Bump up your daily calorie intake by 200-300 Cals everyweek until you reach your desired rate of weightgain. Shoot for 0.5-1 lbs / week to limit fat gains on your bulk.

If you do more cardio, then you have to add even more cals.

id say bump up calories by 100-200 a week, if your starting at a low figure of 1400, you dont wana jump too high too quickly.
