Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Your furnace doesn't make hot water. You should have a separate water heater. Either a tank type that sits on the floor or a tankless mounted on a wall. There are a couple other possibilities but they aren't very common. Can you look around some more and let me know what you find?
