Once you have chosen which model of the Weil McLain 80% AFUE Gas Furnaces you want to use, you have to choose a place to install the unit. Some of the most common places are the attic; basement, garage or some homes have utility room that is perfect for boiler and furnace installations. When choosing a place to install your furnace, you must make sure that there is sufficient room to clean and service the furnace in case of problems.
These furnaces can be installed on non-combustible flooring for only up flow or horizontal installs for wood flooring. It is not recommended that you install the down flow application on these floors. This is a safety hazard and could cause a fire. Make sure that the location of the furnace is not near any water supply such as a washing machine or a slop sink. When you choose the Up or the Down Flow application you must choose the venting application that work best for you.
You can choose to use the Single Wall venting or the Type B1 venting. The vent clearance on the Single Wall is 6″ with a clearance of 1″ from the top and the sides and 6″ from the front. If you choose the Type B1 then you will need a vent clearance of 1″ with a 1″ top clearance and a 2″ front clearance. These are very important because if the venting is not properly installed you could end up with a bigger problem right from the start. If you are thinking about replacing your furnace for the upcoming heating season, choose the Weil Mc Lain 80% AFUE Gas Furnace.
