You might want to use it a little more often, winter included. The refrigerant contains lubricant, and not having that circulate on a regular basis can lead to premature failure of an A/C. A/C is very useful in quick defogging (you can have the heater on at the same time), and I find while I scrape the car off in the winter, I can have it on for extra electrical load to help the engine generate some heat. Seems to warm up a little quicker when I start driving.
