If it was the starter that was replaced, did the AC stop working immediately after the replacement or a few days later? If immediate, check the harness to the clutch. If a day or week after, the AC failure is likely unrelated.

FYI the battery and electrical system are involved in operating EVERYTHING on the car, including the AC system.
A/C stopped working immediately after the new battery...I mistyped and didn't even notice it. I got the starter a few weeks later, but the battery stopped blowing cold air after I had the new battery installed.

It blows air, just not cold air.
