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!

Hi, I do not no the age of this unit, but when a furnace is installed, it is set up for Nat. gas., and they most always leave you a small package taped to or near the gas valve that has the spring and L.P. orfice in it, in case it is needed. See if you can find it first. If not, get all of the numbers from the main gas valve (mgv) and from the unit heating plate attached, b.t.u.If you can't find it, at the top of the main valve, you will see a brass colored screw slot.May be aluminum. Turn off gas and power. Remove the threaded screw cap and remove all small parts, a spring, a plastic or maybe aluminum round orfice, about 3 pieces. Keep them in the order you remove them.Replace with the L P Parts if you have them. If not, you will need to take the parts and all numbers you can get from valve and unit to a appliance parts store to purchase.You shouldn't have to adjust the gas pressure as now days they are the same for nat. and L P.About 3.4" of water colume. Thats a different name for pressure. Very easy for you to do. Good Luck, Shastalaker7

Dayton is primarily sold by www.Grainger.com . You must purchase a re-jetting kit (Natural Gas Valve) from them to accomplish this.
