Physical difference between natural & propane orfice

I have found a good deal on wall mounted gas heaters but not sure if they are natural gas or propane.  I have been told changing them out on these type heaters is dangerous so I do not want to go that route.  I just want to know is there a physical difference that we can tell.

Re: 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.

Wall heater emits smoky odor, pilot is yellow

Is this is a natural gas heater connected maybe to a LP/ propane gas?
That is what first comes to mind. In any case a good blowing out will get that flame a little prettier. But if you are using the wrong gas nothing can fix your problem. These heaters are not convertable like a stove. They are built to work for a specific gas.

I bought a comfort glow vent-less space heater model # CJ18NL. It had a natural gas valve on it and the guy said I could put on a propane valve, which I did. It's not lighting. Is this model only good...

According to the Comfort Glow Website, this is a Natural Gas unit. If you use propane you will need
a minumum 100# LP Cylinder and a pressure regulator. I have a Comfort Glow unit and went through the same process.

If you have it hooked up to a 30lb cylinder without a regulator I would think that if you purged the gas line
of air you should be able to light the pilot.

On a new unit you can expect to push the spark ignitor button at least a dozen times while holding
down the gas valve button.

Good Luck

How do I convert vanguard VMH26TPA wall heater from propane to natural gas?

You would have to get a conversion kit, which usually
is new orfices and a spring that goes into the gas valve. The kit would probably be cheaper than buying a gas valve and the orfices seperately

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.

Trouble with waterheater


Most all gas appliances can use propane or natural gas, but they ship from the factory with orifices for one or the other.

Propane is rated at 11 iwg, natural gas at 7 iwg (where iwg=inches water gauge. 27 iwg=1 psig) (it takes a different regulator spring to handle this small difference in pressure.

A propane orifice will be smaller than a natural gas orifice.

The store that you bought the water heater should know what they sold you, and know if they have a kit to convert the regulator and orifices.

Natural Gas To Propane on a model # Vn2000bt

There should be a conversion kit that came with the unit plus installation instructions. If not, then the type of kit you need will be identified in the unit paperwork. You may want to have a technician perform this task if you are unsure in just the slightest. Natural gas and propane use different sized nozzels for dispersing the gas for proper ignition. If not installed properly it could cause incomplete combustion, which = CARBON MONOXIDE = ETERNAL SLEEP. Hope this helps!
