Aircon isn't a magic button that allows a car with a cold engine to produce heat.

It will assist in getting the engine up to temperature marginally quicker than by running without it (by placing a greater load on the engine, hence it will have to work harder, therefore heat up quicker) but the heat itself comes from the engine being up to temperature.
