Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

When you zoom in a map (low level) you can view the house/bldg numbers on the map. When you zoom out, those numbers are removed from the map. I like the low level view with the numbers being displayed, but I can only export a small area. My question is, is it possible to export a larger area, but at a zoom level where I can view the displayed house numbers?

You can adjust the scale on the export tab; enter a scale of 1:3000 and you get an export with house numbers. However using such a detailed scale will only be possible for relatively small areas too. This is because producing very large images consumes a lot of computing time on the server. What you can do is download the data, and then create the map from that yourself using suitable rendering software; there are many questions and answers about this here (search for "render own map" and similar).
