Aircon, in winter, still dries the air and keeps the seals lubricated so don't turn it off.
I've always considered Honda AC poor. On my Lexus IS200, if I dialed in 21 then it dropped the interior temp to 21.
If I dialled in 21 on all 3 of my Civics it never got below 25 with the car in the sun but on the move. To get the temp down to 24 or less I had to dial in 19 or often less.
Those are with new Civics so presumably a top notch AC.
I remember my first Xantia with AC. That used to give me 'brain freeze', like biting too hard into an ice lolly, if I turned it down too low and didn't point it away.
