Try revving the engine to around 2k rpm in neutral and see if a/c still cools.

Check your coolant level. Any engine temp issues? You could also have an air void in the coolant system. Have you had the system drained lately?

Drive like you mean it, keep the rubber side down.

I had assumed you were talking about the a/c so now it makes sense.

You have an air pocket stuck in the heater core. Normally this is a result of a coolant change or you simply ran your coolant low. Generally to remove the air pocket you would simply let the system warm up with the radiator cap off and let the thermostat open and close a couple times. This wont always work, so the other way of handling it is by doing this same thing but put the front end up on ramps so the vehicle is at an angle.

My mother had this same issue in her Dodge minivan after the radiator was replaced, every shop was trying the same tactics to to remove the air. Then someone decided to actually look at the system and found that the heater core hoses were hooked up backwards. This top level work was done by a shop in Vernon BC not me lol

Radiator caps have gone the way of the dodo bird.
