Air Handler Mounting Requirements


Recommended Posts

I inspected a new house today and noticed the air handler in the crawl space was not mounted to the floor joist, it was sitting off the ground on top of cinder blocks. Would this be acceptable.

Better than hanging on floor joists without vibration isolation.

Was the pitch correct to drain condensate? Any liquid-tech sensor to shut off the unit in case the condensate pump failed? The suction line is not insulated all the way to the unit and will drip in hot humid weather. It looks like the liquid line is rubbing up against the unit - refrigerant leaks in the future.

I'm sure more could be found if inspecting it first hand.
