Summer Tips to Help Your Car Beat the Heat

Summer weather can be tough on your car. The rising temperatures put extra strain on your car’s engine and tires. The heat can also put additional wear on your vehicle’s cooling system. At Car Pretty, we help our customers keep their cars running smoothly, regardless of the weather. You can keep your car riding smoothly and even save money with just a few seasonal maintenance tips.

  • Flush your radiator.

Your car’s radiator works hard during the summer. Because it does so much work inside your car, it can form blockages inside the radiator which can eventually render your system less efficient. Radiator blockages can also cause your car to overheat. Having your radiator flushed can help prevent blockages and can also help prevent a cracked head gasket.

  • Replace your engine air filter.

Your car’s engine air filter is responsible for keeping dirt and debris out of the engine. Most car mechanics recommend having your engine air filter changed every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If your area has increased pollution levels or high dust count during the summer months, then you might want to consider having your engine air filter changed more frequently.

  • Charge your air conditioner.

You don’t want to wait for the hottest day of summer to find out that your air conditioner needs to be replaced. Turn on your air conditioner in the early spring and then take it to a trusted mechanic if you need to have it recharged. You’ll be happy that you took the time to do this.

  • Check your tires.

You’ll want to check to make sure that your tires are properly inflated during the summer months. You’ll save an average of $600 a year by not having to prematurely replace them. It’s important to check that your tires are properly inflated because hotter temperatures can increase tire pressure, leading to unnecessary wear and tear.

If you haven’t considered summer car maintenance, it's not too late to get a short check-list together. At Car Pretty, we help all of our customers guarantee that they have safe and comfortable vehicles all year round, so stop in or give us a call today and find out what we can do.

When is The Best Time to Get Your Windows Tinted?

Have you ever considered window tint for your car’s windows? Many people are curious about window tint but don’t know how it works. A good window tint will block the UV rays from your vehicle. It also helps protect against glare and it can provide better driving visibility, too.

The right window tint will also protect your car’s interior, and will strengthen your windows, too. What’s more, many people believe that window tint makes their car look more aesthetically pleasing. At Car Pretty, we provide the best window tinting services in the area. If you need your windows tinted and are looking for a trusted company to do the work, then stop in or give us a call.

Because having your car windows tinted requires a specific amount of time to be completed, it’s important to know what the weather forecast before scheduling your appointment. A freshly tinted vehicle needs time to cure to guarantee full adhesion to the windows. Choosing the right time of year to have your car’s window tinted can help improve the application process and will ensure that your financial investment pays off.

In general, curing takes about three days in ideal weather conditions. You will not be able to roll your windows up or down during this time because of the window adhesion process. Choosing the right time of year is important so that you can allow your vehicle the proper amount of time to complete the process. Spring and fall are the two most ideal seasons to have your car’s window’s tinted. This is because the temperatures are generally mild and the humidity is usually low.

Although rain can pose a potential issue in the spring, it is still considered a great time of year to have your window’s tinted. Lingering heat in the fall can also be a concern, but generally speaking, these two seasons are best for window tinting. If you do opt to have your windows tinted in either the summer or the winter, you’ll need to consider both humidity for the former and cold for the latter. Keep in mind that many car shops do not have an interior facility, so tinting at their location might not even be an option.
