Air con issues

Purchased my latest civic around 2 months ago and noticed the air con not blowing cold air when warm which is not that often here in the north east! Took it kwik fit and paid the 49 which worked. Also replaced the relay to the mitsuba. One thing I noticed was I couldn't hear the compressor when the air con was on though cold as ice so thought nothing of it.

1 month later no cool air.

Is it normal for there to be no noticeable sound when air con is on as my previous Civic was very noticeable when on with a change in engine tone?

How can I best tell the compressor is coming on as had a look and can't seem to see much i.e. clutch?

Not sure what to do next back to kwik fit, air con specialist, try another relay or have a mess on myself.

Any advice much appreciated as can't take the heat when the sun shines.

When car is running you should hear click when compressor is on and vents start blowing in engine bay. If not then maybe compressor clutch is problem or you have a leak
