All gas heaters can be converted from one type of gas to another, be it natural or propane. The problem is getting the orifice retrofit parts that fit that particular brand. If the manufacturer doesn't make them, then you are left with no choice.

Is it possible to convert a natural gas heater to propane


Sorry but it would not be worth doing all the work and spending lots of money buying parts, it would be better to buy a new one.

Can l run propane in my 606TR heater lnsteAd of natural gAs?


You cannot simply go ahead and connect propane to it. A conversion kit must first be installed consisting of a different burner valve. In many localities that must be done by a qualified service tech., to minimise the risk of fire or explosion. Go to a retail outlet specialising in gas heaters and ask advice on this unit.

I have a RTA patio heater and on the box says it will work with LP or Propane but in the manual doesnt go into how to hook it or what needs to be done to LP connection can this be hooked into a home supply...


You didn't specify which model you have (Table Top or Tall Patio Heater). In any event, it doesn't matter, as LP and Propane are one in the same. However, it can not be converted to Natural Gas. Rita makes a separate Natural Gas model for that type of hookup.

I have 3 natural gas fire places. i would like to know if i can change it to propane. i'm thinking i would just have to change the logs and hook a tank up outside. can some tell me if this would work.


Hello,
Typically gas log sets are factory made for either natural gas or propane. If you want to use them on propane you need to find out if a LP conversion kit is available for your brand/model #. Ask the place where you bought them or ask the company that installed them (if you didn't put them in yourself). If they can be changed over to propane, then you will need to buy the propane tanks, regulator and gasline or just have your local propane company put in a pair of 100# cylinders for each fireplace (or 420# cylinder to service all 3 fireplaces) with an auto-switchover regulator. They can also do the conversion, if the conversion kits are available. Let me now if you have any other questions. Douglas

I had purchased this unit RMO-80LPT heater several years back, I never installed unitl this week. the sales en at the time told me it was gas/propane. Now seeing the -80LPT on the side is it propane...


The orifices for a propane heater are much smaller so you will not be able to get the natural gas to flow properly with the current orifices.

The both the natural gas and propane valve are 1/2 psi so the valve can be used but the regulator for propane is typically 8-11 inches on the wc table and the natural gas is typically 3 lbs on the wc.

You may be able to drill out the orifices in the burner and in the pilot ods and get the unit to work.

Dear sir i have a empire/corcho 1500 btu heater and i have a 70 gallon tank of propane tank but the heater says natural gas can i do this or do i have to use a conversion kit and do i do that and where do...


First off, yes you can convert it to propane. The difference is that the orifice, which should be in the conversion kit, has a smaller hole for the gas to pass through and needs to be changed. Secondly, the air consumption on propane is greater than that of natural gas and for that reason you need to open the air venturi, usually to the max to allow the largest amount of air to enter. Don't overlook the pilot light as well, it also needs to have a different orifice installed. You can find new orifices and/or conversion kits at the store where you buy your propane, assuming it's not a big box retailer. Go to a local propane supply location for the parts. Another option is to go directly to the manufacturers home page and order the propane orifices.

Trouble with waterheater


DO NOT USE THIS HEATER UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CHECKED OUT BY A PROFESSIONAL!

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.

I received a Gas heating system from my dad and would like to know if I can switch it from Natural to propane gas. my model # RFN28TA.


Most furnaces come from the factory set for natural gas. If you contact the manufacturer to find the local distributor for that particular unit . you should be able to order a propane conversion kit. The kits are very easy for a trained heating guy to convert. A good handy man should be cable to do this changeover. BUT the manometer that is needed to properly calibrate the gas valve is not worth the purchase price for one application. I recommend that you use a trained heating guy.

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.
