Here in Vero Beach, Florida, we know that the summer sun means business. Keeping your car cool is crucial when driving—not just for your comfort, but for your safety. Here are some easy tips to keep your car cool in the Florida heat.

  1. Use your AC. Make sure your AC is in fine working order (you can have it tested at Dependable Mitsubishi if something seems off), and use it when traveling in hot temperatures. If possible, turn on your AC a few minutes before getting into your car to cool it off.
  2. Park Smartly. Ward off heat by parking in the shade, whenever possible. If you’ll be away from your car for a few hours, anticipate where the shade will be in the final hour before returning to your car. If you can, park your car so that most of the sunlight will hit the rear of your car, so that the steering wheel won’t be hot to the touch.
  3. Invest in Window Shades. Buy window shades to suction to your windows, as well as a big reflective one for your windshield.
  4. Leave Windows Cracked. If you are in an area where you feel comfortable and rain is not on the menu, consider cracking your windows just a touch. Doing so will allow some air to circulate, though not much.
