Defogging Your Windows

With aggressive drivers, traffic jams, and nothing good on the radio, the last thing you need during your morning commute is foggy windows obstructing your view of the road. Especially when you’ve recently received windshield repair in Chicago, a foggy windshield and windows can be very frustrating. Here’s some advice to give yourself commutes with a clear view of the road.

How to Defog on a Cold Day

The fog that forms on your windshield is actually condensation, which collects when water vapor in the air near the glass falls below or above a certain temperature. Many drivers’ go-to move for foggy windows is to blast the defroster, using the hottest heat and the strongest setting to clear the glass. This is a good temporary fix, however, if you want to stop the fog from forming, experts recommend using cool air to lower the temperature on the inside of the glass.

How to Defog on a Warm Day

If you’ve recently had windshield repair in Chicago and your windshield is smooth and crack-free, defogging your windshield when you’re running the AC during spring or summer is much easier, simply requiring you use your wiper blades. If the humidity outside the car is causing the side windows to fog up, using warm air to raise the temperature in your car can be a great method of defogging.

What Not to Do

Unless absolutely necessary, avoid wiping foggy car windows with your hands, as they carry oils that may transfer to the glass. While your hands can improve your visibility temporarily, the oils can cause a problem later on. Keep a microfiber cloth in your car in case you need to clear the windshield quickly.

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!
