There are days, particularly in certain parts of the United States, where the out-of-doors feel like a sauna in summer. When you get in your car, the last thing you want is a blast of hot air in your face. If your vehicle’s A/C just isn’t cutting it, what can you do? Is there a way to make car A/C cooler (A/C refers to air conditioning)?
Let’s face it, if you want to sweat, you can always go to the gym and bang out a quick but strenuous workout. What’s more, you could step into a real sauna, rather than being subjected to one inside your vehicle. The following tips for making your car’s air conditioning colder may or may not work for you. They may not apply to your situation, or you may not get the results you’re looking for. It never hurts to try, however. What have you got to lose?
Don’t Confuse Your Vehicle’s A/C
Once all the hot air is out of the inside of your vehicle and it’s nicely cooled, how can you keep it that way? The air will reheat slightly if you keep it set to the middle. You may choose to run it at its maximum setting to keep it as cold as possible inside the car, as efficiently as possible. As needed, adjust the fan speed rather than the temperature.
Start Slowly, Then Increase The Cooling Level
Naturally, if it’s sweltering, you’re going to want to crank up the A/C as soon as you sit inside your vehicle. But stop! Just use the vent at first – that helps push out some hot air – and then turn the A/C on low. Progressively increase the setting.
Check to Make Sure Your A/C System Is Charged
By giving your refrigerant a reboot, you may be able to make your A/C operate faster and at a colder level. Purchase a can of refrigerant and check the instructions on the can. Click here for tips for recharging your system.
Whenever Possible, Find a Shady Parking Spot
This should come as a surprise to no one. Parking in the shade means it will be cooler in your car when you climb in. That also means your A/C won’t have to work as hard to initially cool the cabin of your vehicle.
Cabin Air Filter Replacement
So dirt, pollen, dust, and other pollutants don’t enter your vehicle through the heat and A/C vents, a cabin air filter is in place. If it’s dirty or clogged, it can block or inhibit airflow from your A/C. That means it’s harder for the A/C to do its job. You may be able to replace the filter yourself, or you might have to check with a technician.
