Cold Mornings to Warm Afternoons: Risky With a Crack in the Windshield

Glass expands when warm and contracts when cold. While automotive glass is designed to minimize thermal strain, extreme temperatures over long periods of time may encourage cracks to form or worsen in a windshield.
This is especially true when your hot car cools down too quickly. The glass expands and contracts when the temperature changes, making it more stressed and fragile. 
In the warm afternoons, it is recommended that you cool your car slowly, putting the AC on low to start. It is also a good idea to angle the vents downward, away from the windshield, or use the floor setting to start. Just like when you warm up glass too quickly, rapidly cooling it can also cause it to crack. Gradually changing the temperature of your vehicle’s cabin can make a huge difference and extend the life of your windshield.
Even a small chip should be repaired as soon as possible, as it will quickly spread, especially with temperature fluctuations. Addressing the problem quickly could mean the difference between an easy repair and a full windshield replacement.
