That seems very odd. So you say this only happens when the heater is on. Maybe the heater is drawing too much power and your alternator can't keep up? That would be my guess.

bring the car to autozone or somewhere that will test your alternator for voltage output before and after load. Alternator voltage output should remain above 13volts under load (with blower on). If it doesn't, first check and clean alternator connections BEFORE buying a new alternator.
