05 Renegade AC issues

After searching the site ive noticed that AC issues are very common in these Jeeps. Here is what my wifes is doing. NE help i truly apperciate

Recently decided to fix the ac. it blew hot air. i bypassed low pressure sensor and the compressor clutch still didnt kick in. Figured i needed a clutch\compressor. Took it to a shop for replacement under my extended service plan. they charged system and tested for leaks. clutch does kick in and it does pump some cold air. Not enough tho. espically at idle it bearly blows ne cold air. at operating speed it seems to get colder but not sufficent to cool the entire passenger compartment. Shop is being *******s, i paided them and vehicle isnt fixed.
Is it the compressor? thanks

AC issues is common on any vehicle,nature of the system.

At idle the AC will not work real well,not as compared doing 50mph+.If your getting at least a 30 degree drop in temp at the center vent(s) with the AC on max then your system is working like it is supposed to.Ambient temp and humidity plays a huge role in AC performance,more humid less effective the AC will be.
