6 Hacks to Keep your Car Cool without Air Conditioning

Fatma Nouphal

When the temperature in Dubai exceeds 35°C during the summer, air conditioning in your car becomes vital. Relying only on-air conditioning, on the other hand, can result in higher energy usage. Furthermore, if your car's air conditioning fails or requires maintenance, you may be left without a reliable way to stay cool while driving. Fortunately, there are numerous pointed hacks you can use to keep your car cool without air conditioning, allowing you to save energy and make your driving experience more comfortable in Dubai's blistering heat.

1. Park in the Shade:

Parking in the shade is the simplest and most effective technique to keep your car cool without air conditioning. The temperature inside your car can rise by up to 20 degrees in direct sunshine, so park in a covered area whenever feasible. Of course, that might mean walking further from a parking spot. But try to avoid heating your car with direct sun whenever possible.

2. Use a Windshield:

If you can't find a shady place to park your car, use a Windshield sunshade to block the sun's rays and keep your car cooler. Windshield sunshades are low-cost and highly effective automotive cooling hacks.

3. Add a Window film tint:

A long-term solution for keeping your car cooler is to add a window film tint to your car's glass. This can reduce the amount of heat that enters your car and also protect your skin from UV rays.

4. Swap vinyl-covered seats for cloth:

If you have vinyl-covered seats, consider swapping them for cloth seats. Cloth seats can help prevent sweaty backs from sticking to the seats and allow for better air circulation. If you have leather seats, look for seats with tiny perforations that allow air movement.

5. Use a simple car cooler device:

Another hack is to use a simple car cooler device, which can be nearly as effective as a built-in AC system. These portable coolers use ice or water to cool the air inside your car and are especially useful for long road trips.

6. Leave a window open: 

When you park your car in the heat, leave at least one window open by about an inch. This allows the hot air inside your car to escape and prevent the temperature from becoming unbearable. But make sure to remove any valuable items from your car and only leave the window open a small amount to prevent theft.

In short, these particular techniques can assist you in keeping your car cool without the need of air conditioning. You may save energy and improve your driving experience even if you don't have air conditioning by using these tips.
