When the summer heat in Qatar reaches its peak, with temperatures soaring nearly 49 degrees, keeping your vehicle cool becomes essential for both comfort and safety. Here are some practical tips to help you maintain a cooler car even in the most intense heat.

 

Be smart in your parking

Always try to park your car in the shade. Whether it’s under a tree, in a parking shade, or beside a building, avoid direct sunlight which can significantly reduce the temperature of your vehicle interior.

Since public parking in Qatar has limited shades available a car cover can provide an extra layer of protection against this burning sun.

 

Ventilate your car

Qatar is a safe space. There is sure to be no harm if you choose to leave your car window slightly open. This can allow hot air to escape and promote ventilation.

 

Use a solar-powered fan

Solar-powered fans are great to be of use to circulate air and reduce the overall temperature inside your car. These fans are easy to install and efficient to use, since    Qatar has an abundance of sunlight!

 

Install heat-reflective film

Applying a heat reflective film on your vehicle windows can help drastically reduce the amount of heat entering inside your vehicle. These films are designed to reflect UV rays help lower the interior temperature and protect your car from overheating.

 

Cover your seats and steering wheel

Invest in light–colored breathable seat covers. These help in protecting the quality of your seats while keeping them cooler.

A reflective or a light-coloured steering wheel cover can prevent it from becoming too hot to touch and make it difficult to drive.

 

Cool your car before starting to drive

Before you start driving, open the doors and windows for a few minutes and let the hot air escape. Then turn on the AC to full for a quick cooling down effect.

 

Use the right type of fuel

Always make sure you use high-quality fuel that can aid in improving your car performance and help it run cooler.

Choose the right type of motor oil that is designed specifically for high temperatures. This will make sure that your engine remains cool.
