Most likely the flap control is broken, not sure if yours is cable operated or vacuum though. Turn the switch to cold/ hot and see if you hear any change. If not pull out the control or feel in behind and see which it is. The cables break or pop off an end sometimes.

Or as a TEMPORARY FIX ... you can install a cut - of valve in the heater hose line and stop the flow of coolant into the heater core.

When you say hot air, do you mean heater or ambient outside air?

If you are talking about A/C... check the temperature of the larger diameter line. It should be cold with the a/c on.(about 33- 40f). if it is than your heater valve is letting hot air flow it the plenum. you can temporaily check that by pinching off your heater hose to the heater core.
If the a/c line is not cool your a/c is not working for some other reason. (ie.low refrigerant charge, bad fuse, bad clutch or comperssor)
