- How much does it cost to replace a heater core?
The cost to replace a heater core can vary depending on the location of the heater and the amount of labour involved. A Natrad technician can give you a quote on a replacement heater core, including the cost of the part and the labour involved.
- How do you know if your heater core is failing?
If there is no heat inside the car, and the defroster doesn’t clear foggy windows, the heater core has most likely become clogged, or you may have a coolant leak. It’s important to get the heater checked, as toxic fumes from a coolant leak can make you feel ill. A Natrad technician can diagnose the heater problem and recommend the best solutions.
- Can you repair a heater core?
If there’s a small leak in the heater core, it might be possible to seal and fix it. However larger leaks or corrosion mean that heater core replacement is required. A Natrad technician can perform a cooling system inspection to determine whether your heater core can be repaired.
- What does the heater core do?
The heater core is a small radiator that forms part of your vehicle’s heating and defrosting functions. It removes heat from the coolant and sends warm air into the cabin of the vehicle and to the windscreen when you turn on the heater or defroster.
- How can I look after the heater core?
Regularly flushing the cooling system helps to prevent clogging of the heater core, so ensure your cooling system is regularly serviced at your local Natrad workshop.
