This most likely means the heatercore is partially clogged not heating up air as much as it should. Disconnecting the hoses going into firewall and using a garden hose to flush it out from both directions will usually take care of the problem, a shop will charge around $100 to do this. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
