Default 2006 Heater problems

Hi there! Just bought me a nice 2006 Cruiser, on the test drive everything seemed fine, except a little front end noise, but I got a good deal, I bought the car anyway.
On the way home the hot air from the vents suddenly turned cold (control set to max heat). I turned it off, in a couple minutes later turned it back on again: hot air, couple minutes later: cold air.
Any ideas what this could be? I have no experience with these cars at all. Just bought it today. Until now I had 70's Cadillacs...

Check for air in the system. --- Watch the temp gauge to see if it varies after the car is warmed up. It should stay at halfway.

Yes, I have to go through the car, as I noticed it needs a couple little things, only this heater is bugging me. I noticed that if I rev it more heat comes out the vents. I hope it is not a water pump... The car does not overheat though. The gauge stays at halfway. It was sitting for a couple months not sure if it could be related...

yen; I'd recheck the coolant level. Learn about the reservoir tank system and how it keeps the air out of the cooling system. Also, check for a kinked heater hose going to the heater core.
