if t he outer vents are still blowing cold, then it has nothing to do with your AC system. Its probably the flap in the vents that switches from the cold vent to the hot air vent is not closing all the way and as the car warms up, warmer air is flowing through the middle vents.

Some of those flaps are controlled by a plastic turn-pulley connected to a cable...
