Blocked heater matrix.
You could try flushing it(there's a guide) but I find all that does is make a small improvement.
A new matrix is cheap at about 20, but fitting it is not a nice job. There's a guide for that too.
The heater should provide lots of hot air as soon as the car warms up.

HBV is vac controlled, can't remember which way round .. but I recall having to disconnect the vac line from the HBV and block it with a small screw, leaving the HBV side open to atmosphere, until I changed a vac control valve... but don't recall if that was to get heat or turn off heat !! .... might be worth a fiddle with the vac line .. :)
