What is always cold the air or the temp on the display?

The air will always be cold until the car builds some heat. It uses the coolant to produce heat. So no heat in the coolant no heat in the air. Usually takes about 5 minutes of driving before it starts pushing hot air.

As far as the temp setting. I leave min at 73 and every time I start the car it says 73.
