How Do Heated/Cooled Seats Work?

1 minuteread

Cooled Seats:

Cooled (or air-conditioned) seats work by confining cooled air directly within the seat where the passenger is seated. Different car makers achieve this in numerous ways, but here is that the most typical method:

  • The seat is formed with more porous material than traditional car seats, which are made to permit air to flow through them
    • The porous material of the seat by itself allows your body to breathe, making it feel cooler and fewer sweaty
    • Multiple fans are put within the seat to supply air circulation.
    • The air from the fans blows through a diffusion layer to spread the cool air throughout the seating material, cooling the entire surface.
    • The cooling air from the fans also serves to hold the warmth from the surface of your body away, instead of trapping it as traditional car seats do.
    The advantage of these seats is that they use energy to chill the passenger more efficiently than traditional car aircon, which improves the car’s fuel efficiency and reduces its emissions.


Heated Seats:

Heated seats, meanwhile, use the identical technology as electric blankets or other appliances and gadgets that use electricity to make heat. It uses a protracted strip of a component through the fabric of the seat called a resistor that heats up when an electrical current is run through it.

The way heated seat work implies that the longer the seat warmer is left on, the warmer it’ll get… even to the purpose of being extremely uncomfortable for the person sitting on that. This is often why most cars that have a seat warmer also include a sort of thermostat which can allow you to line the amount of warmth that the seat can reach.
