Moving Furnace/Air conditioner to Attic

Hi All.

We have a 5-ton Trane system which is currently in the garage the furnace and a-coil. Condenser sits outside of course. We need to move the furnace/a-coil to the attic for several reasons.

What is the the best place in the attic to position the unit with respect to noise? Should it be mounted on some type of platform that can absorb vibrations?

For best noise isolation it should be hung from the rafters using spring suspension mounts and the ductwork should have flexible connectors. Make sure any electrical and fuel connections are by means of code-approved flexible connectors.

Hang ups

And when you hang the auxiliary drain pan make sure if the unit is sitting in it that cork pads (rubber & cork) are under it just be sure to keep metal from touching metal and you should be fine.
