12v furnace


The only good way you can get this kind power level is the power inverter which it will convert the 120 V AC to 12 V DC for your furance.

Get a inverter that rated for 5 amp I know quite few RV dealership will have something on hand without issue otherwise you can use the battery charger but I don't really receomened it due somecase it will have unstable voltage and chopped DC which it may make odd noise on your furance.

Some electronique store will have this on hand so check it around.

Merci.

... if you go into an electronics store (or even a walmart) and ask for an inverter, you're going to be handed a device that turns 12VDC to 120VAC.

You want the opposite.

It's called a "power supply". Radio Shack has them, or a place that sells CB radio stuff.

If you've got an electronics nerd in the neighborhood he can get you a decent number of amps of 12 volts out of a computer power supply.
