Using the Sun to Cool a Car in the Sun


MIAMI -- Aug. 19, 2014: A solar-powered car ventilation system, Kulcar, offers the U.S. consumer market an improved, more effective way to keep car interiors cool.

Gone are the days when car owners needed to touch hot steering wheels and seat belt buckles while inhaling dangerous fumes in their own vehicles. Kulcar's convenient size and design allows it to easily mount on car windows, providing a cooler and healthier ride.

Whenever a vehicle is parked in the sun, the interior temperature starts to rise, and those temperatures get seriously hot – at least 30 degrees higher than outdoor temperatures. Even outside temperatures in the 60s can cause a car's interior temperature to rise above 110, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Sonray Technologies' new Kulcar product offers an efficient, dual-chamber fan design that continuously circulates new air and expels hazardous fumes from inside parked cars to keep the interior cooler. It is strictly solar-powered and is capable of venting up to 45 cubic feet per minute, eliminating the uncomfortable hot air lurking in cars on sweltering days.

Kulcar completely replaces the air inside an average-sized car every 90 seconds, reducing vehicle temperatures by up to 68 degrees and providing a more comfortable ride home from work, to pick up the kids and to run errands. It reduces toxic fumes, benefitting both human health and the environment, and is useful for conserving fuel and energy. Kulcar effectively reduces deterioration of car interiors. When compared to the cost of running the vehicle's air conditioner to cool a blazing hot car – and compared to significantly more expensive products that vehicle manufacturers offer – Kulcar is also refreshingly cost-efficient.

Kulcar is now available on at Kulcar on Amazon for around $100.

"Using gas to cool down a car is obsolete and a waste of money," said Benjamin Wu, CEO of Sonray Technologies, Kulcar manufacturers. "Kulcar customers benefit from a product of incredible quality that really cools down their vehicles, saves money, improves their health and the environment."

Kulcar is ideal for parents, health- and environmentally conscious individuals, gadget lovers, car enthusiasts and more. It comes backed by a money-back guarantee to make at least an 18-degree difference under certain weather conditions when Kulcar is properly installed on a car parked for an hour or more. Sonray also includes a 10-year warranty on the solar panel and a one-year warranty on the frame, fan and other components.

Sonray Technologies markets products that allow people to live happier, healthier, smarter lives. Based in Taiwan, Sonray Technologies has more than 20 years of engineering and design experience with notebook computers, mobile phones, digital cameras, digital communication and solar power-related products.
