In fact, on full blast, if you direct the flow to the footwell it very soon gets uncomfortable on your left ankle.
If your issue is the temperature then yes, you need to look at flushing the cooling system and making sure it is working efficiently.
If your issue is the air volume being moved through the system, then; is your fan working at full speed?; are the flaps adjusted to direct the airflow properly?; is the fan inlet blocked with debris, preventing enough air being passed through?

Try Caprigear first.
Then there's the joy of removing the heater box, splitting it, swapping the motor and putting it all back together.
I used to get that done in a couple of hours, but had loads of practice.
Budget a day and take your time.
Tip for splitting the box; heat the plastic lugs with a hairdryer to make them less prone to snapping

Might it be worth lubricating the bearings? There was a guide on Nige's workshop page on how to do this without removing the heater motor.
Note: The guide was on a sticky, but I can't seem to find it now.
