greetings, i am planning on installing a new furnace with a/c soon and a
co-worker told me that you can hang a furnace from the floor
joyces(sp?), mounted sideways. (we have flooding issues)..is this true?
are all brands of furnaces capable of being installed this way?
When you mount a air handler from the joists, you can get rid of vibration
noise and if you use the right hardware it will even be better. Again talk
to your HVAC company.
What I found by mounting it from the joists, you have a better drainage of
the condensate water.
What kind of issue with flooding? Leaks, ground water, or Katrina type
My furnace is mounted on 3" concrete blocks, You can mount it on 8"
concrete blocks if that will keep it dry.
Anything higher and you had better move the furnace to a higher floor.
