Do you use the water heater when you use just cold water?

If water is only drawn from the cold faucet, then no, the water heater is not involved. However, if water is drawn from the hot faucet- even for a few seconds- hot water IS withdrawn from the heater, and fresh cold water drawn in to be heated- even if the hot water did not make it all the way through the pipe to the faucet- and the water heater will work to heat that fresh cold water.

What happens when hot water is on top of cold water?

Hot water is lighter then cold water so it would stay up on top of cold water till both waters naturalize to the same temp. a good example is a water heater and (if its not to old) open your drain at the bottom of the water heater and if your dip tube is still good you should always get cold water out of it even if the water heater is on and your water heater pressure is on.

What makes your windows keep fogging up even with the defroster on a 1992 Bonneville?

Your heater core is leaking in it's housing box and blowing moist air through the heater/defroster. Try bardall radiator stop leak. If no help, install new heater core. Chuck.

Where is the defroster in a car?

the defroster is actually your a/c. it doesn't run much when it's cold outside but it works with your heater to remove the moisture from inside the car. blowing warm dry air on the windshield. just like it removes the moisture (humidity) from inside the car in the summer. the difference is the temp. you have it on. even if the a/c don't work, the heater will still do the job, just not quite as well.

Ac lines are all cold and sweaty but blowing only hot air inside what causes this?

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that was doing the same thing. The problem was a faulty ac/heater switch. You put the switch on ac, compresser engages, lines get cold and frosty, but only hot air is coming out of the vents, because the switch has changed back to heater even though it shows ac. The cure is to have the center panel which contains the ac/heater switch, fan speed switch and temperature control replaced.

2004 Chevy Tahoe not blowing air from AC fuse AC good. thanks?

Is is blowing hot air on the drivers side, or nothing at all? If it is blowing hot air even though you have the thermostat set on cold - it could be the heat actuator. It will occasionally do this after about 75000 miles or so. Mine started at 114000 miles and if you turn it off and turn it back on - it will start blowing cold again...$400 repair. Hope this helps.

Does cold weather affect a cold?

Not really in any big way. Being out in cold weather does not cause the common cold. While a noticeable increase in the numbers of common colds and the flu season happen during the winter, it is the microorganisms that cause the common cold and flu and not the temperature. However, cold weather could make certain symptoms worse. For instance, a runny nose can be worse when out in the cold even if you don't have a common cold viral infection. Being out when you have a cold adds to the constant blowing and wiping of your nose. That can cause the skin to become raw and dry which allows the cold temperature to accentuate the soreness.

What is it called when an animal maintains a constant internal temperature even when it is cold outside?

It is called homeostasis (internal environment maintained at a constant level) or thermostasis (internal heat maintained at a constant temperature). The overall name for the processes by which temperature is controlled is thermoregulation.

What is homeostasis?

Homeostasis is the maintenance of a constant internal environment in organisms even when there are external changes. For example, the body is able to maintain its same temperature of 98.6 even when it is really cold.
