Leaking air vents?

Alright I really didn't notice this until about a month ago, when I'm driving or even sitting still I believe there is heat coming from both the upper and lower vents of the car when everything is off. it's really hot at times even with the windows down and some times I don't notice it. Any clue?

The air intake is actually under the trailing edge of the hood. It gets the hot air from the operating engine. It is frustrating because the outside air can be cool enough not to use AC but with the warm Air from the engine, you need to.

I guess it's a way for the heat from the engine to escape. I noticed heat coming from under the dash when driving. I just turn on the ac for the vents to blow on my feet.
