electric furnace not heating

furnace comes as it should when thermostat is moved. furnace blower everything works fine. the problem is the air coming thru the floor vents is barely warm. the little I know about furnaces is what I have read, but it seems like only one heating element is heating. could that be because the heat squencer is not working properly? thanks in advance for any help

Welcome to the forums.

Yes it could be a defective element as there are usually at least two.

For starters.... a make and model number will be needed.
If you are going to attempt the repair you will need a volt-ohmmeter. Without it, don't even open the furnace up.

If you plan to repair it your self.... you'll need to turn the main power off to the electric coils, remove the access cover and take and post several well lit pictures of the relays and wiring.
