I have 3 natural gas fire places. i would like to know if i can change it to propane. i'm thinking i would just have to change the logs and hook a tank up outside. can some tell me if this would work.


Hello,
Typically gas log sets are factory made for either natural gas or propane. If you want to use them on propane you need to find out if a LP conversion kit is available for your brand/model #. Ask the place where you bought them or ask the company that installed them (if you didn't put them in yourself). If they can be changed over to propane, then you will need to buy the propane tanks, regulator and gasline or just have your local propane company put in a pair of 100# cylinders for each fireplace (or 420# cylinder to service all 3 fireplaces) with an auto-switchover regulator. They can also do the conversion, if the conversion kits are available. Let me now if you have any other questions. Douglas

I had purchased this unit RMO-80LPT heater several years back, I never installed unitl this week. the sales en at the time told me it was gas/propane. Now seeing the -80LPT on the side is it propane...


The orifices for a propane heater are much smaller so you will not be able to get the natural gas to flow properly with the current orifices.

The both the natural gas and propane valve are 1/2 psi so the valve can be used but the regulator for propane is typically 8-11 inches on the wc table and the natural gas is typically 3 lbs on the wc.

You may be able to drill out the orifices in the burner and in the pilot ods and get the unit to work.

I have an empire wall heater that was converted to natural gas how do i convert it back to propane?


you will need a propane conversion kit designed for that particular model heater.
which would most likely consist of a heavier spring for the gas valve and orifices for the burners depending on how many burners you have.
Most all gas heaters come thru the factory set up for natural gas and most have a kit available for conversion to LP (Propane) You will also need a manometer or a gas pressure tester to check the incoming and outgoing pressures from the green (2ndary )regulator outside your house to the gas valve inlet side,usually 11 to 14" WC( water column) pressure( static) 14" being MAX!!
Outlet pressure with burners running 10-11" WC approx. This info should come with the conversion kit if available. If you are not comfortable working with gas then find someone who is, for safety reasons.

How to change gas orfice to propane glass smokes up. soot


Is this unit originally set up for natural gas? If so, the burner oriface and the gas valve need to be retro-fitted to propane. This is something only a qualified service technician should attempt as an incorrect retro-fit could cause an explosion resulting in someone getting hurt or even killed.

Want to change Dayton 3E133E from natural gas to Propane


Would have to have conversion kit IF available. Must get from mfr. The Dayton brand is owned exclusively by W.W.Grainger. Not sure if someone else makes their furnaces for them. Start w/ Grainger, if they won't sell to you maybe they will give you the name of a company who will work on it. Good Luck!

Physical difference between natural & propane orfice


Merry Lynn, there will be no physical differences between Natural Gas heaters and Propane Gas heaters. Check the model number of the unit, it may have a N or P or LP printed at the end of it to distinguish which gas it uses. The plate that is attached to the heater should indicate the type of gas it uses.

 

DO NOT try to convert this heater to another gas.
