The only reason it won't blow hot air is because the water is not getting to the heater core. Check to see if you have a heater control valve in one of the two lines to the heater core. If so check to be sure that is is opening and closing. If it won't open then you get no water flow in to the heater core.

If the heater core is not damaged or leaking ie: if you don't see coolant on the INSIDE of your windshield or coolant on the floor inside the car then chances are you may just need to BLEED the radiator.
remove radiator cap
Fill coolant resovoir to the cold line if the engine is cold from sitting overnight.
Start engine with cap off
Wait till engine gets hot
While waiting you will see a big gurgle of air bubbles come out and the coolant level will drop
Fill the radiator with more coolant to compensate.
When the fans come on and it stops gurgling air install the radiator cap
You are done
Watch the coolant level for the next few days and top off in the resovoir as needed to keep it filled.
Your heat should be very hot now providing you installed the correct oem thermostat correctly.
Hope this helps
