Open Your Door Or Windows:
Of course, don’t leave your entire window open but you can keep it open a little on both sides. Cross ventilation helps to cool down your car massively. If this is not something you wish to do, leave your door open for about 10 to 15 seconds before you get into your car, this will let the trapped hot air out of your car.
First of all your car battery should be up to date. A heated engine and high temperatures tend to weaken your car battery even faster. Replace the battery if it is more than 3 years old or just simply get it tested and keep up with its regular maintenance.
Use only trusted brand-named and approved tyres. Avoid using fittings that can be subpar and potentially hazardous. Regular expert tyre inspections are necessary, especially if you have any concerns. At least once a month, if possible, check the pressure on your tyres.
AC Unit In The Car:
To ensure that it can keep you cool even during the hottest part of the summer, you should have the air conditioning unit in your automobile tested and serviced each spring. Be careful to particularly get the refrigerant pressure checked because refrigerant leaks might impair the cooling capacity of your air conditioner.
Though leather seats are quite popular in the UAE, they absorb a LOT of heat. If you are someone who has leather seats on your car, get some different fabric covers for them. These fabric covers are even available for your steering wheel, they keep the surfaces cool during the heat.
