The problem you are describing sound like you may have a issue with the evaporator core freezing which can affect the amount of airflow through the evaporator. I would start with having the systems pressure checked as well as making sure the compressor is cycling when it should to avoid the core freezing up. Normal operating pressure should be right at 30 to 35 PSI on the low side and 200 to 210 PSI on the high side.
