My wife’s logic says if you are trying to heat, or cool your vehicle quickly, it makes more sense to recycle the air inside the car, rather than trying to heat or cool the air from outside. So she uses the recirculation setting on the air conditioner.
I have to admit, the logic appears to be sound. The problem is when you have a vehicle full of people, and it is winter time, they often have snow on their boots, and they also tend to breathe! This puts a lot of moisture into the air, and without fresh air coming in from outside the vehicle through the AC, you wind up with a lot of humidity building up. On cool mornings, that means steamed windows, and on cold mornings, it means a healthy layer of frost on the inside of your windshield as well as outside. (I DON’T know how to easily prevent frost outside…Sorry)
If you have ever tried to scrape the interior of a windshield, then you know it is totally impossible, at best! Let the defrosters take care of it? OK! I hope you’re not in a hurry, and I hope you like looking through wet mitten streaks all winter, because that it what is in store for you!
So…What do you do? Most of you may not know this yet, and if you read my blogs about ticks, and DDT, you likely don’t believe it…But I am probably some sort of genius! Or I am at least more clever than the folks who manufacture this product, because they don’t mention this particular application for its use. Go down to the dollar store, and get one of those moisture removal containers that are full of calcium chloride and stick it on your dash!
Yup! That’s it! For one dollar your interior windows will be moisture free, and that makes them frost free too!
