    Psst - that's horizontal

    The insulated condensate drain is a nice touch. The blower unit will suck someday getting it out.

    Edit - run the strut the length of the pan and carry each end with the rod running directly next to the junction of the furnace and duct system.

    Just another approach we run unistrut parallel to the unit but 6" wider across joist beams and then you have options to where you want your all thread to drop. Plus you can run lag bolts into the joist and never have to worry about weight. This after customer complained of water dripping from ceiling below attic where the company had just installed A/C AHU. went up there and unit prob wasn't pitched right the water went into over flow and the extra weight pulled drywall screws right out of joist. I now also have floats in pans and drain lines and pipe pans with sensor as well. Looks like over kill but the $$ spent for a few sensors and some unistrut save me from myself. Also when things hang, techs(I know no one here) have a tendency to pull up on them or lean. If the weight is 100lbs I want it to carry 200 at least.

    My first thought, and the coil will be the same problem.

    I will say it is a clean looking install.
