Keeping Warm in the Car

Tricks to Stay Warm In the Car this Winter

On a hot summer day, it can be painful to get inside a sweltering car-especially if you have kids. However, on a cold day, the inside of a freezing car can be just as miserable. So instead of simply layering up your family or hoping the car warms up before you reach your destination, here's a few ways you and all your passengers can get the inside of your car feeling toasty and warm.

Since letting your car idle while it warms up inside isn't great for your car's engine or if you are trying to make less trips to the gas station, you'll need to try a few different techniques to get a warmer car.

  • Consider where you park- If your car is parked outside, aim to park your car where it can get full sunlight. Especially in the morning. So park your car facing east so your car can be warmed by the sun.
  • You can actually purchase small heaters for the inside of your car to keep everyone feeling warm. ┬áThis is a great option for families that have early commutes when the weather is the most cold. You can also purchase seat warmers and steering wheel warmers if you are feeling the freeze of the winter months.
  • If you park outside, consider buying a windshield cover for your car. This will help to keep the snow and ice off of your windshield but will also act as an insulator for the inside of your car. So no only will you get to skip scraping the windows, but the inside of your car will be warmer too.
  • Leave warm blankets inside your car. When everyone gets into the car, let them wrap up with blankets. Also be sure to keep spare hats, gloves and scarves in the car as well. You can put a small plastic bin inside the car to store everything.
