Sounds like we may have a partially stuck thermostat or a partially restricted heater core. First we need to check the coolant level and condition. If low then we need to fill it with a 50/50 mix of jag coolant and water. If it is full we need to check flow through the heater core and or try flushing it first. Let me know.

I just had oil change done at Firestone and they checked coolant and said it was good

OK then it is most likely a partially stuck thermostat or restricted heater core.
