If you have to park your car in the hot sun today, many car owners can’t help but feel sorry for what their ‘second wife’ has to endure. Accordingly, when the outside temperature reaches 35 to 40 degrees Celsius, the car cabin can completely increase to 60 or 70 degrees Celsius.
This will put items such as: Fire extinguishers, lighters, cans of carbonated soft drinks, … all at risk of exploding because the heat increases the pressure of the liquids causing them to explode. Therefore, it is really necessary to protect the car in the hot weather.
How to reduce car heat?
Using the car door as a fan is one of the most popular ways to cool down the cabin. With this method, car users lower the window in the front passenger seat, then close and open the car door on the driver’s side 5-10 times.
In addition, in the hot season, car owners should be equipped with silver sunshades. After parking, use a sunshade to cover the front and rear windshields of the car… before leaving the car. Silver panels can prevent direct sunlight from entering the car, so the car does not have to absorb much heat.
Check and adjust the air conditioner properly
You should regularly check the air conditioner, if the cooling is poor, take the car to have this part serviced separately at some garages that specialize in this problem. And when parking for a long time in the sun, the driver should open the door for a while before entering, to let the hot air escape to neutralize the temperature outside; and then step in, turn on the air conditioner and adjust to the mode to get the outside air first and then when it’s cool enough, it will switch to get the inside air.
Check tires regularly to prevent explosion
Some drivers have pumped nitrogen gas for tires instead of air, because pure nitrogen does not contain water vapor, so it does not expand due to heat, avoiding the situation of tires increasing heat when operating at high speed in hot sun. .
However, do not inflate the tire too much and run at high speed continuously because it will cause great friction, which can easily lead to tire explosion.
How to protect car interior?
Use seat covers – Seat covers help prevent stains and scratches, and prevent sun damage. Placing a sunshade between the windshield and dashboard will help prevent direct sunlight from entering the vehicle, damaging the interior and heating the air inside the vehicle.
Note: Absolutely do not leave water bottles under the leather car seats in the sun
Plastic, or glass bottles are usually cylindrical in shape, containing water inside, forming a convex lens. When the sun shines on, the water bottle becomes a converging lens.
If the exposure time is long enough and the sunlight is strong enough, the rays of the sun focused at one point can burn interior surfaces such as upholstery or floor mats, etc.
