145 JTD

Help Alfa 145 JTD heater

Hello there

I have recently managed to achieve an ambition by buying a beautiful Ferrari red Alfa 145 JTD. There is just one problem. The heater seems to take a long time to warm up. I have checked the fluid level in the coolant system and all is okay, yet it still takes ages to become warm - a necessity in the Winter. Even the temperature guage doesn't seem to elevate much. Is there a winter/summer setting like in many cars? Or maybe there is something wrong with the heater matrix. The car has a full service history and is in perfect condition having been loved by the previous owner. If anyone has any info, please don't hesitate to get back to me.
Thanks and have a great day
