2 Forced air gas furnace help

I have a furnace upstairs and a furnace in the basement. The upstairs is unused. I have had it turned of, but it seems the downstairs furnace runs often. Am I overworking the lower level furnace by not using the upper one? It seems a shame to run the upstairs furnace when there is no one up there.

Running the upstairs unit is not likely to make the downstairs unit run any less. Heat rises so the heat created from the upstairs unit will not affect the temperature downstairs.

Thanks. I may have left soemething out. There is a large area that is open to the upstairs. (Vaulted ceiling open to the upstairs on two of the four sides) Would I have cold (unheated) air dropping down from the upstairs causing the lower furnace to work harder?
