A couple of furnace concerns- Carrier

We have a Carrier Comfort 92 ultra efficient furnace. We have a single story home that is about 1200 sq feet.

We just had our home insulated, so maybe I am just a little extra sensitive right now about the furnace. It seems to be taking a rather long time to heat the home...It seems to be moving at about 2-3 degrees per hour. But, it seems to be running constantly....nonstop. I just don't see how all that money we just spent on insulation is going to help our heating bill if the furnace is constantly running.

We do have a heat pump, but I honestly cannot remember what the parameters were about when it kicks on, and when it moves on to the actual gas heat.

Also, we have a White Rodgers thermostat, and a little thermometer set out next to it. The thermometer is at about 4-6 degrees less than the thermostat. I don't know if that means something is wrong with the thermostat or wiring or duct work or what.

so is the HP running a long time or is it the gas furnace? 2-3F per hour is not bad... The furnace/hp can only rise the temp at a certain rate regardless of insulation. The insulation will help you retain the heat more than help you gain temperature faster.
