Is there any reason not duct the air intake from a natural gas furnace to the exterior you live in Wisconsin and it is a new install?
No, it is preferable to use outdoor air which is then expelled rather than blowing indoor air out so new cold air replaces it.

Answer . \ntake and remove your stock intake and bolt ur new one up easy
It depends on model you have. If you buy something like AEM, the intake is usually a direct plug in. You take out factory one and replace it with the one you want. Cheaper …ones are usually also easy to install, and do not require any modification.
Oil furnaces cannot be converted to gas - LP or natural - as they have totally different burners and have very different internal construction.
Fairly easy. Unbolt the stock air filter and intake and bolt on the new on. This really is a "bolt on" application.
If you live in a colder climate where there is snow, you should check your outside air intake pipe to make sure it is not covered in snow. The pipe needs to be clear in order …for it to be able to draw air into the house. This simple tip may save you big $ on a service call.
Sounds like it's cold where you are. The term is hoar frost.. Knock the frost off with the furnace turned off. Check the pipe where the furnace exausts. You may need to exten…d it a bit to keek it from recycling to the intake. If you extend it, insulate it also.. If it is caused by snowfall being sucked into the air intake, consider increasing the size of the pipe with a bell reducer. This in effect reduces the velocity of the air. In worst case situations I have used a "T" after the increaser and then two 90's pointing downward.. lc
An intake air duct serves as a passage for supplying air to an engine, and includes a first intake air passage, a second intake air passage, an opening-and-closing valve, an i…nterlocking member and a coiled spring. The opening-and-closing valve is disposed swingably in the second intake air passage so as to open and close the second intake air passage
when installed new, natural gas is clean and SAFE. it has no known side effects and helps save the environment.
Buy the register, trace out the the hole for the part of it that will penetrate the duct, cut the hole and install the register then screw it in.
I use a hacksaw brace that allows the blade to fit in without attaching both ends like a conventional hacksaw brace. The open handled brace is available in most hardware store…s. Put the blade in the brace with the teeth pointing down to the handle and your hand. This seems backwards but you'll cut on the pulling stroke. Attach some form of guide to the line that you want to cut. For example, drill a couple of holes in a metal ruler and attach the ruler to the line on the duct you want to cut. Attach the ruler using #8 sheet metal screws 5/8" long to the duct work. The purpose is to keep your line(s) straight and prevent the duct work from moving back and forth with the saw blade's action. Drill a 1/2" hole or larger in the duct along the ruler's edge. This is necessary to insert the hacksaw into the hole to start your cut. Here is an essential tip: Use a hacksaw blade with 24 teeth per inch. Don't use a more coarse blade like 18 or 22. Don't use a 32 teeth per inch unless it's a short cut or you don't mind sawing all afternoon. Here's an crucial point: Cut your line by dragging the blade downward toward you; don't push the blade back up like sawing wood, just pull the blade down and out and then reinsert the blade for your next cut. If you do this, the blade won't jam and bend out of shape besides cutting the duct more easily and quickly. Finally, be SURE TO WEAR safety glasses because the steel dust from cutting the duct will find its way into your eyes and cause a bunch of grief.
How can I get my furnace fan to move more air. We had a new ac unit installed the HVAC tech said our ducting is too big for the house. You can barely feel air coming out?
I am continuing my question because they'll only allow it to be so long. Our house is only 1300 square feet but we live in a cookie cutter development where there are other ho…uses 2600 square feet. So perhaps the contractor ordered one size ducting for all houses. I've been in the crawl space and attic inspecting the ducting for leaks with the fan on and have found none. The furnace does fine in the winter when it's heating though here in Western Washington it doesn't get that cold. I replace the filter about ever 3 months and have installed an attic fan to help out. However the AC never seems to keep up even when its only 75 degrees. Thank you.

Primary air is the air that mixes with the gas before the gas is burned.

They are more energy efficient. you would have to pay more for gas furnace and they have a short life span.

No, an electric furnace does not need an outside air intake. For oil and gas furnaces an air supply is needed. It is called combustion air. It is needed for complete combustio…n of the fuel and not use the heated air that is in the house. Today's homes are built as a sealed unit to stop infiltration air from leaking in and costing the home owner more money to heat the home. Many installations use a motorized damper that cuts off the air supply when the furnace is not operating. This prevents a draft through the vent from the outside of the house when other extracting devices are operating.

No because the aftermarket air intake systems don't add anything to your car except a porous filter that sucks up more dirt than air and damages your engine
In Natural Gas
Natural gas furnaces work by combining natural gas with air and lighting it. This results in a flame that heats up the air and warms the rest of the house.
