Hi, the weather has suddenly got warmer, & when I start my 2010 RX the a/c is starting on recirculating. Is this normal, to bring internal temp down quicker, or am I missing something?

cheers Brian

Hi Brian. It is normal.

Yep, perfectly normal.

You should also notice that, because hot air rises and cold air falls, the airflow will start with the face vents so that it cools the cabin as it falls. In winter you'll notice the opposite; warm air will come from the footwell first so that it warms the cabin as it rises.
