I current have one-zoned gas heat controlled by one thermostat on my first floor. Is there any way possible to install a second thermostat on the second floor to control the temperature when needed? Does there exist some type of bypass switch that would give me control via one thermostat while isolating control from the other? Please respond.

Adding a zone valve is the only way to take control of the heat on the 2nd floor. Additional t-stat also needed to control this valve.

Is the solution of using a zone valve applicable for all types of furnaces (I have a forced air furnace) ?

The option of installing a zone valve, Is it a do it yourself project ? what are the cost estimates ?

OK,..Forced air is different...I thought this was a boiler. Adding another stat to the upstairs tennant or upstairs will not solve you space difference in temp problem. 2 T-stats in parellel will generally burn out one of the t-stats. Now, to take control and surrender control through what ever you want is possible. I am guessing at your desire to give the upstairs the ability to get alittle warmer if need be. The only problem is that the downstairs will generally overheat a bit.
If you want total control on a particular t-stat, you need a relay to enable yours when you want , thus dissabling the other stat and vise-versa when you switch the manual switch the other way. Is this what your are thinking?
