Defogging Your Chicago Auto Glass

It’s happened to all of us; Fog on your car windows is a common problem as the winter months run their course. As the cold air comes in contact with the warm windows in your car, condensation is created. This obstruction can significantly decrease visibility while driving and be a serious annoyance if you’re in a rush. Clear up your Chicago auto glass as quickly as possible with these tips from the experts at Frank’s Auto Glass.

Crank the Heat

First and foremost, you must turn your heat on to the maximum setting. Hot air holds more moisture than cool air, which will seriously speed up the process.


This may sound counterintuitive, but the next step is to turn the AC on. This will help filter out moisture from the air as it passes over the cooling coils.

Turn Off Recirculation

Next, you’ll want to turn off the recirculation button so your car stops reusing the already warm air in your car and instead begins circulating the cooler, drier air from outside.

Crack Your Windows

If you can bear it, roll down your windows to let in a little outside breeze. Keep them cracked for a couple of minutes to exchange the humid, inside air for the drier, outside air.

Make sure your Chicago auto glass is in optimal driving condition. No matter how frustrating it is to wait for your windows to clear up, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Contact Frank’s Auto Glass today if you have any more questions.

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!
