The 2 front defroster blowers stay at same speed even when on the highest, the interior side windows fog up and ice over when it's below 20 degrees outside, we live on NH so it happens alot. We've had the car all this time without a problem
Do you

You should have low and high and if not suspect and check blower motor and speed resister
make sure air is hot to
as its also very common for the heater core to clog and it need to be isolated flushed

We have plenty of heat and the blower works fine but the the side vents are restricted, very little air comes out even on high! Thus causing the inside windows to frost over, unless I keep the window open a crack. This occurs when outside temps are under 20 degrees!

Open hood
Remove the right side cowl vent screen.
Remove the screws and the water shield.

Thanks so much! We did what you said, the filter was filthy, filled with dirt, debris and many acorns. Will see how it works with the cold weather tomorrow morning. At least the filter is clean regardless.
PS, we appreciate your professionalism and timely response. We will for sure advertise for you by word of mouth in our large extended family and friends.
