Default A/C Issues

Hey guys,

I am a long time lurker of this page but have never actually posted. I have an 08 tC and haven't had A/C for about 6 years now.
I finally have gotten the A/C to work at high RPMs but it is blowing warm air and overheating my car at idle. Here is what I have replaced in the last month....

Water Pump
A/C Expansion Valve
Radiator (found leak where upper hose connected)
Radiator hoses (upper and lower)
Coolant temp sensor (2ish years ago)

I replaced the compressor and serpentine belt about 3 years ago because I thought that was my original issue. It ended up not fixing my A/C .
So I wouldn't think I need to change that again as it is only 3 years old. I can also hear both fans come on. I think it was the expansion valve that finally got it to at-least blow cold air at high RPMs.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
