When To Use The Car Recirculation Button

Lots of people out there that never use the recirculation button because they just don’t know what it can do. Read on to learn more.

Using the Recirculation button helps get your car as cool as possible when it’s hot outside and you have the A/C on. It recirculates the kind-of-cool air that you get from the A/C when you first turn it on, and the longer it’s on, the cooler you car gets until it’s as cool as the system can possibly be. (If your A/C doesn’t get very cold even with the Recirculation button pressed, get your car to the shop right away, there’s likely a problem.) If you use Fresh Air – the air from outside that’s much warmer in the summer, the air conditioning must work continuously to cool the hot air from the outside when pulling it into the vehicle, so it’s definitely not ideal. You are also putting undue wear-and-tear on your A/C compressor and getting less fuel economy as a result. There is a chance, however, that the Recirculation button is missing on your car. Many newer models are equipped with sensors that monitor your in-cabin air moisture levels and switch automatically between Recirculated and fresh air, so don’t stress if you don’t see Recirculation or Fresh Air buttons on your mode.

In Summer, roll down your windows for a bit when you first get going to flush out all of that super heated, stuffy air that’s built up in your car from sitting in the sun. Even if it’s just for half a block, you’ll have a jump start on cooling Old Bessie down to a comfortable temperature as soon as possible. In Winter, hit your A/C button when you first start the car to help clear the windows faster. The A/C system de-humidifies air by nature, so it will shorten the time it takes. Don’t worry, your heater will still warm up as it should, just make sure it’s set on HOT!
