Are you loosing any coolant? Is it smoking white smoke? Is it driving normally? The answers to these question will help us figure out if the head gaskets are bad. Why did they say you needed them?

Ok so now you have heat and you are not loosing any coolant. Oh forgot to mention. What does your oil look like? Is it normal looking or does it look like a milkshake? If oil looks normal and car is not smoking or loosing any coolant then I would say you do not have a head gasket issue.
