We are replacing our furnace and are trying to decide whether to put the new furnace under the house or in the attice.
We currently have a floor furnace, with all of the heat coming out of one big register in the middle of the house. We are replacing it with a forced air furnace, with ducts going to each room. The house is 1279 square feet.
We've had several people come and give estimates, and the most reasonble of them suggested that we put the furnace in the attic so we don't have to deal with the ductwork taking up space in the basement. I'm wondering about the efficiency of a system in the attic, with registers in the ceiling, versus one from the basement, with registers in the floor.
Any input/advice is much appreciated.
