temperature gauge question and a/c

In my opinion, you should feel cool air from the A/C within a minute
of begin engaged.  The only delay in climate control operation I am
familiar with is in cold weather where the production of heat in the
cabin is delayed until the engine reaches a certain minimum operating
temp.  I do not know if this applies to your car specifically, however
it is not relevant to the current question.

Which model do you have?

I had a 3 mile commute and ran the a/c.  Why not?  With a properly
operating a/c system, it will offer comfort even if it does not bring
the cabin temp to the set temperature.
