It's probably the valve in the cooling hose that lets coolant flow into your heater core. This is up against the firewall about 3/4 of the way down on the passenger side. When you switch the knob from warm to cool, you should be able to see the little "arm" on the hose move back and forth. You may need someone else to watch as you move the temperature knob back and forth.
Also, watch out for over heating (not due to the valve), because it could mean that you could need to replace your water pump and/or thermostat in the near future. If you haven't replaced your timing belt recently (or if you have) and didn't change the water pump at the same time (Honda recommended) Your water pump could be failing.
Odds are pretty good though that it's just where the cable connects to the valve. It may have rusted over time and stuck, or broke the end of the cable, or just need lubricating/bending back into place.
If this is not the case, then you may just have a clogged heater core and should have your coolant system thoroughally flushed in the near future. If none of these work, you may need to replace your heater core.
Drop me a line when you check these over and I'll see what I can come up with.

SOURCE: heating in my 95 honda accord
Here's my list! 1st-check coolant level, if it's low, u won't get heat. 2nd Is engine reaching operating temp within about 5 minutes or a little more? If it is running below the normal level, the thermostat may be stuck open, not allowing the car to reach operating temp, again, no heat. 3rd dash control not working to turn on heat. The heat control is vacuum operated, so if there is a leak or kink in the vac line, it won't work. (not too common). Many cars (I'll have to check on the 95 accord) have a heater control valve in the heater hose line under the hood near the firewall. Sometimes the valve just gets stuck in the closed position, so again, no heat as the hot coolant can't circulate into the heater core.4th plugged heater core. Corrosion, rust plugs up the heater core, coolant can't circulate, no heat.
Start w/ the easy cheap fixes, work your way down, let me know if u need more info. and how u make out.
