Today you can walk outside and start sweating after 2 1/2 minutes! Our bodies are certainly feeling the 90 degree heat, but what about our cars? When you park outside during these summer moths, your car will heat up very quickly. Heat coming in through the windows is absorbed by the interior of the car, and the glass windows act as an insulator.
This afternoon I conducted a little experiment in one of our news cars to test this theory. After only 30 minutes the inside temperature of the car had reached 126º! The temperature in your car can get up to 200º, depending on the temperature outside, the kind of vehicle you have, and how long it has been in the sun.
Tinted windows will cut down on the interior heat and so will sunshades, but not enough to ever leave a small child or pet in the back seats. Cracking windows don't even help; temperatures inside the car will continue to rise!
Keep those pointers in mind as we deal with this oppressive heat, and if you think of creative ways to stay cool send them my way!
Cheers for now!
