New Car Heater Control Valve in Hamilton

What is the car heater control valve?

New car heater valves Hamilton

In car heaters, hot engine coolant flows through the heater core. A heater fan pushes air through the car heater radiator core with hot engine coolant inside which enters your car’s interior through vents. The engine coolant in the car heater core allows the air to become warm as it passed through, providing heat for the inside of your car.

The car heater control valve controls the temperature of air entering your car. It does this by opening and closing, limiting the flow of engine coolant to the car heater core in accordance with the requested heater temperature.

Symptoms of a faulty car heater control valve:

Car heating not working correctly – A faulty car heater control valve may not be able to control engine coolant flow properly. This can result in your heater not always producing hot air, or hot air coming and going. If the car heater control valve is stuck open then the cars heater can put out air constantly, even in summer!

Heater not producing warm air – A broken heater control valve can permanently restrict the flow of coolant to the heater core. This prevents the air that passes through the heater core from becoming heated. This means you get no heat from your car heater in winter. 

Leaking coolant – A cracked or damaged heater control valve can result in engine coolant leaks occurring. When engine coolant leaks from your vehicle, the risk of your engine overheating increases. For this reason, it is important that coolant leaks are repaired quickly in order to prevent engine damage.
