Place Furnace in Final Location

WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people and mechanical equipment to lift,
move and install furnace.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
IMPORTANT: Place the furnace in the final location and position
it in the proper orientation to the house so that connecting ducts,
electrical and gas supplies is easily done. Hoisting may be
required.
Hoisting
NOTE: All access panels must be secured in place before
hoisting.
The unit should be hoisted with 2 lifting slings. Attach the slings
to rigging shackles that have been hooked through holes in the
base rail.
Place 2 spreaders on top of the unit to protect the unit from
damage from the pressure exerted by the slings. Make sure that
all equipment is rated to handle at least 750 lbs and that the
slings will not allow the unit to shift. See "Typical Sling
Configuration."
