The Effects of Summer Heat on a Windscreen Chip

Posted By novusautoglassc novusautoglassc     December 1, 2021    


During the summer, the temperatures will affect your windscreen one way or another. Windscreens are built to withstand various weather conditions, including snow, rain, high temperatures and winds. However, they are prone to chips and cracks, especially when the weather is extreme.


You might think that only a pebble or stone will cause damage to your windscreen, but temperatures also affect it. Windscreens expand in high temperatures and contract in low temperatures. If the temperatures change suddenly, it leads to cracking. High temperatures also cause more minor chips to grow into bigger holes.


Temperature changes during the summer occur when the windscreen absorbs heat, heating your car's interior, and you turn on the air conditioner full blast to cool down. As a result, the windscreen will experience temperature shock, which might result in a chip.


You can easily repair a chip depending on the size and the location of the damage. So, if you are experiencing such a situation, don't panic. The earlier you fix the chip, the better.


Follow These Tips to Prevent Summer Heat Windscreen Damage


  • Avoid sudden temperature changes whenever possible

Australian summers can be unbearable, and the first thing you want to do when getting into a hot car is turn on the air conditioning. However, this isn’t the best thing to do. Instead, gradually turn the air conditioning on to give the windscreen time to adjust to the temperature change.


  • Park under a shade

Either park your car indoors or under a shade whenever possible. It will keep the temperature in the car cool.


  • Repair the chip immediately it occurs.

If you leave a chip for too long, it will turn into a crack which will be more expensive to fix. So if you notice a chip, get it repaired straight away.
