Heat is free energy given off by the motor, no power robbed at all, UNLESS you are running the defrost mode since that will kick on the A/C compressor. A/C will rob some power as you are adding more drag to the motor by running the compressor, but in 100* heat it's worth it. Remember to turn off your A/C when you turn of your engine, it's not good to leave it on ALL the time.
