Default Hot air coming from vents?

Hi I'm new here and have a question. I have an 05 GT 5 speed and I've noticed that when driving I am getting warm to hot air coming out of my air vents, primarily out of the 2 center vents. It only does this when I have the air shut off. If I put the a/c on it blows cold and blows hot when I put the heat on. The temperature gauge reads normal as well. Is there anything I should be worried about?

Sounds like the normal fresh air from the outside.....coming past the rear of the hood into the vents.

Fresh air coming in is hot, that's all.

Trick I learned on the '05: The trick to close those fresh air vents when driving with the windows down is to simply turn the MAX AC on for a couple secs... just long enough to have cold air coming through then turn off the AC. Viola, no more hot air... atleast until you power off the car and get back in... Then it will reset for some strange reason.

Why does it have to be my first car? No other car I've owned has done this and I've owned my mustang since 08 and it just started doing this this past winter.
