Cool car warm weatherSummer heat can be brutal, especially on auto glass. Before you know it, very hot temperatures will be the norm around the state, so it’s important to remember to take care of your auto glass as the temperatures continue to rise. Keep your car cool as much as you can to avoid cracks. 

Take a look at these tips to keep your car cool this spring and into the summer:

  1. Crack the windows (or use your sunroof) - This is an easy way to drop the temperature quickly inside your vehicle since a car interior can reach well over 100 degrees once it’s been sitting idle in the heat. You can also use your sunroof as a vent! Just watch out for those approaching spring showers. 

  2. Park in the shade - When you’re in a hurry, it’s often forgotten how quickly a sunny parking space can heat up your car. Choose to park in the shade or at least find a spot where the sun hits the rear window rather than the front windshield. 

  3. Use a sunshade - Cardboard options are very popular for placing inside the windshield, but you can also find fabric choices at most baby retailers. These also have the added benefit of preventing windshield cracks from the heat. 

  4. Tint your windows - Solar control window film is definitely a plus when things heat up outside. Make sure you stay within the legal limit, but, otherwise, enjoy the benefits of deflecting heat away from your car. 

  5. Cover your seats - Having blankets handy to toss on the seats, especially leather ones. really helps cut down on added heat. If you keep the blankets in the car at all times, you’ll have them ready to go during the warmer months.
