When you want to operate without the A/C the air out of the vents when you start up has been baking in the sun.  So when it is weather where I know I can live with just my windows open I turn on the A/C for about 30 seconds.  It cools down the vents and the ducts quickly.  I then turn off the A/C and can drive comfortably with the energy robbing A/C off.

Good tip.  It does stay pretty warm in the ducts when first starting. 


I also like to use the remote now to remotely have all the windows roll down before I get to the car.  Really helps cool down the car fast too.
