I have A/C, paid a bunch to get it fixed..

I never use it though, I always put my windows down. It's comfortable down here in FL.

Turn on the defrost: notice it blows out hot air..
No. As far as I can tell, the air conditioning system does not affect defrost.

I've tried to built in a complete A/C system, but I failed
It's a hard job to do! (probably also to remove the system)
