The car's air conditioning system is one of most important vehicle configurations for comfort, but some new drivers may still find it difficult to use air conditioner. Learning how to properly use your car's air conditioner can not only make your car's air conditioning system "do twice result with half effort," but also create a more comfortable driving environment. In this edition of The Bump Encyclopedia, I will walk you through how to use your car air conditioner.
Using internal and external circulation, an automotive air conditioner can "get twice performance with half effort"
The internal and external circulation function of car air conditioner must be adjusted at any time according to temperature difference between inside and outside car and needs of car owner, otherwise cooling effect of air may be affected. air conditioner. For example, after car is in sun in summer, temperature inside car is high. It is necessary to turn on external circulation of air conditioner so that hot air in car can be discharged faster. And when temperature inside car has reached appropriate state, you need to turn on internal circulation to better maintain temperature inside car.
In addition, in some cases where external environment of car is not good, such as a lot of exhaust, dust, peculiar smell, etc. outside car, it is also recommended that you turn on internal circulation to keep air in car clean. Therefore, internal and external circulation of an automobile air conditioner must be switched at any time depending on environment in which it is used. Turning on internal or external circulation under right circumstances can cause air conditioning system to double output for half effort.”
Using right airflow angle, a small amount of air can also be very comfortable
Although there isn't a lot of space in a car, air conditioning angle of a car air conditioner still has a relatively large impact on comfort, so it's important to learn how to use air angle correctly. Under normal conditions, when cold air is turned on, air conditioner outlet blows upward and cold air gradually descends; when warm air is turned on, air outlet of air conditioner will blow downwards, and hot air will gradually rise upwards. The air outlet setting of air conditioner usually also has an up and down position to choose from. If one position is selected, air volume will be larger, while multi-angle settings will dissipate air volume. You can adjust it according to your needs.
In addition, when front and rear windshields are fogged up, A/C defogging function should be actively turned on, at which time air volume will be automatically maximized and blow windows directly. After fogging on glass disappears, defogging function of air conditioner should be actively turned off to prevent temperature and comfort inside car from being affected by defogging function for a long time.
Use right temperature control without fear of four seasons out of car
What is correct temperature in car? I believe this is one of questions many novice drivers have. Although everyone relates to temperature differently, in general there is still some experience and rules of "old drivers" that can be followed. Typically, during summer, air conditioner temperature in a car can be adjusted to about 20 to 26 degrees Celsius. If there are higher requirements for cooling effect, temperature can be further reduced. At this time, turn on A/C button and air conditioner will start cooling.
In northern winters, you can usually set air conditioner temperature between 18 and 25 degrees Celsius. At this time, you do not need to turn on air conditioner switch. , and rely on engine heat to supply warm air. Thus, fuel-powered cars in winter Air conditioning and heating do not require fuel.
