condensation

I have a forced air electric furnace. With a outside air supply. When it is really cold out, I get considerable condensation on windows and humidity in home rises from 40 percent to 60 percent. Should I or can I close off the outside fresh air supply and have it only pull from inside of building basement?

condensation means you need more ventilation. Do not close it. Open a window an 1/4 inch for a day are so. Make sure bath fans run during showers and at least 20 minutes after. Make sure fans run when cooking.
