At correct use of possibilities of systems of heating and ventilation in car salon comfortable conditions of stay are provided and is excluded запотевание glasses.

If the car at purchase has not been equipped by air central air, it can be mounted and established during any time convenient for the owner, at any time establish this system on the car, - address on company Subaru car repair shop.

 On the models equipped with system K/V usually it is established салонный the filter providing preliminary clearing of external air submitted in the car. The filtering element is established under the lattice located ahead of a windscreen обтекателя, made of viscose, to procleaning is not subject and in case of pollution owes to replacement. In normal service conditions of the car replacement салонного the filter should be made annually, or through each 15 000 km of run.


The detailed information on use and service of systems of heating and an air conditioning is stated more low (see also the Head of System of cooling, heating).

Air giving in car salon

Air giving in car salon carries out on a network of air lines of system of the ventilation, terminating equipped дефлекторами nozzles.

 

Target nozzles of air lines settle down on the panel of devices and in foot wells of salon.

Management дефлекторами the central and lateral air lines of the panel of devices

Дефлекторы the central and lateral air lines of the panel of devices are equipped special rotary жалюзийными by the lattices, allowing to regulate a direction of giving of an air stream both in horizontal, and in vertical planes. Management дефлекторами is carried out by means of built in a lattice snuffled ring handles, intensity of giving of air through lateral nozzles is regulated built in facing дефлектора by a ring regulator.

In the top forward part of the panel of devices the central slot-hole nozzles of giving of air are located on having blown in a windscreen and two lateral rotary deflectors blowing door glasses. The direction of giving of air through slot-hole nozzles is not subject to adjustment. Lateral deflectors can be in case of need developed so that to provide additional giving of air on a windscreen for the purpose of acceleration of removal from it a condensate, - do not forget to return then deflectors in a starting position (on having blown in lateral glasses).


The control panel functioning of systems of ventilation/heating/air conditioning

Hand-operated models functioning К/В

The design of the control panel is presented by functioning of systems of ventilation/heating/air conditioning on an illustration.

Located the rotary handle serves in the left part of the control panel for a choice of a temperature mode of functioning of a heater. The dark blue range of the handle of a scale put on perimetre corresponds to a mode of giving of cool air, red - to a heating mode.

In the central part of the panel the rotary handle of the switch of a choice of a high-speed mode of the fan of a heater is located. The fan functions only at the included ignition (a key in position ON). The switch allows to choose one of four possible high-speed modes (from «1» to «4»), and also absolutely to disconnect the fan (position «0»).

On the right the rotary handle of a choice of directions of distribution of the air stream is located on the panel, having five fixed positions:

Air giving on obverse level;
Air giving on obverse level and in foot wells;
Air giving in foot wells;
Air giving in foot wells and on having blown in a windscreen;
Air giving on having blown in a windscreen.

In the bottom part of the control panel three push-button switches equipped by built in control lamps are located. Right from them serves for activation of functioning of the conditioner of air. For switching-off К/В it is necessary to press the switch repeatedly (the control lamp should go out).

In the middle there is a switch of a mode of ventilation of air. Activation of the given mode (the control lamp burns) results to giving switching-off in salon of fresh air. Repeated pressing the switch button (the lamp does not burn) allows to restore air giving.

 Long use of the closed circulation, especially at the idle conditioner of air, leads запотеванию glasses and to increase спертости air, therefore it is recommended to include the given mode only in case of need and for rather short time, for example, at movement on district with the filled with smoke or polluted atmosphere. As soon as necessity of isolation of salon will disappear, giving of fresh air should be renewed.

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

Detailed maintenance instructions of systems of heating, ventilation and air conditioning in various environmental conditions are more low resulted. The information on is presented attention of the reader how to provide effective ventilation, heating and air cooling in car salon, and also how quickly to remove from glasses a condensate and hoarfrost.

All considered systems function only at the started engine. As a working body for a heater the 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. Work of a central air of air does not depend on temperature of a cooling liquid of the engine.

In overwhelming 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 circulation, especially at the idle conditioner of air, leads запотеванию glasses and to increase спертости air, therefore it is recommended to include the given mode only in case of need and for rather short time, for example, at movement on district with the filled with smoke or polluted atmosphere. As soon as necessity of isolation of salon will disappear, giving in salon of fresh air should be renewed.

External atmospheric air arrives in systems of heating and air-conditioning through the reception lattice located before a windscreen and equipped обтекателем. Periodically clean apertures of a reception lattice from leaves and the other dust complicating passage of air.

Ventilation of salon of the car

The forced-air and exhaust ventilation system provides a constant exchange of air in car salon. The fresh external air arriving through a forward reception lattice, circulates on salon and then leaves through the exhaust outlets located near to back glass:

a) Turn the handle of a regulator of temperature of air counter-clockwise against the stop. Check up, that air conditioner has been switched off;
b) Establish the handle of switching of directions of giving of air in position. The air circulation mode should be switched off;
c) By means of the handle of a choice of a high-speed mode of the fan establish demanded intensity of giving of air in car salon.

Air cooling in car salon

Salon cooling is made as follows:

a) Include air conditioner, having pressed button "А/С", - the control lamp built in the switch should light up;
b) Check up, that the handle of a regulator of temperature of air has been turned in extreme left position;
c) Establish the handle of switching of directions of giving of air in position;
d) At high humidity of external air include a circulation mode, at low humidity, - a mode of inflow of fresh air;
e) By means of the handle of a choice of a high-speed mode of the fan establish demanded intensity of giving of air in salon.

If the car has staid long time for the sun and air in salon has strongly heated up, quickly to lower temperature in salon as follows:

a) Start the engine;
b) Include air conditioner. Check up, that the handle of a regulator of temperature of air has been turned in extreme left position;
c) By means of the handle of a choice of a high-speed mode of the fan establish the maximum intensity of giving of air in salon;
d) Partially slightly open windows and turn the handle of switching of a direction of distribution of air in position. Include a mode of inflow of fresh air.

After air temperature in salon will decrease to comprehensible level, close windows and establish a normal mode of an air conditioning.

Work of a central air of air leads to loading increase on the car engine, therefore it is necessary to watch closely an arrow of the index of temperature of a cooling liquid, moving with frequent stops and on small speed in the conditions of an intense city cycle, or overcoming long liftings of a considerable steepness. At approach of an arrow of the index to a red range of a scale, temporarily switch off air conditioner until the engine temperature will not return to norm.

Heating of salon of the car

To lift air temperature in car salon, execute following manipulations:

a) Start the engine;
b) Establish the handle of switching of directions of distribution of air in position. The air circulation mode should be switched off;
c) By means of the handle of a choice of a high-speed mode of the fan establish demanded intensity of giving of air in salon;
d) Turning the handle of a regulator of temperature of air in this or that party, establish desirable degree of heating of air.

Heating of salon with simultaneous drainage of air by means of the conditioner

At work of a central air humidity of air in car salon decreases, therefore simultaneous inclusion of systems of heating and air-conditioning allows to make air in car salon warm and dry:

a) Include the fan;
b) Include air conditioner;
c) Establish the handle of switching of directions of distribution of air in position. The air circulation mode should be switched off;
d) Turning the handle of a regulator of temperature of air in this or that party, establish desirable degree of heating of air arriving in salon. In the given mode cold air from the conditioner mixes up with warm air from a heater.

Joint inclusion of systems of heating and air conditioning can be applied in any traffic conditions, when air temperature above 0°С.

Removal from condensate and hoarfrost glasses

To clear internal surfaces of glasses of the condensed moisture it is possible as follows:

a) Include the fan;
b) At a corresponding complete set of the car include air conditioner;
c) Establish the handle of switching of directions of distribution of air in position. The air circulation mode should be switched off. Some variants of execution of the car provide possibility of automatic inclusion of a mode of giving of fresh air and its conditioner by installation of the handle of switching of directions of distribution of air in position;
d) Turn the handle of a regulator of temperature of air in such position that warm air moved through nozzles blowing a windscreen;
e) Include an electroheater of back glass for faster removal of the condensed moisture from its surface. On some variants of execution of the car if the handle of switching of directions of distribution of air is in any position except, air conditioner remains included. For conditioner deenergizing press button A/S.

To remove from an external surface wind and lateral glasses hoarfrost or the ice formed after parking of the car in the street in frosty weather, execute following manipulations:

a) Include ignition, having turned a key in the lock in position «ON» (II);
b) Establish the handle of switching of directions of distribution of air in position. The air circulation mode should be switched off. Some variants of execution of the car provide possibility of automatic inclusion of a mode of giving of fresh air and the conditioner, by installation of the handle of switching of modes of a direction of distribution in position;
c) Turn the handle of a regulator of temperature of air in extreme right position (the maximum heating of air) and include the fan for the maximum speed;
d) Start the car engine.

For acceleration of clearing of a windscreen from hoarfrost or ice it is recommended to include an air circulation mode in very cold weather at first. After the windscreen will be released from наледи, renew giving of fresh air for the purpose of prevention запотевания glasses.

In a mode blowing glasses all submitted to air salon arrives through the slot-hole nozzles located from above on the panel of devices at the basis of a windscreen, and also through lateral ventilating deflectors panels of devices. The temperature of air blowing in glasses, and speed of clearing of glasses increase in process of engine warming up. For acceleration of process of removal from a windscreen of a condensate, hoarfrost or ice it is possible to direct on it top lateral deflectors panels of devices.

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

Deenergizing 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 positions.

Necessity for switching-off 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 hold the fan constantly included in avoidance of a stagnation of air in salon.

The models equipped with system of an automatic air conditioning (climate control)

The design of the control panel is presented by functioning of system of the climate control on an illustration.

1 — the Switch of a mode of automatic functioning (AUTO)
2 — the Switch of system of the climate control
3 — the Switch of a conclusion of indications of the external thermometer
4 — Vykljuchetl of a mode of removal of a condensate from glasses
5 — the Switch of heating of back glass
6 — the Switch of a choice of a high-speed mode of functioning of the fan

7 — system K/V Switch
8 — the Switch of a choice of directions of distribution of an air stream
9 — the air circulation Switch
10 — a temperature Regulator
11 — the Built in thermometer of measurement of temperature of air in salon

Activation of a mode of automatic control (AUTO)

Mode AUTO is activated by the sector button "AUTO" located in the left part of the control panel. In mode AUTO (on the control panel the display inscription of the corresponding maintenance is highlighted) the climate control system starts to regulate automatically air temperature in salon according to the installations entered by the user. Into number of parametres traced by system enter: temperature of air arriving from air lines, speed of rotation of the fan, a direction of distribution of an air stream, a mode of circulation and activation К/В.

Activation of a mode of power savings (ECON)

Repeated pressing button "AUTO" at already activated mode AUTO leads to system transition in power savings mode (ECON), - on the control panel the display inscription of the corresponding maintenance is highlighted.

 In mode ECON on glasses the condensate is easily besieged, therefore at the raised humidity of air are recommended to use mode AUTO, - press button AUTO once again.

Transition in a hand control mode

For transfer of system from mode AUTO in a hand control mode (MANUAL) it is enough to press the button «», «», «MODE», «А/С» or, - indicator "AUTO" on the control panel should go out. Pressing on listed above the button leads to activation of possibility of independent regulation of the corresponding parametre (glass heating, inclusion/deenergizing of a mode of circulation, a choice of a direction of distribution of air, activation К/В and a choice of a high-speed mode of the fan accordingly).

 Thus the automatic control of other working parametres remains.

Deenergizing of system of the climate control

Pressing sector button "OFF" leads to switching-off of compressor K/V and the fan of forcing of air in salon), simultaneously there is an automatic transition in a mode of giving of fresh air («»). The remark: On models with a right-hand steering switching-off the control climate is accompanied by transition in a circulation mode («»).

 Activation of system of the climate control at movement with lighted running fires can lead to decrease in brightness of illumination of devices, - for restoration of intensity of illumination press button "OFF" and keep its pressed during nearby 1 second.

Conclusion of indications of the external thermometer

Pressing button "OUT.TEMP" at the included ignition (a key in position ON) allows to display for a while about 5 seconds of the display the indication of the external thermometer. After the specified term the display will return to a conclusion of value of temperature of air in salon. Keeping of the button pressed within more than 2 seconds translates the display in alternating mode when on it values of temperatures of external and internal air are alternately deduced.

 In bright solar weather, at long parking with working engine, and also at movement in an intense city cycle (a mode start-stop) the overestimated indications of temperature can stand out.

Inclusion of heating of glasses

The button «» is used in need of fast warming up or drying wind and lateral glasses. By pressing the button in salon fresh air starts to move, the conditioner compressor is activated (if has been switched off), and air stream goes on having blown in glasses, - on the control panel the indicator «» is activated.

After the condensate will be completely removed from a surface of glasses system it is necessary to return in mode AUTO by button "AUTO" pressing, «OFF» or repeated pressing the button «».

Choice of a high-speed mode of functioning of the fan

The switch allows to make a choice of one of five fixed modes: AUTO and four high-speed.

At a choice of mode AUTO speed of rotation of the fan gets out climate control system automatically, depending on air temperature in salon, ambient temperatures, intensity of a sunlight etc.

The further pressing button "OUT.TEMP" lead to gradual increase in speed of rotation of the fan then, - to return to mode AUTO.

Compulsory activation К/В

 At temperature of external air more low 0°С compressor K/V switching-off do not occur.

If запотевание glasses occurs in mode AUTO of system of the climate control, condensate removal can be made by pressing button "А/С". Thus there is compressor K/V activation, and on the control panel the indicator of the corresponding maintenance («А/С») is highlighted. Return to mode AUTO can be made by means of button "AUTO".

Choice of directions of distribution of an air stream

The choice of directions of distribution of an air stream is made by means of switch "MODE" on the system control panel. Possibility of a choice of one of four variants of distribution of air is provided:

Air giving on obverse level;
Air giving on obverse level and in foot wells;
Air giving in foot wells;
Air giving in foot wells and on having blown in a windscreen.

Choice of a mode of air circulation

The push-button switch «» on the control panel of system of the climate control allows to choose one of two possible modes: the giving mode in salon of fresh air and a circulation mode, - on the control panel is highlighted the corresponding indicator («» or «»)

The circulation mode allows to carry out fast warming up of salon in cold weather, and also prevents hit in the car of badly smelling air.

 Inclusion of a mode of circulation for long time can lead запотеванию glasses, besides, in view of limitation of volume the air closed in salon quickly becomes filched. Do not forget to disconnect a mode of the closed circulation when need for it disappears!

Choice of a temperature mode

 It is recommended without dependence from a season always to establish temperature +25°С. The chosen value remains even after ignition deenergizing, however switching-off of the storage battery leads to dump of adjusting parametres.


The rotary handle of a choice of a temperature mode is located in the left part of the control panel.

Handle rotation in a direction clockwise leads to increase in adjusting value of temperature which then will be automatically supported in salon by climate control system. For reduction of adjusting value of temperature it is necessary to turn the handle counter-clockwise. The range of change of the entrance data lies in limits from +18°С to +32°С, the step of change of temperature makes 0.5°С.

The climate control system continues to function in a mode of the maximum return until the preset value of temperature of air in salon will be reached. Told means that attempts of acceleration of process of warming up/cooling of salon by change of adjusting value of temperature of sense have no.

Information gauges

In climate control system information gauges are used some. Gauges possess high sensitivity and casual handling of them can lead to infringement of serviceability of functioning of all system. Try not to subject gauges to shock loadings, avoid hit on them of a moisture, do not put on the panel of devices in the locations of gauges extraneous subjects.

The gauge of intensity of a sunlight is built in the panel of devices close with дефлектором a slot-hole nozzle blowing a windscreen.

The gauge of temperature of air in salon is located with functioning of system of the climate control in the left bottom corner of the control panel.

The gauge of temperature of external air is behind a decorative lattice of a radiator.
