The heater functions in accordance with the Joule principle: When electricity flows through the film, it comes across a natural resistance between the individual nanoparticles. These “collisions” generate heat. Conventional electric resistance heaters of the type used in electric cars, also make use of this principle.
Do electric cars have air conditioning?
In traditional vehicles, the engine provides the power for the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system.
