Check the blend air doors to see if they are working. If they are, you need to check the heater core. When the engine is cold, make sure the coolant is full. Next, start the engine, turn the heater on high, and allow the engine to warm up. Feel both heater core hoses. Both should be hot. If only one is hot, the core is most likely plugged and will need back flushed.

I've had the experience with two cars of adding coolant to the radiator and the system developing an air lock where the heater blew cool air afterwards. On most newer cars, there's little 'petcock' screws that need to be opened to allow air out of the system. Does the top and bottom radiator hoses feel about the same temp (so you know you don't have a thermostat problem)?

Assuming the thermostat is okay and it's an air lock, you can do more research to see the procedure for clearing any air lock OR if you took the car in for a radiator flush, they generally know what and where to look to return a good working heater to you.
