Too much heat in the cockpit!

My cabin heater seems to be working overtime lately - dandy during the winter but a major pain now that warm weather is here (in CA). Lots of warm air is coming into the cockpit and the heater fan lever does not shut it off. Where should I start troubleshooting?

Thanks for the help. The problem was a rusty heater valve on the left side. A little lubricant and manual exercise from underneath restored its spring-loaded function. I also discovered the 3" flex hose connecting the heater valve to the duct going forward to the cockpit was mostly gone.
