Default Problems with fog on inside of windscreen

About 10-20secs after I start up in the morning there seem to be forming quite a lot of fog on the inside of the windscreen. Does anyone else have any issues with this?

Might it just be to change the cabin filter. Anyone got some experience?

Yep, check the cabin filter and air intake channels for any damp. Also make sure the carpets and mats aren't damp.

My new does it. My old one didn't. Might check the cabin filter. Def not the carpets getting wet. I wash it enough and I'd have noticed when I hoover it out!. Failing that, it could be something on the windscreen. I use a glass cleaner with a sealant in it, maybe it doesn't like the aircon on it.

Check the drain from the heater box/air con if this is blocked/restricted water can accumulate in bottom of heater which gives these symptoms
