Default heat and a/c wont change from windshield to vents

my heat and a/c don't work well at all. when i turn either one on they usually only blow through the windshield and they don't stay hot or cold. i recharged the a/c already and that didn't solve anything. it seems like when the vehicle is in park the a/c or heat works ok for a few minutes. also when you start driving the a/c gets hot and the heat gets cold very quickly. also when the heat or a/c are in the windshield setting or any other setting it takes many minutes of driving for the heat or a/c to switch to a different setting(example:windshield to vents or vice versa). my radiator and heater core have been flushed and i have a fairly new thermostat. i have also changed the switch that controls the heat and a/c settings. what can i do to fix this because winter is coming soon?
