Volkswagen beetles are classic automobiles. They are compact and ergonomic. Volkswagen beetles are the perfect European automobiles, capable of effortlessly fitting through narrow ancient streets and alleys of European cities. The beetle is now having a comeback. It is more powerful and more elegant than before. Its interior amenities include the basic internal climate control system that is perfectly adapted to the climate of any European cities. May it be Barcelona of sunny Spain or Moscow of frigid Russia, the internal climate control will maintain comfort for the passengers. The functional units of this internal climate control system are the air conditioning unit and the heater.
Air conditioning units and heaters have opposite but complementary functions. An air conditioning unit lowers the temperature inside the vehicle when the temperature outside is too hot or humid to be comfortable. On the other hand, an automobile heater warms the temperature inside the vehicle when the temperature outside is too frigid. Although the air condition unit can double as a heater, it is not cost-effective and it is impractical to do so. An air condition unit uses more energy than a conventional heater. Extra electrical energy needs to be consumed to sustain the compressor and the air blower of the air condition unit.
The Volkswagen heater core is the functional unit of the Volkswagen heater. It is actually a small radiator that is similar to the main radiator of the automobile. It utilizes the heated coolant from the engine block as thermal energy source. It also has a fan than blows air on its surface. The main difference between the main automobile radiator and heater core is function. The main radiator simply dissipates the excess thermal energy from the engine. The heat from the main radiator has no direct practical function. On the other hand, the heat that is released by the heater core is utilized to warm the interior of the vehicle.
Heat circulates inside the vehicle by blowing air on the surface of the heater core. An electric fan powered by the batteries blows air on the heater core. It results in the circulation of hot air inside the vehicle. If the vehicle is securely closed, the warm air will remain even if the blower fan or heater is turned off. You can turn off the heater by turning off the blower. The heater core valve simultaneously closes as the blower is turned off. Defective blowers may mean inefficient circulation of warm air inside the vehicle. Sometimes it is the blower that has a problem and not the heater core. Nonetheless, whatever heater components that you need, we have it here at Parts Train. We offer the widest selections of different automotive components.
