Furnace to Cased Coil Connection...


How should the connection between an upflow furnace and a cased coil be made? Do you screw them together? Do you typically seal the joint with a gasket or tape? Thanks.

Not the stuff you buy at the dollar store. Buy a high grade at HDepot. Your plenum can run up to 200 degF. Over a period of time the cheap stuff may fall apart.
