Category: Downflow Furnaces
Downflow furnaces are a type of gas furnace that are designed to blow heated air downward through ductwork installed below the furnace. They are typically used in basements, crawl spaces, or attics where the furnace can be installed on a platform or suspended from the ceiling. Downflow furnaces have several advantages, such as saving space, improving efficiency, and reducing noise. However, they also have some drawbacks, such as requiring special venting, being more expensive, and posing a fire hazard if not installed properly.
