will have the benefit of near-constant shade. Even a warm garage beats being parked in the sun all day.
