I have another question about my new house. My inspector found that
my HVAC units in the attic are installed upright. That's fine,
but they're installed directly into the secondary drain pan.
My inspector is having
I suppose I should have finished my question!!
In any case, my inspector is concerned that the HVAC units sitting
directly in the drain pan is a problem. The builder is claiming
that it's installed per the local code. I am concerned that the
entire purpose of the drain pan is to collect water. And the steel
bottom of the HVAC unit will be sitting in water. I'm worried
about a corrosion problem.
Is it normal to install HVAC units upright in an attic? Is there
a problem with that? Should those units be sitting on cinder blocks
instead of directly in the pan?
(In case you can't tell, I'm a complete newb when it comes to
home construction. I appreciate any help you can provide.)
