BMW Air Conditioning System
When driving in your BMW 3 Series Sedan or i3 Hatchback, you’ll notice that many features have been designed to create the ultimate driving experience. The suspension, the interior, the engine, even the entertainment all come together to make your ride exceptional. However, on a scorching summer’s day or freezing winter’s night, nothing enhances your driving experience more than the BMW air conditioning system. BMW boasts an automatic air conditioning system that allows you to enjoy the ride at a comfortable temperature every day of the week, year round.
The BMW’s automatic climate control system allows individual adjustable settings to you and your passengers. When activated, the system channels fresh air from outside the vehicle, cools the air, reduces the humidity, and warms it again if necessary on a chilly day. The air temperature, the air quality, and volume of air can be controlled, whether the system is set to function manually or automatically. When set in automatic mode, the airflow and volume are controlled while the temperature is held constant at your selected setting.
When driving a BMW convertible, the convertible mode of the BMW air conditioning system settings are calculated, keeping in mind the sunshine, speed, and external temperature. The setting for the cabin is continuously adjusted to keep temperature constant. In a convertible and enclosed vehicle, the passengers and the driver can select individual preferences for air temperature. In the car, you will find separate air channels for the front and rear seats, plus an outlet in the B columns. Three main parts make up a BMW air conditioning system including the BMW AC Compressor, the evaporator, and the condenser.
The AC system is a closed loop with a high-pressure side as well as a low-pressure side. The compressor is the pump that is driven by a belt and attached to the crankshaft of the engine. When the refrigerant reaches the compressor, it is in gas form with a low-pressure. Once the refrigerant is inside the compressor, the belt drives the pump, which puts pressure on the gas and forces it to the condenser. As the refrigerant travels, it evaporates. This process draws the heat out of the surrounding air.
