Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If it has operated the same since the vehicle was new then initial system performance is likely correct, but it shouldn't be warning up when you accelerate unless you're accelerating hard. Under certain conditions it will shut the compressor off under acceleration.

Do you have a vent thermometer to check actual temperature to see if it is initially out of range?

Can you estimate how far the throttle is open under acceleration when it warms up?

If it has been operating this way since new I'm assuming you've seen your dealer. What were their findings?
