Insurance Solutions Inc. has been serving Cullman, AL, for long enough to see a few things. They know what tends to harm cars the most, and some of those problems are unique to the southern climate. If you know the woes of a hundred degrees and 90-percent humidity, then these tips are for you.
Maintain the AC
Air conditioning is the most important feature of a car for many southerners. In the ultra-humid climate, it doubles as a dehumidifier. This is a good thing for your car’s interior. It prevents mold damage and similar humidity-caused ailments. It’s also hard on the AC. Add AC health checks to your regular maintenance. It can prevent expensive problems that will ruin your summer and make your interior vulnerable.
Clean the Undercarriage
You see this advice a lot in the colder climates. The salt from the winter roads is corrosive and dangerous. In Alabama, the problem is mud. Some of your cars never leave the city and have less of a problem with this, but for those of you who have a little fun driving, remember the bottom when you give your baby a bath.
Block the Sun
Every southerner respects the sun. It can be as brutal to your car as it is to you. Make sure your windows are properly tinted and use a windshield cover whenever you can. If you can’t park under cover, consider getting a cover for the whole vehicle.
When you give your car the attention it deserves, it can last a lot longer. That doesn’t just save you money in car payments. It can help with insurance rates too. If you want to see how residents in Cullman, AL, are saving money, talk to your Insurance Solutions Inc. representative.
