GEO METRO HEATER PROBLEM

Heater problem
1997 Geo Metro 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 135, 00 miles

Hi
My heater takes about 3o minutes to barely warm up. The air blows out all the vents pretty strong just not warm. It takes 27 miles to get to work and I have it on high all the way with little warmth. My husband wants to change the thermostat(?) No mechanic in him but doesn't know how or where to start.
thank you

In extremely cold conditions, it may take awhile for the heater to warm. Does the temp gage on the dash reach normal operating temp?

With everything warm and the heater turned on, can you feel of the heater hoses, under the hood, are they both about the same temp? Is either one even hot?
