It sounds like you have a restricted heater core, I would suggest a flush of the heater core.

It sounds like youre not getting enough flow through the heater core. Did you replace the water pump and tstat yourself? If not id take it back to the shop that did and tell them of your heater issue. Otherwise when the car is cool. Take one of the heater hoses loose at the firewall, crank the car and check for flow. This is a line that comes directly from the waterpump. If theres no flow there at idle the waterpump is at fault
