Installer made the decision for a reason. Maybe not a good one
Every evaporator I have ever seen is right on top of the furnance. Mostly
because they parts fit together well that way. The picture seems to show a
the furnance and evap of differing sizes.
Asbestos tape?, new one on me. Sure it is not just duct tape?
Mike it is impossible to answer you. There are a thousand things to look at
and your only providing a few details. Call several licensed contractors and
ask them. They can see the job.
Might be a good time to replace everything now or maybe wait till after the
Installing the humidier now may be more trouble than it is worth.
Do you still have the receipt for the humidifier?
If you do, take it back and go by a free-standing whole house unit. I don't
mean the ones that hold one gallon that you have to fill daily. Get one of
them suckers that look like a piece of furniture. Then place it somewhere
near the retuen on your duct sytem. You'll be a lot happier with it......
Hardcrab, Buy a freestanding unit you have to fill 5 gallons in every
day or so and pay to run a second apliance when the furnace does it
free, and have that extra fan noise and one more piece of junk to store
in summer, Dumb Hardcrab real dumb expecialy considering control to an
April air that monitors outside temps and keeps humidity optimal and a
freestanding unit does little in out of the way rooms, dumb. A furnace
humidifier is one of the main benefits of forced air vs HW radiators,
yea Ive lived with HW radiators and cheap looking furniture that
humidifies and makes noises and rattles .
