The air in our vehicle has stopped blowing cold air for some time. We have replaced the A/C compressor, switches, and the condenser. But it is still not blowing cold air. The A/C compressor would turn on and turn back off until we replaced he battery, now it stays on. But only blows hot air. I don’t know what it could be next. We have taken it to a mechanic and had everything switched professionally and it has been recharged when needed.

Welcome to 2CarPros.

If the AC is properly charged, the compressor is engaging, but you still get warm air I suspect the issue may be related to what is called a blend air door actuator. This actuator opens and closes a door to the condenser which is what gets cold and cools the interior.

If the door doesn't open to allow air to pass the evaporator, no cold air will enter the vehicle. Please keep in mind, I am suggesting this because you had the work professionally done and the system appears to be working.

Here is a link that shows in general how the blend air door actuator is replaced and explains common symptoms:
