Parking heater pumps are designed to heat the engine compartment during cold weather prior to starting the car. The parking heater can heat the engine without the engine being started while using a very small amount of fuel. Parking heaters can easily be purchased online for most types of vehicle and installed personally or fitted by an aftermarket fitter. Particularly in cold climates, this component is a very useful addition to any vehicle. The parking heater component is a robust and long-lasting part that is a welcome addition to any car.
The principle on which a parking heater works is the heating of the element from inside the device. The energy is supplied from an outside source and then starts to heat the device. Some parking heaters can be operated with a remote control and activated before entry into the vehicle to allow for the heating of the engine compartment to take place. The parking heater works by the pump causing a small amount of fuel to be drawn from the fuel tank and injected into the heating chamber. Air is also drawn into the heating chamber and, just as happens in a normal combustion chamber, the air fuel mix ignites once the heating element reaches the correct temperature.
The coolant that circulates around the device is slowly warmed and this creates the warmth needed for the heating of the engine. Buying a parking heater online is as easy as inputting your vehicle details, such as make, model and engine capacity, into the desired field and selecting the appropriate parking heater for your car. The benefit of purchasing online is that the entire purchase can be done from the comfort of your own home.
