Your AC and Your Windshield

Summer is close and while some of us love driving with the windows down, others love blasting their car’s AC. Do you need a new auto glass in Chicago? Have you ever noticed that you feel cool and comfortable with the AC blowing in your car, but there is a thin film of condensation on your windshield? There’s an answer for this!


Most of the time the condensation will be on the outside of the windshield. If it is pretty cold in your car, the moisture will develop on the windshield due to condensation. It’s the same reason a puddle of water can collect under your car if you choose to use your AC on a humid day.

More Information

It’s important to think of air conditioning more of emitting dry air instead of just cold air. Even in summer, we get days that are chilly and sometimes even rainy. Visibility is important on a cold or rainy day. Ignore the urge to use the heat. It’s more beneficial to turn on the air conditioner. If you need to de-fog your windshield from the condensation, you can blow the hot and dry air toward it. This way, using a rag to de-fog your windshield is no longer necessary and you can keep both hands on the steering wheel.

If you think something is off with your air conditioner in your car that is affecting your windshield, stop by Frank’s Auto Glass. You may need new auto glass in Chicago and we are here to service you. Stop by or call us today with any questions.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

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!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
