Try as we might, it’s undeniable that the Earth is fast becoming a harder place to live in. Regardless to what part of the world you live in, natural disasters are a normal thing now-a-days. Unpredictable weather, and the harshness and fierceness of it is one of the biggest problems mankind has to face in present times.
With how experienced we are getting to handling hot weather, we’ve learnt to take care of ourselves. Regular hydration, covering up from the sun and sunscreens are a definite must in our daily routines.
And as important as it is to take care of ourselves against the harsh heat, it’s as important to take care of the machines that make our lives easier to live. Vehicles in particular fall into this category. Here are a few tips on how to take care of your vehicle and protect it against hot weather.
Have your vehicle regularly serviced.
Yes, we know that the outside weather doesn’t always have an effect on the vehicles. But the extreme weather definitely can make us lazy, and make us forget to regularly get the vehicles serviced. This puts you and the vehicle in trouble during emergencies. If you do decide to take your vehicle into servicing, don’t forget to ask your service providers about performance tuning as well.
Protect it if you have to park outdoors.
Does your work place have only outdoor parking? If so, then no doubt, your vehicle will turn toasty by sitting out in the sun all day. This makes cooling your vehicle very slow, even with impeccable AC service Dubai. To prevent this, purchase a car sun cover for your vehicle and make the effort to cover it up every time you have to park your car out in the sun for a prolonged time. Covering your car has also other added benefits, such as protecting against dust and dirt.
Does the thought of covering up your car every time you park feel like too much effort? If so, then consider investing on at least a windshield cover. This takes barely a few seconds to put up and take off. If not to keep the heat out, this protection is vital in order to maintain and protect your steering wheel and other upholsteries.
Keep an eye on the coolant and the car’s battery.
Again, this is not going to happen unless you have extreme hot weather, but as a precaution, do regularly check your car’s battery for excessive fluid evaporation. This can result in shortening your car battery’s lifespan. Likewise, it’s recommended that you top up the coolant whenever needed to avoid future complications for the car.
