Furnace Replacement

Want to install a Downlflow FAG furnace in place of a upflow.

I removed an old, Coleman upflow forced air gas furnace from my residence and wish to replace it. I got a really good deal on a slightly used York/Luxaire downflow unit. The furnace is to be installed in the basement. Is it possible to install this unit by elevating it just enough to install the ductwork underneath and tying in to original ductwork? Would this affect the output airflow significantly? Would I be better off finding another upflow? Any suggestions/comments would be appreciated. The unit is a York/Luxaire model #PBKD-LD16N115A, S/N EADM024149. Thanks.

can be done

major modification to ductwork involved. may have to oversize duct to compensate for added airflow restriction due to more elbows. you would be better off going with the upflow
