I don't understand why you would run the AC in the winter. The atrophying part makes sense but that should be done periodically and preferably automatically as I can't be bothered. But When the temperatures drop, the moisture in the air also drops. Cold air cannot hold as much moisture in the air as hot air and therefore, the AC being mostly a dehumidifier would be rather ineffective because there is not a whole lot of moisture to remove to begin with.
The car AC from what I've been told is the same as the house AC, and when the temperatures are cold, the liquid freon doesn't compress into gas as easily as it does when it's hot, so wouldn't you wear out your compressor awfully fast if you ran it such cold temperatures?
Someone please explain why my car insists on running the AC in the winter? I have the automatic feature and invariably the AC will go on at some point when the "Full Auto" setting is on.
So, what am I missing here?
