Question about Heating & Cooling
How many gallons of propane will this Carrier furnace use a month? I have the option of getting a free Carrier furnace and installing it in my home which is currently using oil for heating. I would like to know if installing this furnace would be worth it. It boils down to how many gallons of PROPANE this furnace will burn a month and how much that would cost. I know I will need to buy the conversion kit as it is set up for natural gas.I need to figure this out to know if i will be saving money by switching to propane from oil. I could use 125 gallons of oil per month. If I estimate the average price at $3.60/ gal. I could easily spend $450/mo for oil. The current price for propane per gallon is $2.99 as of today. If anyone can help me figure this out based on the furnace's specs and this info about my home it would be greatly appreciated! The specs on this unit are as follows.. Carrier model # 58PAV111-16 Input BTU/HR: 110,000 Output BTU/HR 89,000 House specs... 2100 sq.ft Newer Windows insulation is moderate
The furnace manufacturer specs is 89,000 btu/hr. Compare that to the btu's/hr on your existing oil burning furnace. If the oil furnace is 89 or 90,000 btu then the Carrier is sized about the same as the oil burner you have. It will operate at about the same btu's/hr. so that tells me you will save money in the long run. I know this don't answer your initial question but energy consumption (both fuel and electric), is calculated by a load on the house, which has many different variables. Hope this helps!

Yes you will need to buy the orifice to convertit to propane.
After you install the orifice, you will need to also adjust the manifold pressure with a monometer. And you will also need to put the stickers on the gas valve that will state that this unit has been converted for use with propane. If you have any other questions feel free to comment back.

not only do you need the nozzles....you will need the spring changed in the gas valve and a manometer to set the proper gas pressure output from the valve.If you change the jets only you could do alot of damage to your furnace.

easy way to fine the high usage is to turn everything off and watch your meter and have someone start turning thing back on and watch for the most usage of power

Hello there. If the parts were saved, they can be reused. If not, contact your propane provider and tell them that you plan to convert back to natural gas. They will be able to get you the kit you need, and will possibly have a technician come out and install it for a fee.

A 100k btus burns roughly 1 gallon of propane per hour. A400k btu heater burns approximately 4 gallons (actual is somewhere between 4 - 4.18 gallons per hour.) That's assuming that the heateris running non stop during this time period.
I know your question was fairly simple and disp notrequire a whole lot of information but we appreciate you giving us somefeedback!
