System of heating/ventilation of salon - the general information

The system of heating/ventilation consists of the fan placed in the casing located in interior of the car behind the dashboard ventilating snuffled the top level which lattices of deflectors are built in aflush in central and both side parts of the dashboard of the car, and air supply sleeves in forward foot wells.

The control panel is built also in in the central part of the dashboard of the car. Movement of control levers makes change of position of the corresponding gates due to which there is a deviation and mixing of the streams of air arriving from various parts of system of heating/ventilation. Gates are located in a casing of the air distributor from which the air which is warmed up up to the required temperature moves in various points of salon.

Cold air is sucked in in system through the lattice installed in a back part of a motive compartment. The air stream which force is defined by the speed of rotation of the fan of a heater on air ducts comes to various points of interior of the car depending on the chosen provision of control levers. Stagnant air is removed from salon through the air ducts laid in a back part of the car. In case of need heating, the soaked-up air, by movement of the corresponding control lever, goes to the heater heat exchanger, passing through which, heats up by selection of heat from engine cooling system liquid.

In case of need giving in salon of external air can be completely blocked by the choice of the mode of the closed circulation. Such opportunity allows to avoid hit in salon badly of the smelling or strongly dusty air, however the mode has to be used only quickly, owing to the fact that the air closed in small volume quickly stands.
