Burp the engine block. I don't know for sure but some engines will develop a air pocket prevent proper cooling and water pump action. If its like my engine there are two thermostats. My gauge never reaches the middle position or even close but heat does come out.
However, if the heater core hoses are both hot you should get hot air if the air duct dampers move to winter mode (manual control is easier the check twisting the knob and locating the cable/arm under the dash.) As I recall the correct Antifreeze is HOAT spec which is usually pink. Many shops just put in generic prestone. LOL
So at this stage are you actually getting flow through the heater core? (Flushing with a garden hose backwards cleans it). If so the fluid coming out will be hot, very hot. Then its the duct airway controls issue.
