90% furnaces are condensing furnaces which means they produce condensation from the byproducts of the gas they burn.That moisture can be in the heat exchanger,inducer housing,collector box,vent pipes,drain... .If the attic is in an environment where it will freeze,damage or plugging up could result.Ductwork can be put in an attic but is only as good as it is insulated. If duct and/or insulation is not sealed well,condensation can happen.
