When do you use a horizontal vs. vertical constant hanger?

The only difference between ahorizontal and vertical constant is the physical space that they fill up. Horizontal constants are used mostly when vertical space is not available; the spring can is aligned horizontally, while permitting vertical movements. Vertical constants are used mainly when horizontal space is not available.
