1995 Honda Accord Panel Light Question?

Since Honda's website does not allow for feedback I figured I'd ask here:

Whenever I select either the full windshield defrost setting or the mix setting (that bleeds air to both the windshield & the floor vent, the AC light (on the ac on/off button) illuminates...even in the dead of winter??? I have always been afraid that the ac compressor is thus engaged & wasting fuel when I only need heat, not ac.
(At first I thought maybe it was controling outside air, but there is a separate selector switch to allow/disallow outside air from coming into the passenger cabin)
My question: What is the purpose of the ac button illuminating when it's freezing out & you are only calling for heat?

It removes the moisture from the heat so your windshield does not fog up. Your A/C compressor is not running. It sends the air through the A/C evaporator. It's normal.
