Hi,

Unfortunately you cannot mount this type of A/C vertically. The compressor must be in the upright position or it will be damaged and not function in a short period of time.

No, this unit is made to be horizontal, if you install it vertically you will run into major problems with the unit, and end up paying more money to either buy a proper unit or get that one repaired.

No you can not install a horizontal A/C unit Vertically. It will not work properly. You will have all the freon leak out ou the condenser if you do that.

SOURCE: I was wondering if you can install the air

NOOOOO. The compressor in it is mounted and can only sit one way. If you install it sideways it will burn up the compressor

Are the filters for my Ruud 80 plus furnace supposed to be installed vertically or horizontally?


Hello Donna Haslam

What ever EFECTIVELY BLOCKS all air
BEFORE it enters your heater...

Check out your air intake...

If this is the DESIGN EXERCISE it feels like...
Consider buying an INTAKE HOUSING
that takes a STANARD SIZE air filter.

FILTER...
AT THE INTAKE is a superior location
because it prevent dust & "stuff" from
EVER ENTERING your DUCT work.

Wimdow Air Cond.


Sorry, that's a no. There are, however, window air conditioners made for casement style windows which are tall and narrow. I know GE used to have them. Check geappliances.com. There are also " portable " air conditioners which sit on your floor and vent through hoses to a window.

Vertical to horizontal


most all airhandlers have a second pan included . if not they can usually be purchased with directions to mount to the side of the coil for horizontal right or horizontal left application. remove the front panel and take a flash light look inside and you should see a cookie sheet looking pan on one side of the coil usually on the right side coil can usually be removed and reinstalled with the top of the coil facing the filter or the blower depending on how you want the air to go . just be sure the pan is under the coil and you will be ok . i have actually seen pros install them with the pan above the coil! and of course they flood the place. water of course goes down hill. the square donut pan used for vertical install stays in place as found. you will need to install a second emergency pan to catch any backup drips especially if you put it in an attic. you should find them at a sheet metal shop and they are basically a pan even bigger than the airhandler that catches any drip. it should be connected to a drain to the outside also and a float switch installed in case it fails to shut off the ac. better to get a no cool call than a flooded house call. try to put the second drain out over a door or window where it will be noticed before damage. good luck and remember you will have to relocate ductwork, electric drains filters refrigerant lines and if its in an attic a decked service area and a light and an outlet are required here in fla. good luckagain.
