Access in the attic would be a problem and then you also have to build it into a room so you don't cause ice dams. Better would be to find a spot on the main floor or even in the garage. Perhaps a horizontal furnace place high in the basement and instant hot water mounted on main floor.

Why do furnaces need to be placed in an area where there within 10 degrees of room temperature?

It doesnt need to be but its alot more efficient to have it in a insulated space that is part of the house
