Air-conditioning (climate control) what is this?
This is a cooling system that operates independently of the heating and provides comfortable cabin temperature during the warm days. When the car has air conditioning (climate control), you can completely control the temperature in all seasons. Proper body temperature is between 22 and 25 degrees. The maximum recommended difference between the exterior and the interior temperature is 10 degrees.
With air conditioning (climate control) you can:
- to travel with the windows closed (more economical and silent)
- to limit dust, heat and external odors (air conditioner (ECC) cools the air, reduces humidity limits particulate matter, pollen and micro-organisms. It is recommended for people with allergies.);
- To reduce driver fatigue (including air conditioning (climate control) helps the driver to feel alert and refreshed and be more cautious and more focused on driving);
- To increase road safety and driving comfort (air conditioning (climate control) eliminates the discomfort of driving perspiring windows on rainy or cold weather).How does it work?
The principle of operation is the same as at home refrigerator – the system is airtight. It contains the following major components:
- compressor installed on vehicle engine and driven by the track, V-belt or direct drive;
- connector on the compressor or command valve;
- condenser (heat exchanger) mounted in front of the car in front of the water heater;
- condenser fan;
- filter-drier, which removes dirt, small particles and moisture in the system;
- evaporator mounted radiator heating before;
- fan evaporator;
- thermo-regulation valve, providing evaporation (evaporation of refrigerant takes the heat from the heated air in the cabin. Also thermo-regulation valve regulates the flow of refrigerant.);
- tubes and hoses that connect the components listed;
- electrical equipment (pressure switches, sensors, cables, etc.).
