Does my 2012 Ford Escape have a heater control valve?

My car has 28000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there, thank you for asking about your 2012 Ford Escape. To answer your question, no, your vehicle does not have a heater control valve. Hot coolant will continually move through the heater core as long as the engine is running. The heat is isolated within the hear core box to keep the interior air from heating up when the heater is not in use.
