Not sure generally why they run, but it could be due to a range of issues relating to the weather and a malfunction in the heat pump. I found this string, which may have some relevant info for you: http://www.city-data.com/forum/raleigh-durham-chapel-hill-cary/509800-heat-pump-electricty-cost-during-winter.html.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
