Why You Should Never Turn on the A/C Right After Getting Into the Car


Technology has taken us so far and also it has left still fear in our hearts about its future, this post relates the effects, of one of technology fine brands to our health that is turning on our Air Conditioners in our car right after getting into the car.

I found this on the net, and did some research on it. I implore us all to share this post to friends and family, for their health and benefit.

The major reason why you should never turn on the A/C right away is the effect it has on your health. When the car is parked in shade it actually produces 400-800 mg of benzene. The colorless liquid which is also known as benzol, has a sweet odor. It is soluble in water, it evaporates in the air quickly, and it is extremely flammable!

Benzene is used in the manufacture of plastics, explosives, paints, and as solvent. When exposed to external temperatures, the amount of produced benzene in the car can reach up to 4,000 mg, which is 40 times more than the recommended.

This means that if we leave the windows closed when entering the car, we breathe in huge amounts of benzene, which in turn causes damage to the kidneys, liver, and the bones.

The worst part is that the body is unable to get rid of this toxic substance easily and much of it ends up trapped inside. Therefore, what can we do regarding this issue?

When entering the car, open the windows or doors and ventilate the inside of the car for at least 2-5 minutes. Then, turn the A/C on and get rid of the accumulated toxins.

Now actually this is unproven that any such will happen, if you park your car for a long time in the shade, after series of scientific experiments, But we can still keep to it if we choose to. 

Now the real thing we should be worrying about here is stated thus. 

When you park your car, on a warm day, upon returning to the closed car, you should open the windows for a minute or two rather than turning on the air conditioning immediately. The reason for this is not the high levels of benzene the car emits that will likely kill you, but however, it is because when a car with its windows rolled up is parked in the sun, the condition can create a greenhouse effect which causes the interior of the vehicle to warm up to a temperature considerably higher than that of the outside air. 

Opening the windows for a few moments allows for the exchange of hot air from inside the vehicle with cooler air outside, speeding up the process of cooling off the car more than air conditioning alone would.
