I have never seen a furnace with the outside casing completly insulated so of course when it gets hot it is going to radiate heat. The heat will disipate fairly quickly when the unit goes off.
Yeah, I called him back and he said that my room temps I gave him are just fine and are normal for my setup. Sounds like everything is ok, I just hope there is adequate combustion air. Not sure how to tell if its lacking, maybe when the CO detectors go off in mid winter....

Check around the burner opening and the draft hood on the water heater, if it is back drafting you will feel heat rolling out from it. If your furnace is fairly new (last 10 years or so) it will have a draft switch on it. If it starts tripping then you have a draft issue. If not I would say you are good to go. You also have the added safety of the CO detectors.

All seems well. Furnace installed 2004. Mid-efficiency I believe.
