Heater core may be clogged.

What was the reason you replaced the radiator? Did it overheat?

Change the thermostat. Make sure both heater hoses are hot

The hose coming out doesn't get hot. It was running for a little over an hour. We took an air compressor and had air going through and coming out the other end so it isn't clogged.

Use a garden hose and flush it both ways. It does not take much to clog it.

Yes, you need to have the engine idling to burp the air from system. After running to operating temperature, allow to cool down and recheck level in radiator. You might have to repeat process a couple of times to bleed the system. Remember to turn the heater on while bleeding system.
