When to use the Recirculation Button 

The best times to use the Recirculation Button is during the summer or when the weather is hot, and you need to use A/C. The Recirculation Button recirculates the cool air from the A/C. The longer the button is turned on, the more the air in your vehicle will cool down. If you do not have the Recirculation Button, what will happen is the air conditioning will have to work harder to keep the vehicle cool because there will be a constant stream of warm air coming in, which will lower your fuel efficiency. 

When not to use the Recirculation Button 

During the winter, you want the fresh air to come through your engine to your vents. This helps your windows defrost a lot quicker. If you have the Recirculation Button on, you will make the inside of your vehicle more humid and cause your windows to become foggy.
