A/C Problems

Whenever I turn on my A/C it first comes out really hot. I have it on 60 degrees. It takes about 20 seconds for it to cool down. I usually turn it on when the car has been on for a while. Is there a reason it does this??

The compressor doesn't engage until you turn on the a/c so the air STARTS cooling down at that point.

20 seconds sounds right for getting the air cool then routing it into the passenger compartment.

Oh ok i was just making sure it wasn't anything else. Usually it just starts off at a cool temperature thats why i was freaking out.

With a black car in Mississippi, it may start taking longer than 20 seconds to cool the further into summer you get . . .
