Can you imagine how this is going to feel? Mr. Green
The next big thing for automotive interiors could be “climatized” seats, according to Andreas Brand, president and CEO of W.E.T. Automotive Systems Ltd. W.E.T. has developed two types of cooling systems to cool down automobile seats, adding to the already strong heated seat market. The heated seat market currently has penetrated about 20 to 25% of the automobile market, which took about 12 years to achieve. Brand believes that cooling seats will obtain the same level of market share in half the time. W.E.T. has two seat cooling systems: ComfortCools and ActiveCool.

The ComfortCool system uses a mechanical blower that draws ambient air from the seat, thus removing heat and moisture from the individual. It also works in conjunction with the heating system. The design of the system actually has a minimal impact on the seat design, making it a system that can be added to a seat after its design. The newer ActiveCool system uses two channels, one to blow cool air generated from a small ceramic-based solid-state unit inserted into the seat that works as a heat pump. Both units use what is called a “trim bag,” which is tailored to the design of the seat and fits between the foam and the outer fabric. This design allows for easy installation, which uses a bag, snap ring to attach to the blower, and the control unit, rather than using ducting through the seat and the channels in the foam to circulate the conditioned air.
