What is the Heating System in Your Vehicle?
The heating system in your vehicle provides a variety of essential functions that ensure the proper operation of your vehicle. The main object of your vehicle’s heating system is to work with your coolant system to move the engine’s excess heat away to prevent overheating. When these two systems are working in harmony, your engine stays cool while you stay warm inside your car.
The complexities of your vehicle’s heating system do not always work in harmony, however. When you start experiencing symptoms of overheating in your vehicle, or your vehicle seems to not be heating properly inside, it’s time to bring your car to the Family Car Doctor. At Mike’s Full Service, our team expertly diagnoses your vehicle’s heating system and provides the best repairs to ensure your vehicle’s overall health.
Diagnose & Repair Your Heating System in North Georgia
Your vehicle’s heating system is comprised of a various components that ensure its proper function, and when one of those components fails to perform, the entire system is compromised. These components include:
- The heater core
- The heater hoses
- The water pump
- The heater fan
- The thermostat
Each of these components work together to regular the internal temperatures of the engine and the cabin: the water pump pushes coolant to the engine block and flows through the cylinder heads to the heater core where the fan directs the warm air into the vehicle’s cabin through the dashboard. After transferring that heat into the cabin of the vehicle, the coolant is returned to the water pump and the circulation begins again.
