Two stage heating thermostat recommendation
I just installed a new 80k btu York high efficiency two stage gas furnance in our vacation property. I picked up a basic manual two stage stat from the orange box store, but I'm not happy with the performance. It's a no name Filtrete brand stat and I should have known better than to buy something cheap. The thermostat will call for heat and then kick out 10-15 seconds later before the blower even kicks in. This happens for 2-3 times before the furnace will run for a cycle.

Anyway, I don't need any fancy programming capabilities since this will be installed in a vacation property. I'm looking for something simple and reliable, but with two stage capability. Any recommendations?
