    Did you give model of thermostat?

    Another option may be to use a different stat, with remote sensor capability, that can limit the ability of the furnace.
    I am not familiar with York so this may not be possible.

    You really do need a system evaluation, plan and then make decisions.

    That attic furnace is probably the right size for the ENTIRE house!! Proper load and duct calculations will determine this.

    Here is a link to the manual but I can't see anything about recovery or how I might be able to adjust this: http://www.upgnet.com/PdfFileRedirec...UUM-A-0114.PDF

    If I put the fan in "manual" and set it to 35%, does that mean the furnace will limit itself to 35% output?

    Last night I tried closing the registers almost all the way shut in the kids' rooms and closing their doors as if they were sleeping and the furnace ramped to 100% and the rooms still got too hot, so struck out there.

    It also seems like my thermostat (https://www.york.com/for-your-home/t...cating-control) might not be compatible with remote temperature sensors. Any way to know for sure?

    Thanks again for everyone's help...this has already been really helpful and I appreciate the way this community tries to assist in so many different ways.

    Fan refers to the blower only, usually as I am unfamiliar with York specifically. This would NOT limit the firing rate.

    This thermostat offers 3 stage, stage-up differential temperature settings , and stage up timer. The timer is likely set on. It can be turned off.
    You can also “inhibit” the upstaging via a timer as well. This timer will not allow upstaging by the stage up differential.
    This thermostat can also allow for down staging. On/off, and a stage down inhibit timer.

    You may need to have your installer go through these settings with you, and set them to your preference.
