heater

heater
A device which gives off heat. In automobiles, it heats the interior of the vehicle. In a water-cooled engine the coolant is channelled through the heater in the passenger compartment. Some cars used an electric or gasoline heater because they had no engine coolant (e.g., the Volkswagen Beetle).
