I made a remarkable discovery today. That innocuous little button with the stylised picture of a snowflake on my car dashboard, that I hitherto thought served only to speed up the demisting of my windscreen, actually has another purpose.
Apparently, if it’s warm, pressing this button actually helps cool the car down. It’s called air conditioning…
Actually, I knew all this already, it’s just living in Scotland, it doesn’t get used very often (other than to demist the windscreen). Perversely, I tend to use it more frequently in winter when I’m trying to defrost the car.
Today, however, it actually got used for its (supposedly) main purpose. I wonder how often that’ll happen this summer?
