How hot does your engine run? If it's running cool all the time your thermostat is stuck open, if its running hot make sure the coolant is topped up.
Heater hoses or core could be blocked. Blend door could be sticking (behind the dash, P.I.T.A. job) Or there is a vacuum leak in the C/control system.
But 1st off make sure the thermostat is working properly and you have the proper amount of coolant in the car. Then start looking at the other problems.
