Overriding thermostat to heat room to 105F?

Maya Member Posts: 2
I have a hot yoga studio and am having trouble getting my heat high enough. I am wondering if you can override a thermostat to heat the room to 105F? As of right now it only goes up to 90F and takes a while to get there.

    Your equipment may not be able to provide you with what you want as far as temps go.  It may also shorten the life of your furnace due to the hi temps.  All furnaces have a primary limit switch that protects the heat exchanger from over heating.  In addition to that, the "delta T" is usually between 40* and 70*f  for normal operation.  Residential t-stats only go to 90*f for the most part and are not designed to go much above that.

         105*f sounds quite hi and can be a health hazard due to dehydration or heat stroke.  Is this furnace just for that room?  When furnace equipment is installed into a house, it is designed for degree days and average ambient temps according to climate.
