Instructions on use of systems of ventilation, heating and air conditioning

Below detailed maintenance instructions of systems of heating, ventilation and air conditioning are provided in various climatic conditions. Information on is presented to attention of the reader how to provide effective ventilation, heating and air cooling in car salon, and also how quickly to remove from glasses condensate and hoarfrost.

All considered systems function only at the started engine. As a working body of the heat exchanger of a heater cooling liquid of the engine is used. If the engine is not heated-up to normal working temperature, some minutes before in salon warm air will start to move is required.

Functioning of central air of air does not depend on temperature of cooling liquid of the engine.

In absolute majority of cases the best efficiency of functioning of the systems providing a comfortable microclimate, is reached in a giving mode in salon of external air. Long inclusion of a mode of the closed circulation, especially at the idle conditioner, leads to a zapotevaniye of glasses and increase of a spertost of air therefore it is recommended to include this mode only in case of need and for rather short time, for example, at movement on the district with the filled with smoke or polluted atmosphere. As soon as need of isolation of salon will disappear, giving in salon of fresh air should be renewed.

External atmospheric air arrives in heating and conditioning systems through the receptions a lattice located before a windscreen and equipped with a fairing. Periodically clean openings of a reception lattice from leaves and the other garbage complicating passing of air.

Ventilation of salon of the car

The system of a supply and exhaust ventilation provides a constant exchange of air in car salon. The fresh external air arriving through a forward reception lattice, circulates on salon and then is removed through the exhaust outlets located in ware boxes of a luggage compartment.

For acceleration of cleaning of a windscreen from hoarfrost or ice it is recommended to include a mode of the closed air circulation in very cold weather at first. After the windscreen will be released from fly, renew supply of fresh air for the purpose of prevention of a zapotevaniye of glasses.

In a mode обдува glasses all submitted to salon of air arrives through the slot-hole nozzles located from above on the dashboard at the basis of a windscreen, and also via lateral ventilating deflectors of the dashboard. The air temperature, blowing glass, and speed of purification of glasses increase in process of engine warming up. For acceleration of process of removal from a windscreen of condensate, hoarfrost or ice it is possible to close lateral ventilating deflectors (situation 0 — see above item. Management of deflectors of ventilating lattices). In this case all air will go only on having blown in a windscreen.

For reasons of safety it is not necessary to begin movement until all windows of the car will not be cleared of condensate, and to the driver the adequate review will not be provided.

Switching off of systems of heating and ventilation

Temporarily to disconnect heating and ventilation systems, turn handles of regulators of a high-speed mode of the fan and air temperature in the extreme left provisions.

Need for shutdown of systems arises in the first some minutes after engine start in cold weather as it provides faster warming up of the engine to temperature, sufficient for effective functioning of a heater. In all other cases, in order to avoid an air stagnation in salon, hold the fan the constantly included.

Climate control system

The system of climate control can enter into a standard complete set of some models and carries out functions of automatic control by ventilation, heating and air conditioning in salon. The heater and the conditioner of air provide maintenance of the set air temperature. Besides, the system climate-kotrolya automatically carries out a choice of a demanded high-speed mode of the fan and makes distribution of distribution of air depending on the set temperature.

The direction of streams of the air arriving in salon from the central and lateral ventilating snuffled, it can be adjusted manually, by means of mobile lattices of deflectors (see above item. Management of deflectors of ventilating lattices).

The system automatically creates an optimum combination arriving via the conditioner and/or the heat exchanger of a heater of air streams, providing the fastest warming up or air cooling in salon to the set temperature, operation of automatically started elements of management is accompanied by a conclusion to the screen of the display of the corresponding symbolical images.

For the fastest warming up or air cooling in salon include a mode of the closed air circulation and turn the handle of a regulator of temperature in one of extreme (left or right) provisions — it is thus established top (32°С) or bottom (18°С) a limit of adjustable temperature. If a regulator of air temperature will turn in one of extreme provisions, the system will work in a constant mode, without being switched off, and warming up / cooling air with the greatest possible efficiency. Thus the system does not supervise the current air temperature in car salon. If the handle of a regulator to establish in one of intermediate provisions, the system will automatically support the set air temperature in car salon.

The fan automatically turns on in cold weather only after the engine worked some time and a heater is ready to heating of air.

Shutdown of system of climate control is carried out by a povorachivaniye of the handle of management by fan functioning in extreme left situation — indication on the screen of the display should go out.

The system should not be in the disconnected condition a little long time. In order to avoid an air stagnation and emergence of unpleasant smells it is recommended to keep in salon constantly the fan the included.

System functioning in a semi-automatic mode

There is a possibility of manual inclusion of any of functions of system of climate control when the last works in an automatic mode. Automatic control of management by all other functions of system thus remains. Squeezing of any of buttons of management transfers system to a semi-automatic mode — the control lamp which has been built in the AUTO button, and the corresponding inscription on the display should go out.

For the purpose of minimization of fuel consumption possibility of compulsory shutdown of modes of cooling / drainage of air by a nazhimaniye way on the ECO button is provided — on the screen of the display the inscription of the corresponding contents is displayed. Return to a mode of conditioning is carried out by repeated pressing the button (the corresponding indication should go out).

Inclusion of modes of removal of condensate / fly from glasses and a choice of the direction of distribution of air are made by means of the corresponding buttons on the control panel by system functioning (see the illustration Control panel functioning of systems of heating, ventilation and air conditioning on the models equipped with system of climate control). On the screen of the display symbolical images of the corresponding contents will be deduced.


The choice of the demanded directions of supply of air is carried out by combined use of three managing directors of buttons.

By means of the left rotary handle of the dashboard installation of a demanded temperature mode is made, the right handle allows to carry out a choice of a high-speed mode of the fan of a heater, and also to make К/В system shutdown.
