The AC will not run if the HVAC fan selector is set to off. The air you get will be a mixture of the external air temp + where the blend door is placed based on the temperature selector control. The hot part of the HVAC system is always heated once the car is up to temperature. It is the temp selector and the blend door that mixes the airflow from the hot and the cold (or ambient temperature if the AC is not running) side of the heater matrix.
Hope that is of some help
