    I read the t-stat manual and set the interval time between the first stage and when the second stage should kick in. I set it high enough a time that the second stage should not have kicked on.

    I lined the box with sheetrock if that's what ya mean, then stapled carpet over it. Most boxes have exposed framing and I cut sheetrock to fit and carpeted over it.
