It's not low on coolant. They have to run diagnosis tomorrow
Subaru Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 4 months ago

ok ,we either have heater core clogged up or the blend door actuator inside the dash are reversing from hot to cold

the heater core will be expensive but the door actuator will be way cheaper

$1000 on heater core and around $250 for actuators

You are very welcome :)
