Question about Reddy Heater-30-55,000 BTU Variable
It is propane already, the RN30 is a LP (liquid propane) forced air open space heater mainly used for shops or construction. Now if you want to switch a device that is manufactured for one fuel source to another (i.e. LP to Natural gas) you need the following. A regulator that is designed for the fuel you seek to use, (the regulator will provide the pressure drop allowing for proper air fuel mixture, aways make sure you have adequate combustion air for your fuel source as well). You will also need the correct orifice size for the fuel spraying tip, nozzle, injector, etc. Any appliance that uses on gas can be converted to another with the correct parts. Some manufactures of appliances make Lp or natural gas conversion kits.
-things to think about- if you are going from propane to natural gas you almost always step down in gas pressure, and 1 cubic foot LP requires 24 cubic feet of combustion air to properly burn and has 2500 btus per cubic foot, and is about 1.5 times heaver than air. 1 cubic foot of natural gas requires 10 cubic feet of combustion air and has an average of 1050 btus per cubic foot and is about 60% the weight of air.
