The Comfort Controls of Chevrolet Cars

Different Chevrolet vehicles have different comfort control systems yet a majority of these features are quite similar in most of the car models manufactured by the brand. Here we mention the most common of the comfort control systems present in the Chevrolet vehicles and even how they are to be operated.

 With these systems, you can control the heating, cooling and ventilation in your vehicle. The systems work best if you keep your windows closed while using them.

 Chevrolet System Controls:

 Fan Knob

The knob with the fan symbol in Chevrolet cars selects the force of air you want. To turn the fan off, turn the knob to OFF.

 Temperature Control

 If your system in the Chevrolet car does not have the auxiliary temperature control option, the right knob changes the temperature of the air coming through the system. Turn this knob toward red (clockwise) for warmer air. Turn it toward blue (counterclockwise) for cooler air.

 If your system in the Chevrolet car does have the auxiliary temperature control option, the center levers change the temperature of the air coming through the system. The DRIV lever sets the temperature for the driver and rear seat passengers, and the PASS lever sets the temperature for the front seat passenger.

 Mode Knob

 The left knob has several settings to control the direction of air flow. For each setting, set the temperature to a comfortable setting.

Air Conditioning

 On very hot days, open the windows of the Chevrolet vehicle long enough to let hot inside air escape. This reduces the time the compressor has to run, which should helpful economy.

 For quick cool-down on very hot days, use MAX with the temperature control all the way in the blue area. If this setting is used for long periods of time, the air in your vehicle may become too dry.

 For normal cooling on hot days, use A/C with the temperature control in the blue area. The system of the Chevrolet car will bring in outside air and cool it.

 On cool but sunny days, the sun may warm your upper body, but your lower body may not be warm enough. You can use BI-LEVEL with the temperature control in the middle. The Chevrolet car system will bring in outside air and direct it to your upper body, while sending slightly warmer air to your lower body. You may notice this temperature difference more at sometimes than others.

Heating

 On cold days use FLOOR with the temperature control all the way in the red area. The Chevrolet vehicle system will bring in outside air, heat it and send it to the floor ducts.

 Ventilation

 For mild outside temperatures when little heating or cooling is needed, use VENT to direct outside air through your vehicle. Your vehicle also has the flow-through ventilation system described later in this section.

Defogging and Defrosting Windows

 Your Chevrolet car system has two settings for clearing the front and side windows. To defrost the windows quickly, use DEFROST with the temperature knob all the way in the red area. To warm passengers while keeping the windows clean, use DEFOG.
