Is your car getting warm enough to produce heat? Could be your thermostat is stuck open.
What temperature does the dash indicate?

When the heater does blow hot air (towards the windshield) but not through any of the other ducts, I think one of your valves inside the heater housing is not controlled any more (due to a vacuum leak or broken vacuum pod).
A valve has to be opened inside the heater housing to let the incoming air flow through the heat exchanger so it gets warmed up.
My guess is that this valve stays closed and the incoming air is being led straight into the interior...

this would be a different vacuum system than the one that controls the doorlocks ect....all of the vacuum controlled equipment appears to be working fine. how do i go about rectifying this problem or is it something that i can't do by myself???? thanks for the marley

The two vacuum systems you mentioned are separate and not related. Replacing the heater solenoid valve/mono valve is not enough to correct your problem. The a/c switch assembly is the first place to start your investigation, as it controls all the opening and closing of the air flow vents.
