Im in the process of installing a new humidifier, however, due to the way the furnace was installed the Furnace output duct has the A-coil mounted about 14" above the furnace top and this leaves very little room above the A-coil and the ceiling.

1) Can I mount the bypass duct below the A-coil (All the manuals say 6" above the coil, but i assume that because usually the coil it right above the furnace.

2) Can the bypass duct be 5-6" highier or lower than the humdifier? (I have a space issue on the supply and return lines and can't mount them level to eachother).
