Might get more luck posting this in the fiesta section rather than the focus section kidda. But my best guess is an airlock in the heater matrix.

Sounds like the thermostat is stuck open.

Does the engine get up to temp just as quick?

If the thermostat was stuck open it would blow hot when the engines hot. If it was stuck closed it wouldnt get hot at all. It wouldnt just get hot when the cars stood.

If its an air lock the heating system needs bleeding to get the air out. Not 100% sure how you'd do that. Of course its possible the part you replaced last year is faulty and needs doing again.
