Housing temp? Check your heating coils, and main heating hoses. (check on YouTube if you can't find them)

Change the thermostat, if this does not open at temp you not get any heat into the cab.

I have a 1998 Outback limited / 2.5L... Had timing belt and water pump changed. Engine would NOT put heat to cab and overheated rapidly. Turns out that there were air bubbles in the lines and other places inside the engine. Once we got that sorted, the temp went to normal range on the gauge and the heater output temp would run you out of the car.
