Its a shot in the dark but does your control work on all speed levels? The reason I ask is because on my wife's truck, it was doing the same thing.I replaced the blower motor and problem solved with the weak air flow from the vents.

Leaf & Debris Build-Up Location pic in 80-96 Blower Motors & Ducts
Source: by Steve83 (Steve, That dirty old truck) at SuperMotors.net

This shows where leaves build up in '80-96 truck ductwork. If they build up around the resistors (green), the entire truck can catch fire if the motor (yellow) is NOT at full speed all the time. The red pointer is where the cowl drain boot should be.
..

This is where leaves build up, on both sides of the truck. They come thru the wiper valance slots ('80-86) and between the windshiled & its lower trim (all). This valve is more easily accessed by removing the 5.5mm (7/32") screws from the edge of the wheelwell

Insufficient Heat TSB 88-09-10 for 87-88 Bronco & F Series; "...Insufficient heat inside of vehicles equipped with or without air conditioning may be caused by the heater air baffle missing from the plenum chamber.

Check to see if the top radiator hose is hot after running the engine to normal temp a sign the T-stat is working properly, did you replace the heater hoses recently .....check the inline and return line are hooked up correctly.

I would suggest you "backflush" the cooling system and clean out the inside of the engine, radiator, heater core and wash any reusable radiator/bypass/heater hoses in detergent and that will certainly help with heat assuming controls, blend door and blower motor etc. are all functioning properly.

Good Luck ~ :thumbup

Also if the issue isnt fixed already, pull the heater control panel and look at the plug on the fan speed. Pull it off and inspect it. Mine did the same as the OP and my plug was melted. if yours is the same way hit up a junk yard and get a different one. Just make sure you cut the wires back so u have room to splice the wires to your harness.
