Take precautions to prevent your windshield from shattering in bitter cold

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) –

In this brutally cold weather, cranking the heat in the car is something we all do, but you could cause some damage to the windshield if you’re not careful.

It is very tempting to blast the heat as soon as you get into your car, and auto care experts say that is fine as long as your windshield doesn’t have any cracks in it.

“If there’s no impact marks, no chips, no small cracks, by turning the defroster on, it will not break the windshield,” said John Jasminski, owner of American Autoglass.

That’s especially with temperatures hovering well-below the freezing mark.

“If you’re using an ice scraper, you don’t want to hit the windshield. Also, if you’re driving behind cars that have snow on the roof, I would be careful,” Jasminski said.

He’s spent several winters repairing windshields.

Winter weather damaging windshields

Several days of icy conditions across the Brazos Valley is taking a toll on our cars.

Freezing temperatures have left icicles hanging off highway bridges in College Station. They may seem like a pretty sight, but they’re causing trouble.

“We’ve had somebody call in say that they had some ice come off of an overpass off of highway 6 and smash up their jeep windshield,” said Camille Rickle with Safelite AutoGlass.

Employees at Safelite AutoGlass repair said this is an unusual scenario for them.

“I’ve heard people say things have fallen on vehicles themselves but not ice, not here,” said Rickle.

They’ve seen a lot of cracked windshields due to the cold.

“If they have little chips in their windshield that they may not know about…with the weather and the cold it could expand and cause cracks to come straight across,” said Rickle.
