The fact that the blower turns on leads me to believe the blower motor resistor is at fault for this problem. The blower motor resistor receives a signal from the controller and adjusts airflow accordingly. The problem could also be in the controller. A certified technician such as one from YourMechanic could properly diagnose your heating issue.
