Outdoor SunSpaces News

Although carports appear to leave your car open to the elements, evidence suggests that parking your car under a carport can prevent your vehicle from frosting over, even in minus temperatures. Carports also protect your car from heavy snowfall that can damage the finish of your vehicle over time.

 

By investing in a carport, you can shed valuable time off your winter morning routine because you won’t have to rush out of bed early to defrost the car!

 

The Science Behind the Carport?

 

When you go outside on a cold night, you’ll notice that you lose heat from your body very quickly. The same thing is happening to your car that’s parked outside.

When your car gets below a certain temperature, water condenses out of the air onto it and freezes causing frost. If your car is parked under a carport the roof of the carport will radiate some heat down onto the surface of your car, preventing water from the air condensing and freezing onto your windshield.

These are also suitable for business use in a carpark or workspace – they are not just for home use!
