Most likely you do not have enough refrigerant in the system. A car of this age is likely leaking it. Locate the air conditioner compressor, it is a pulley driven by a belt, the outer part of the pul lead may be turning but the center part is probably stationary, the compressor will not kick on if the refrigerant is low. There are stopped leak type refrigerants available, usually they do not work, I have had some success with the $25.00 stuff, or there is some that has an ultraviolet dye in it and by shining a black light on it you can see by the below where it is leaking usually at a hose connection and there are all rings that you can replace that seal them. If you're compressor is turning you may be low on refrigerant but not out of it. You can add a can of sealant type refrigerant and probably do OK. Other causes of the compressor not turning can be a bad relay switched that turns it on. Or simply a worn out seized up compressor, or the clutch mechanism that engages it is not working. For the relay you can find a book on where it is or ask the dealer, and substitute a similar one like a horn relay to see if that is the problem. If so buy a new one.

I have a 98 Honda crv. About a month and a half ago I had the ac compressor replaced and all charged up. This is the first summer I have had this car so don't know how well the air works in them. It...

There are a few things to check before I recommend a 2nd opinion. If you have a cabin air filter, check that it is not clogged up with debris or very dirty. Also check that the electric fan comes on as soon as the ac is commanded on. It has 2 speeds (high and low) and it will automatically go to high speed when the AC compressor cuts on to cool off the condenser. Also check that there isn't anything blocking airflow from the front of your vehicle to your radiator/condenser area. Last thing to check would be taking it to a shop that knows what they are doing (it'll probably cost $60+) and make sure your system is fully charged and have them add dye if it isn't so they can locate the leak.
