Maintaining a comfortable temperature inside the vehicle is a fundamental aspect for the comfort and safety of the trip
During the summer many kilometers and hours are spent inside the car, so it is important to ensure that the vehicle’s air conditioning system works correctly. Therefore, it will be key to take into account a series of tips to use the air conditioner efficiently
and not get hotaccording to
Before resuming the march: although it is obvious, trying to park in the shade is the quintessential ‘trick’ to prevent the vehicle from reaching high temperatures. It is true that, in summer, whether on the beach or in the city, it is not always possible. A solution that helps lower the temperature inside the vehicle by up to 10º is to open the doors with the air conditioning running at low power. In this way, the cooling process is accelerated without resulting in higher energy consumption, saving up to 20% in vehicle consumption.
The first kilometers without the air at full capacity: having started the march, we will put the air conditioning at a medium level with the windows lowered until we pick up speed, at which time the air conditioning revolutions can be raised and increased.
Point the vent up: cold air weighs more than hot air, so focusing the grilles towards the ceiling will cool the interior of the vehicle faster and favor air circulation.
never less than 22 degrees: it is advisable to keep the temperature between 22º and 23º and without directing it towards the face or neck, but rather towards the ceiling. In summer, we tend to put the air conditioning at very low temperatures in order to escape the heat as soon as possible, something that can be detrimental to our health. In fact, the great temperature contrasts cause unexpected colds that can endanger the rest of the vacation.
For long trips, better air recirculation: once the ideal temperature has been reached, and especially for long trips, it is best to use the ‘air recirculation’ functionality to take advantage of the cold air inside the cabin and ensure that all passengers, even those in the back of the vehicle, enjoy a comfortable temperature throughout the journey. In addition, in this way we will avoid excessive use of the refrigeration system and protect the compressor against potential breakdowns.
