Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If it were a dual zone system and there was a temperature difference between sides then a blend door or actuator issue on the offending side would be possible, but if you have a single zone system then you have a restricted heater core.

The issue is cooling system corrosion due to acidity. The aluminum in the radiator, heater core and oil cooler breaks down and the aluminum oxide then restricts the heater core. This will require flushing the cooling system, replacing the radiator and heater core, and the oil cooler if you have a 3.6.
