Default Common a/c leak points

Are there any? After refilling the system a few days ago it now blows out hot air, leading me to believe there is a pretty severe leak. Autozone sells leak detection kits (uv light, o-rings, & goggles I think), but they are like $50. Are there any points maybe under the car I should be checking? It sucks when it's 100+ degrees and you have to wear a suit to work.

The line from the compressor to the condensor goes bad. If it's wet, there ya go. Condensors go back when there's rocks and objects puncture it(obvious, but still a good spot to look). Compressor snout(that connects compressor to clutch). A/C line that goes behind the intercooler. If you have an aftermarket intercooler(or bigger one for that matter), then it could have rubbed a hole in it. If you find anything wet, that's where the leak's gonna be.
