I use the air conditioning setting all year long. So anytime the outside temperature is above 35°F the a/c compressor is running. This dehumidifies the air coming into the passenger's compartment and prevents window fogging. When using the defroster to defog the windshield the temperature setting needs to be on hot. Are you losing coolant? If so, I'd suspect a leaking heater core. As far as wipers go, get original equipment ones from the dealer. Yes, they're more expensive but they're also much better and last a lot longer. HTH. -Jim
