The air conditioner is not blowing cold air.

Your air conditioning system may need to be charged and have a leak fixed on it. Over time, hoses may become damaged and O-rings need to be replaced in the system. The compressor also may start leaking out of the front seal. I would have a technician from YourMechanic come out and perform a leak check and recharge the AC system if needed.
