How you can Cool Your vehicle Down Quickly

The interior of a parked car in Florida averages 150 degrees, according to researchers in the University of Central Florida.

“Every driver in Florida knows the intense heat that greats you as you open the car door on the hot day,” says Ellsworth Buck, Vice President of Insurance, Florida's largest independent car insurance agency. Not just is really a hot car terribly uncomfortable, but cooling your car down quickly can keep you from looking like a warm mess before you get to your destination.

Engineers at Consumer Reports found the best way for cooling off a warm car as soon as possible. Listed here are their instructions based on how to get it done.

“These tips will help you make the most of your ac system while burning less fuel,” says Buck, with Insurance, Florida's top independent auto insurance agency.

Don't Pre- Cool

Don't run the environment conditioning in your car until you will be ready to drive. The A/C works more effectively when you are driving. When you get to your way, open the windows and crank the fan to full blast. When cold air starts coming with the vents, close the front windows but keep your rear windows cracked open for another 10 – 20 seconds. This gets cold air towards the back of the car and helps to create a simple path for the heat to escape the cabin.

Go Low

Adjust the temperature and fan. Setting the temperature to the coldest temperature and adjusting the fans speed keep your air from becoming dry, making the A/C more efficient helping you save some fuel.

Don't Recirculate

If passengers are in the backseat, switch off recirculation mode. This takes air from the front from the car and pulls it back with the front system keeping the people upfront cool, but leaves the air in the back stale and hot.

Turn Off Start/Stop

Newer cars have an auto start-stop system, turn it off. This selection saves fuel, but it can also keep your ac compressor from running if this shuts the engine off. In hot weather, you will notice the possible lack of cool air quickly particularly if you are stuck at a lengthy stoplight or perhaps in stop and go traffic.

Check the environment Filter

Check your cabin's air filter to make sure it's clean. A dirty filter prevents ventilation.

Automatic Climate Control

If you have automatic heating and cooling in your car, lowering the temperature doesn't make the car cool off faster. Most systems is going to do all of the temperature and fan adjustments automatically, so you can just set it and forget it.
