MANY drivers bear the brunt of higher gas bills from busting their car’s air conditioning in the summer, but a simple adjustment will keep drivers consistently comfortable in warm temperatures.
A solar powered fan can have a positive impact on your ride down the road when things get hot.
These devices attach to the top of one of your car’s windows and receive power from an outward-facing solar panel, reports Garage Living.
The accessory’s inboard fan blows hot air out of your vehicle’s interior while drawing in and circulating cooler air from outside.
Drivers can increase the efficiency of this product by installing two fans on the front or back row windows.
Some larger and more efficient car solar fans are powered by a solar panel on your dash, according to Garage Living.
But cooling isn’t the only opportunity solar fans can offer drivers.
Yes, installing eco-friendly window fans instead of constantly blowing your car’s air conditioning (A/C) will reduce gas usage, but these products can also emit foul odors.
Solar vehicle fans eliminate unpleasant odors by circulating air when a car’s windows are closed and by pushing out warm air that may be affected by factors such as mold or mildew.
This window-up air circulation design is especially useful in rainy days.
Drivers can also use a manual fan trick to cool down their car before turning on the air conditioning.
You begin this trick by getting into your vehicle and rolling down the passenger window.
Eventually you would open and close the driver’s door repeatedly, creating a pumping motion that expels hot air from the interior.
