Defrosters De-Mystified

At Pine Belt Chevrolet, our service technicians wanted to help folks better understand their defrosters. Often when things ice or fog up, which selection to make to clear your windows becomes a hit and miss mystery.  Wonder no more! Pine Belt Chevy will now de-mystify your defroster.

The Job Of A Defroster

The front window defroster in your vehicle is designed to remove frost, ice and condensation from the front windshield. Your vehicle may also be equipped with a back-window defroster. All late model vehicles have one as standard equipment.

Condensation 101

Outdoor temperature plays a big role in condensation. It forms on your windows when the outdoor temperature is colder than the temperature inside your vehicle. Especially during our New Jersey winters, when outdoor temperatures drop further, the condensation turns to frost or ice.

 

How A Defroster Clears the Window

Your vehicle’s front defroster system includes vents aimed at the windshield. Newer vehicles also have side vents in the dashboard aimed at the driver’s side and passenger’s side windows. The same fan and blower motor of your heater and air conditioner systems circulate air to the vents to defrost the windows. Rear window defrosters typically operate from electric wiring built into the rear window. The wiring heats up the window and the frost and ice will begin to melt.

 

Let Pine Belt Chevrolet Add The Defroster To Routine Maintenance

Your vehicle’s front defroster system is reliant upon the coolant, thermostat, heating system and blower fan.
