What size and efficiency is your furnace?
Your house needs at least 52,000 btu/h to be properly sized. Your furnace only has an output of 48,000 btu/h so it is too small for your home. The reason the flame cycles on and off is because the thermostat pre-anticipates the temperature in the home so it doesn’t overshoot the set point. You really need a larger furnace.
It depends on what type of hot water heating you have. If you have baseboard style, then all we can do is install a whole new system to cool your house, but if you have in floor or slab style then we can in some instances cool the floor down to 65° Fahrenheit and provide some cooling that way.There are also systems available called ‘ductless mini-splits’ that can be used to cool your home as well.

A swamp cooler or evaporator cooler uses water sprayed or dripped through a membrane with a fan to evaporate the water giving it a cooling effect. The problem is that you are adding a lot of humidity to your home, which can cause long-term damage and promote mould. I would strongly recommend against using this type of cooler
If you have ductwork and floor vents, you have a furnace. If you have radiators or in-floor heating, you have a boiler.
