Learned something new, eco mode affects blower speed

During the recent cold spell, came to realize that if left in eco mode, the climate control blower speed is held back which causes the cabin to take a little longer to warm up! Even if set to high temperatures, switching from eco to other modes immediately bumped the fan speed up.

After 4+ yrs, I had never realized that until recently. I guess even with frigid temps, the fuel economy trumps everything else in eco mode.

As someone who usually starts off in ECO, I have noted that. In the same manner, it affects the cooling system, which makes sense from a gas mileage perspective.
