The floor space up there is somewhere in the 600-800 ft^2 range.

I'd rather not get a big fan, but it seem as though the only ones listed at HD, Lowes or on Amazon...

Here's what the brick openings look like on both sides of the house. So if you can picture the whole roof... there's no ridge vent and no soffit vent (or space for them-no overhang).

I'm...

Thanks for the detailed reply. After looking around some more, I believe that the reason the unit is cycling at that rate is due to the new thermostat, a Honeywell 6400D. These apparently keep the...

Thanks for the reply. The furnace definitely seems to be on and off at a relatively normal schedule and the cycles don't seem to be too frequent (someone let me know if I'm wrong).

Normal amount of heat cycling

I apologize for all the questions, but does anyone know what is normal in terms of how much a furnace should be turning on and off?

Ours seems to be coming on for about 6 minutes, 4 times / hour...

Sure enough, the tech that did come out disagreed at first and said the issue was the furnace. Based on the troubleshooting info you provided me, we convinced him otherwise. He tried a second...
