Have a look at the thermostat. If it hasn't been replaced before, I'd replace it...with new gasket/rubbers.

Also have a look at your heater tap...it might be busted which might not give you any heat. Even if the thermostat is stuck open, there should be enough warmth

Mine (heater tap) was stuck open when I got my car...that wasn't too fun in summer! I got a new one off ebay for about 15 bucks IIRC.

What if it isn't thermostat or tap? Can no aircon gas cause it or is it probably going to be the core?

Is the tap actually working?...check the vac lines...start it up and pull the vac line off of it to see if it moves. When I got mine the damn engine cover was pinching one of the lines.
