Does low refrigerant have any relationship to the heater not getting as hot as it should

I obviously have a leak in the AC system. But the heating system doesn't work efficiently. It does blow warm air but not as hot as it used to. I have replaced the thermostat. Could this leak have any effect on the heater system?

I don't believe it will affect the temperature of the hot air. It can change the effectiveness of the Defroster. Most likely the heater core needs flushed.

No direct relationship between the heater and the a/c systems; these are two different and separate systems.
