Question Replaced Final Stage Resistor and Blower Motor but no hot air!

Hi Everyone....please help! Recently my blower on my 328i E46 series stopped working so I looked through the forums and found advice to start first with checking with fuses, then replacing final stage resistor, then blower motor. I have completed all of the above and the blower motor is finally up and running again. The blower motor was the issue....I the air conditioner works but I do not have any heat! I thought I had the problem fixed but really need help on what to do next. Please!! Winter is coming and I need heat! If anyone has any advice for me as to where to go next I would appreciate it tremendously! Thanks

Move to the south.. lol.. seriously, your heater core might have air, or the heater flap might be broken. The former was the issue with my VW.
