A CAR expert has revealed a trick to keep your whole body cool while driving, and there’s even a feature for extra hot summer days.
Cars heat up quickly in the summer, especially if you have leather seats, but there’s a device that can cool you down if your air conditioning isn’t enough.
A TikToker who focuses on content for drivers (@cahal1) shared her car hack in a July video.
In the video, the TikToker installed a cooling car seat cushion in the driver’s seat.
She is seen connecting an external fan assembly to the car cushion and then attaching the cushion to the seat.
The cushion has buckles that attach to the car seat.
Using a USB adapter in a cigarette lighter that powers the pillow, the girl can use a remote control to change the pillow’s setting.
The cushion even has a setting that allows mist to exit the cushion to further cool the rider, as shown in the video.
According to the website that sells the pillow, the external fan assembly attaches to the air conditioning outlet under the driver’s seat.
The cool air is then blown into the pillow.
The US Sun also shared steps motorists can follow to ensure their air conditioning is running at its best.
Scotty Kilmer, who has 50 years of experience as a mechanic, posted a video urging his YouTube viewers to check their car’s cooling system.
“In order for your air conditioning to work properly, you first need to make sure your cooling system is working properly,” he said.
Kilmer advised drivers to check their systems for clean coolant and replace it if it’s dirty.
“Check your electric cooling fans to make sure they’re spinning when the air conditioning is on,” Kilmer added.
The mechanic also reminded viewers to remove any debris from their car’s grille as it could block the air conditioning.
