Car heater won’t remove condensation Hamilton

If your car heater is not removing condensation, chances are something is wrong. When your windscreen is fogged up it can be dangerous to drive due to your lack of visibility, so it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

What causes condensation in your car?

When you get into your car on a cold morning, the heat from your body and your breath warms the air inside the car and increases the moisture levels. When the moist, warm air comes into contact with the cold glass it condenses and causes your windows to fog up.

How do I get rid of condensation in my car?

The main way to remove condensation is to crank your car’s heater up. If this doesn’t work – then chances are something is wrong with your heating unit and it will need to be repaired by your mechanic.

If your heater is at least partially working, try these tips:

  • Make sure that the hot air coming out of your vents is directed at your windscreen and windows, and turn the fan up on full.
  • You don’t want to overload your car with really hot air straight away, so start with a lower temperature and slowly turn up the heat.
  • Turn your air conditioning on, it will help to dry the air out more quickly.
  • Make sure you have your heating unit set to fresh air, and not recirculated air.

Why is my car heating not working?

A car heater can stop working for several reasons, including:

  • Your antifreeze/ water level in your radiator but might low, which could be caused by a leak in your cooling system
  • Your engines cooling system thermostat might be faulty
  • Your blower fan might have stopped working
  • You might have a blockage in your heating core that is stopping air from circulating probably into the interior of your car.

These are just a few of the common causes of heaters not working properly, its best to get your mechanic to examine it to know for sure.

Should I get my car heater fixed?

It is important to get your car heater looked at by your mechanic ASAP, it can be extremely dangerous to drive without the ability to quickly remove condensation. At the end of the day if you don’t get it looked at and fixed it won’t go away by itself and might become worse over time.
