Unless I'm missing something in what you said, air conditioners are supposed to blow out cool air, rather than warm air. Or does the air just feel cooler than what you had the thermostat or comfort control set on? If that's the case, turn the comfort control or thermostat Up a bit.
It sounds like you have a unit called a heat pump. When a heat pump unit is in cooling mode the outside unit blows hot air and the inside unit blows cold air. If the outside unit is blowing cold then the indoor unit is most likely blowing room temperature or warm air. It sounds like the thermostat could be controlling incorrectly or you could have a failed reversing valve which is the device that switches the unit from heating to cooling mode.
Have you confirmed that the thermostat is programmed correctly?
Did the thermostat ever control the temperature of the house properly?
When you indicate "kick", are you talking about flipping the Auto-On switch back and forth? The Auto-On switch only controls the fan, and no heating or cooling (Auto - fan runs on call for heat or cool, On- fan runs all the time.).
If "kick" means making the heating work, and if you have the same problem for making the cooling work, chances are good you have bad thermostat.
If the problem only occurs with the heating, and cooling works fine, then the problem could be in the controller board of the furnace, assuming you have a more recent (1990's or newer) furnace.
