Question about Reddy Heating & Cooling
Posted by Anonymous on
Unit goes under sure heat name also.
My unit emitted unburnt gas smell the minute pilot started,
and was annoying during burner operation.
I discovered they built unit with primary pilot that had 2 ports.
They used LP and sealed off natural gas,instead turning lp/nat
knob on back activates second pilot for natural gas use.
This means natural gas goes thru LP pilot orifice and burns
slightly off during normal natural gas use(by design).
The unused natural gas orifice has 1 air mix hole and the LP orifice
has 2 air mix holes.
I carefully plugged 1 of the holes in the LP orifice and suddenly
pilot gas flame seated correctly on orifice port.Gone was the
unburnt odor of natural gas.
The typical flame in a flame appearance now was exhibited by
the small pilot,secondary pilot remained consistent with manual
Of course, to use with LP I would have to open blocked air mix
hole in addition to the other changes per manual.
Hope this helps someone with similar condition.

Yes. the orifice has a tiny hole in it.It is located at the tip of the pilot before the flame, and at the tip of the injectors. Natural gas and propane molecules are different sizes in the vapor state. The orifice regulates how much vapor comes out. You need to change the orifice in the pilot and the burner injectors for it to work properly. If you don't you will get a very large flame or a very small one, depending which way convert from. If you have the papers from the company that made the heater, they should be able to help you changer over. You also may need to make some adjustment if you are at high altitude, 2,000' or more, as the air is thinner (less oxygen) so the regulator needs to be set to higher volume.

yes, have a qualified technician do the conversion. You will need to order the conversion kit. It is listed in the back of the installation manual (available on-line).

SOURCE: convert from lp to natural gas
you need to go to the manuel and check if you can retrofit the heater to natural gas. there is a difference in the ORIFICE size. or check to see if there is a phone number to the manufacture and talk to them. THE BEST THING FOR YOU TO DO IS TO GET A CERTIFIED A/C PERSON TO DO IT, IT IS VERY DANGEROUS IF YOU GET THE WRONG ORIFICE SIZE !

SOURCE: natural gas to lp gas
It would be costly.They are not shipped to be interchangable like a range. They come in a Nat gas version or a LP version. Your best bet would be to get a veriable pressure knob like they use on a turkey frying rig and tweak down the pressure, I am not sure that would even work. It could be done but it would be expensive. You would need to swap out the pilots and the orifices.
