Thread: Window Fans

  1. #1

    Default Window Fans

    Do any of you that had window fans installed find that they were needed and functional in keeping the windows from fogging?

    When it is raining, I use them all the time. Crack a window and crank the fans. They work great.

    If you don't have your heat ducted for defrost, get the fans. You'll be glad you did on the rainy days, just as Spoiled One said.

    I just open the windows about three inches while I'm running and the windows clear up without a fan. They may fog up again as soon as you stop and sometimes it is not possible to drive with both windows open. In those cases a fan on each side of the windshield is a great option.

    I will install fans either way just so that I can circulate air around the cabin better.

    We need to figure out a good way to duct the espar for a window defroster.

    I agree DMan. I might be as simple as running a duct with a shut-off valve to a defroster rib that funs along the base of the windshield. I will install fans either way because you can't always direct air without moisture through a window.

    Default soap

    If moisture interferes with your visibility, use a micro fiber towel with a few drops of dish soap to wipe down the insides of the windows and all will be well. Many times fans will not keep up, especially if you have a few wet relatives huddled inside. One towel will last the season with a drop of soap here and there.

    Enjoy
