Air conditioning system
The air conditioning system is made of a cooling system, a heating system, a humidity control system and a ventilation unit. The air conditioning system assists the vehicle’s heating and ventilation systems.
Unlike the automatic climate control (the Climatronic system
), the air conditioning system is manually controlled by the driver. Besides adjusting the temperature, the air conditioning system also controls the air’s circulation and humidity; it also offers control on how clean the air is inside a car. Air cooling is based on the same functioning principle as a heat pump. The heated air is put through a fan and sent into an evaporator where the heat is removed. The defrost function can be activated during the cold season.
