Every year, many drivers complain about the fogging problem that occurs on the windows of their vehicles. Ignoring this problem can endanger the safety of the driver and passengers. However, thanks to the advanced technology, we can prevent this problem with some simple steps. In this article, we are going to give some helpful information about fogging and how to prevent fogging on your windows.
How Does Fogging Occur?
The fogging problem on your vehicle’s windows is based on a very simple principle. It is basic physics! The humidity of the air in the vehicle decreases as the temperature increases. When you decrease the temperature, the humidity tends to raise again. When you get into the vehicle, every breath you take causes you to give hot water vapor into the vehicle. When water vapor contact with the glass surface which is colder than the water vapor, it will change from gas to liquid naturally. This intensive liquid form covers all the windows on your vehicle. This is how the fogging problem occurs.
How to Prevent It?
There three simple steps which you can try to solve fogging problem. Here is the list;
- First of all, you can increase the temperature in the vehicle by using air conditioner. If you can raise the temperature to increase the amount of moisture in the air, you can solve the problem. However, make sure that the windows of your vehicle are closed when doing this. When the temperature is high enough, you can open the windows.
- Secondly, you can use the vehicle's air conditioning system at the lowest level. By using this way, you can reduce the amount of humidity in the vehicle and reduce fogging problem on the windows. Moreover, this solution will also reduce the fuel consumption of your vehicle.
- Lastly, as another alternative way, you can balance the interior temperature with the outside temperature. You can do this by opening the windows of your vehicle. However, using your vehicle like that can cause various health problems and may result with more fuel consumption due to friction.
