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.

    Wrong! Most heaters come set up for natural gas or propane. They are NOT convertible. Consult your local propane dealer.

Can I convert my natural gas glo-warm wall heater to propane?


Converting gas appliances normally entails the replacement of a jet that controls the flow of gas and in most cases, the manufacturer will (or will not) have replacement jets available. If they do, it should not be costly or difficult since they are often only screwed on.

My propane furnace sounds like a blowtorch when it kicks on but it also happens to my cooking stove


Hi, working with natural gas and converting them over to propane for the country folk, I do indeed know the sound. You might want to take a look at the burner section for any signs of carbon,soot, build up any where.If the gas pressure has changed for some reason, you will get this blow torch sound.You would need the correct meter to check or measure the inches of W.C. Inlet pressure not to exceed 1/2p.s.I. Outlet for propane has changed over the last 10 years, you will now find on the MGV (main gas valve) for propane is almost the same as with natural gas.W.C. is a measurement used in reading gas pressures, stands for inches of water-column. Recommended pressures are well marked in manuals and on valve its self. Right at 2.5 to 4" w.c. So, check for carbon build up and clean if needed.If it burns radical, pressures should be checked with a gas pressure test kit.Yellow Jacket makes a good one. I hope this has been of some help to you, Sincerely,
