n.— «Then came air conditioning, also known as aircon. This uses an air-conditioner to chill (and dehumidify) the air coming into the cabin. The end result is that when it’s turned on, and the temperature gauge is set to cold, you get air into the car which is actually cooler than the outside air.» —“Jargon Buster” by Joe Toner Galway First (Ireland) Apr. 30, 2007.
