There is a switch somewhere in the engine compartment, probably vacuum actuated, that increases the engine idle when you turn on the A/C. This may be not working, but may also be only part of the problem. Give your car a complete tune up and check for trouble codes to be sure your car is running optimally and been properly maintained.
