[HVAC Filter]Is there a way to harness the power of my outside unit to force more and faster air through my gas furnace?

The kuanes family has moved into a house that uses gas via the hot water heater for heat. There is an outside fan unit that only comes on when the A/C is used in the summer. I'm assuming that the air for the heat is only forced through with a small fan within the furnace. The outside unit is *NEVER* used for forcing air when the heat is on. The furnace fan doesn't seem to be pushing the heated air very well. Is there any way to use the outside unit to push the heated air with more force? I have no HVAC experience, but am willing to pay someone to hook this up if it's doable.
