Default AC not working

Not sure what the issue is here. I've taken it to the stealership as well as our local mechanic that we usually use, and they both kind of gave us a . They recharged the air compressor and refilled it with refridgerant, and it worked for a few weeks, but then slowly died again. So they filled/recharged it again and put a UV dye in it this time so they can tell where the leak is, but they know it's not in any of the hoses in the engine bay because they vacuumed it all out through one of the hoses and there was no leak. So they think it's the evaporator. I have no idea a) what that is or b) what that does. All I know is they said it's ~$800 to fix it. So I was wondering if there's a cheaper solution. Is it something I could do myself? Or is it so involved that I'd be better off just forking over the cash?
