Heater Question

I have a 330xi I bought it for my sons first car and still trying to figure it out. I noticed today that when the heater is on and the engine is at normal operating temp, I put the temp up to 90 and The vents that blow on your face blow cold air, but when I changed to the floor,and or the defrost, the heater produced hot air. This is the first BMW I have ever owned so Im not sure if there is something im doing wrong or what. Any info would be great.

Make sure the dial in between the two center vents is rolled to 3 red dots.
