If your system is forced hot air, your ducts may need cleaning.

The best thing to do is to replace the filter with a new one if it has a cardboard frame. The filter is readily available at hardware and home supply stores. You can also try to clean the filter with a tube of running water by flipping it over and over. Check out http://www.ehow.com/how_5729933_clean-heater-filters.html for more particulars.

it can be one or two things your filter needs replacing or something crawled up in one of the ducts and passed away....
