Move to Florida, just kidding, it may be that it needs a new thermostat. Also check to see if the coolant is full. Another reason could be the heater valve in the heater hose. They have a tendency of going bad. One more thing would be a plugged heater core. You may want to take it to a trusted shop to get checked out.
