Keeping the car cool during those hot summer months

By August 14, 2016Shade Uses

People aren’t the only ones who need the shade. Cars need shade too. This is most important during those peak hot summer months. There are some times when you can’t put the car in a garage. The space just doesn’t allow for it. There are lots of cases when a car is kept outside for long periods of time. How about when you go to work, and your car sits in the parking lot? How about when you come home and your car does the same thing? How about when you visit someone at the hospital? You might only be in there for a few hours. During the hot summer months one hour is enough to really do some damage to the car. 

It sounds like a really cool idea to put a cover over your car and leave it sit there? Sounds really cool, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, these types of covers do not exist, or do they?


Good question. It’s not that the steel roofing is bad, it’s just damaging to the car. Let’s take a look at a for instance. Say there’s a really bad rain storm, one that brings lots of hail stones. It might not be likely in your areas, but just pretend for now. Those hail stones have a way of bouncing off the steel roof and create even more damage. They can damage the roof and the cars underneath. 

The sun also has a damaging effect on the roof. In theory it seems like a good idea, but it’s not. An indoor parking lot is not likely to face as much damage as an outdoor parking lot is. 


Let’s get the insurance thing out of the way first. Using one of these will greatly reduce your chances of getting stabbed in the back by the insurance companies. Using one of these things will also help to make you happier too. On hot days it’s very hard to feel happy about coming back to a hot car. It takes forever for the air conditioner to truly air everything out. This is what makes the car cover so cool. You can get into your nice, cool car after being out in the heat for several hours. 

Have you heard of fabric shades? You’ve probably seen them at pools or over playgrounds, but have you seen them over parking lots? Think about car dealerships. Many of these have them over their high-end cars.

Parking under shade drastically reduces the heat inside your car, making it more bearable to sit inside of immediately, rather than waiting for it to cool down. This is a rather new concept for most companies and their parking lots.
