When to use the air-recirculation button

  • When using AC
  • In summer & hot weather
  • In dense traffic to stop pollution entering the cabin

If you’re driving in a heatwave you should turn on your AC & your air-recirculation ON to ensure your air-con gets as cold as possible as quickly as possible.

If you don’t switch the air-recirculation button on then your air-con will be constantly cooling warm air from outside your vehicle and will have to work much harder, putting more stress on the blower & air compressor.

It works by recirculating the cool air you get from your A/C when you first turn it on. The longer it’s on for, the cooler your vehicle will get! If you don’t use it, the car will use the air from the outside that is a lot warmer, and your A/C will work harder and continuously to cool the hot air.

If your AC has to work harder, you’ll increase fuel consumption and your cabin won’t reach its optimum level of coldness from the air-con system. You will also be putting undue wear-and-tear on your A/C compressor.
