You need to install a new thermostat. The stat is located at the lower end of the top radiator hose within the water outlet. After the stat is installed, run the car with the radiator cap off for about 20 minutes checking and adding coolant as the air is pushed out of the system. Keep a eye on the coolant level over the next few weeks to insure the system does not have a leak which could be why you had this problem in the first place.

How does a car heater work?

[first time answering questions] car heater works like the reverse of the normal cooling radiator - in fact the heater is like a small version of the rad that's on the frnt of the car - the hot water from the engine block goes into this small rad and the heater fan blows air thru it into the car - the hot heater rad loses heat into the car and - bingo - you get warm inside
