Besides, what is the fastest way to heat up your car?
Your heater will reach usefultemperaturefaster if your engine heats upfaster, as ittakes its heat directly from the engine(usually by waterheated by the engine block) - and theengine block heatsup faster under load, so: turn on frontand rear windscreenheaters. turn on lights.
One may also ask, is it necessary to warm up your car? Auto experts today say that you should warm upthecar no more than 30 seconds before you start drivinginwinter. "The engine will warm up faster being driven,"theEPA and DOE explain. Indeed, it is better to turnyourengine off and start it again than to leave itidling.
Subsequently, question is, why is my car blowing out cold air when the heat is on?
Hot coolant from the engine passes through a heatercore,which looks and functions a lot like a small radiator, and ablowermotor forces air through it. It's also the reasonthat aplugged heater core, stuck thermostat, or air in thecoolingsystem can all cause a car's heater toblowcold.
How long does a car heater take to warm up?
You want to do it for about 30 seconds (a minute ifyouhave an older car), as that will allow theheatercore to produce warm air. After that, you canbegin yourdrive and turn on your air, which should be nice andtoasty bythen.
