I think that is how it is supposed to work I: Unless you have an aircon the centre vents are supposed to give you fresh air whilst the van is heated by the other vents. Great for long journeys when you want to be warm but need fresh air to keep you alert.

Yep, what they have said. The centre vents are fresh air only. Sounds odd I know but sometimes I find it very good to have a little fresh air as well as having the heating on.

You do get used to it! T:

The centre fresh air vents are a great system and I really like them! My van has no air con but it has fresh air vents in the middle which are very useful indeed. On the other hand my Caravelle has aircon but no fresh air vents! Such is life!

Makes perfect sense to have fresh air to your face and hot air to everywhere else...why would you want hot air blowing on you face, drying your eyes and making you tired...:*

remember when i bought my van, driving it home, only about ten miles, the things that went through my mind when i noticed the cold centre blowers, lol, aw naw, it must be the head gasket, i have been ripped off, the temp gauge hasn't moved lol, i was 2 minutes from my house when the temp gauge moved then google about the heaters:D
