Check to make sure your radiator is full.You could have air in the cooling system or have a plugged heater core. Another possibility is the heater control. If the inlet and the outlet of your heater core are hot you could have a plugged core.

Does the temperature lever move easely? it could be un hooked from the door or lever.

Should have said if the inlet is hot and outlet is much cooler you could have a plugged heater core.

could also be the blender lever that switches the air from ac to warm. It is white plastic and breaks. If you check your repair manual under the HVAC section, you'll see it.
