The Most Efficient Way to Use Your Car’s Air Conditioner
While it may feel like you are walking through an oven every time you go outside, you know the worst of the summer heat is still to come. That is why you love your air conditioning so much and take excellent care of it, right? If you are looking for ways to cool your car down quickly and find an efficient way to use your car’s A/C, we have a few tips for you.
- Park in the shade. If at all possible, park your car in the shade. Just a little bit of blockage from the scorching sun can keep your fingertips from burning when you touch your steering wheel. If you can’t find any shade, use a windshield screen.
- Start low. After starting the car, keep the air conditioning turned down low. It will need a minute or so to warm up. Automatic climate control will do this on its own.
- Open the windows. When you first get in your car, open all the windows and try to do some sharp 90-degree turns. This will hopefully push all the hot air out and let some “fresh” air in. Once you feel cool air coming from the vents, close the front windows and then the back windows a minute or so later so the rest of the hot air can be pushed out.
You do take care of your A/C, right? If it’s been a while, bring your vehicle into Mountaineer Mitsubishi and we’ll make sure that you stay as cool as possible all summer long.by
