I use my aircon in the winter in combination with the heater.
It stops the car getting 'stuffy' and helps keep me awake when sitting in stationary traffic.
The Older I get the Better I Was!
I do exactly the same; my aircon is always running on my cars and I simply adjust the temperature. Further to that I swap around where it's coming out, on a hot day straight at my face, on a cooler day I have the air directed at screen and toes, with the driver's window cracked an inch for fresh air inflow to the face.
The idea of A/C draining power is largely untrue. A properly charged aircon system doesn't place a lot of load on the compressor as it is neither trying to compress liquid, nor trying to recycle inadequate amounts of gas. Wind drag from driving with the windows well down, quite possibly chews more fuel.

Aircon also clears the screen quicker when it is fogged up.
So where does this bit go then ?
