How many times have you looked at something on your dash and went, “I don’t really know what the function of that button is.” For example, what is the purpose of the recirculation button?
Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center.
All too often with these hot summer days, wouldn’t it be wonderful to turn on the AC and have the entire vehicle filled with cold air inside? Hence, the recirculation button. Using this feature will recirculate the cool air from the AC and distribute it evenly throughout the vehicle.
Don’t mistake this for the button for the fresh air, that brings in the air from the outside into the vehicle. And you don’t want more of the warm air in the vehicle on that hot summer day, fighting against the air conditioning, trying to get it cool. FYI, using this button, also when there is exhaust from a vehicle in front of you, will prevent that from coming inside the car.
For those of you with a newer model vehicle, you may even have a moisture level sensor. These sensors detect the moisture level in the cabin of your vehicle and automatically switch between fresh air and recirculating air.
Another option for the older vehicles is rolling down the windows when you first start driving to help remove the hot air, anything you can do to speed up the process of cooling down the inside of your vehicle.
Stay cool on these hot summer days.
