comment No voltage at light switch
@Edwin They need somebody more experienced, that is actually there and can do the work needed. The short answer format of this site, cannot provide enough information to teach the OP all they need to know.

Does the furnace cycle normally (other than the draft motor staying on)?

It sounds like you may be a novice when it comes to electrical work. You might want to contact an Electrician, or at least a friend that knows a bit about electricity.

How are you measuring the current at the switch? How do you know there's voltage at the outlets?

comment Is it safe to pull a continuous 18 amps from a 15 amp outlet?
Can you include a photo of the plug that is connected to the equipment you're using? I'm interested to see the pin configuration.

comment Convert a switched receptacle to a non switched receptacle
An "Outlet", is any point that allows you to draw power from the electrical system. Of which you can have receptacle outlets, lighting outlets, etc. A "Receptacle" is a device, that allows you to connect things to the electrical system via a plug. Of which you can have single receptacles, duplex receptacles, etc. When you're reading National Electrical Code, "outlet" does not equal "receptacle".

Questions asking for pricing are off topic, since they are extremely localized.
