Check coolant level and then check to see if both heater hoses are hot. If on is hot and the other luke warm or cold, you might have a plugged heater core. If both are hot then you might have a problem will the what they call a "blend door actuator". Both need to be diagnosed be a mechanic because they will required the dash to be removed to be repaired. $$!!!

A heater blowing cold air can be a few things. have all of these things check for proper operation to find the source of the problem.
1. Coolant level
3. Water Pump
4. Heater control valve
5. Make sure that the heater control doors are closing when you switch from hot to cold.
6.Last but not least if the climatic controls are electric it maybe at fault.

Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.
