In our garage we have a wooden stand built with 2x4's. It's supporting our water heater and gas furnace. There was a water leak a few years back that caused some water damage.

What I want to do is temporarily disconnect/remove the gas furnace off the stand so that I can clean up water damage or replace the stand. Is this something a professional HVAC should be doing or can I do it myself. If a professional is needed how much do you suppose it would cost?

If there's no AC you can do it easy enough. Unscrew the duct from the furnace,disconnect the flue and gas and electrical. If there's AC then you might want to hire the job out since a damaged coil or kinked lineset will be costly.

Sorry I should have been more specific.

On top of the furnace is an evaporator coil and something else on top of the coil.. don't know what that is but it's padded with insulation.

Any idea how much a professional would charge to disconnect and reconnect?

Thanks.

Post a picture--There may be a way to temporarily support the unit with two pieces of 3 inch angle iron

and some blocking. That would avoid any mechanical work.--they don't weigh a lot.

While I have you here.. See that wooden framed box on the right side wall under the white piping? What is it?
