It could be your air mix actuator not switching.

simple...not likely
but can be fixed with some effort.

sounds like you need your 'nipples' fixed

the airmix actuator only moves the blend door for hot or cold air. has nothing to do with the vent location.

read these two articles. very helpful on fixing your problem and explaining how things work:

Default is to the windshield/floor. I would check for vacuum at the supply (purple) to the HVAC unit before fixing the nipples. If you have vacuum, then most likely it'* the nipples.
