1997 Taurus GL

Hey all, hope someone can help. I recently bought my new to me 97 GL and the A/C blows real hard but does not blow cold. Now, before someones tries to tell me that it needs a charge, I checked and the system is charged.
Is there something else about the A/C system that would allow the system to blow like normal, but without the cold air.

Thanx in advance for the help

There are plenty of things to look at. When you say you know it's charged--did you add some? Have it professionally checked? More details please. An over charged system puts out warm air. Did you check to see of the compressor clutch is engaging? You could also have a clogged orifice tube.
