Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to determine why the AC blow warm air the first thing that you are going to need to do is to install a set of AC pressure gauges and read the system pressure, normal pressure on a full system needs to be right at 35 to 40 PSI on the low side and right at 200 to 225 PSI on the high side. Check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.

Start with checking the air mix door. You not charged anything unless you rate the service which you have not done. See the test steps in the link below.
