Default AC not working

Okay so ever since I bought this car the AC hasn't worked. Which was fine when it was cold here but now it's getting close to 80+ everyday and driving is hell.All it does at any setting is blow hot hot air. It's like it's not even trying to cool it. No other issues like a wierd smell or anything like I've heard from others.

I was told that it had the correct pressure and everything and I should replace the compressor so I got a kit that had the compressor, accumulator, and evap valve I believe. I replaced the compressor and accumulator and the o-rings on those lines but not the valve.

Got it recharged and it still doesn't work. So my guess would be the evaporator or condenser. Dont know how to troubleshoot AC so I'm lost.

Does anyone know any way to troubleshoot my issue? I'm at a loss right now and dont really want to take the dash out for the evaporator core if I dont have to.

Does the compressor turn on when you press the AC button?

It's either the compressor itself, the condenser, or theres a leak in the line. If you purged the lines and re-charged the system correctly then those are the only things it can be from the information provided
