Default LP conversion

I havent ever changed over a natural gas appliance to LP.
I beleive that the only thing to swap is an orafice. ( possibly a pressure regulator?)
The unit to be converted is a simple wall mounted ventless heater, set for natural gas.

What do I need to ask for and what type of "store" do I go to.... that will just sell me the part without a lot of BS.?

Well when I bought my stove it was set up for ng and it came with the orifice to swap for lp. As well as different jets for the oven and burners. But for a furnace it should be just an orifice. Any local hardware store shjould be able to help you out if you tell them what your doing.

Take the NG oriface with you. If you are worried or have questions go to a heating supply place not a box store.

Pilot and burner orafice and if it has a gas valve with a regulator on it that will also have to be changed.

I don't think I've run across a ventless heater that conversion parts were available for, contact the manufacturer for parts info.

You will need burner orifice(s), pilot orifice(or complete pilot burner assembly) and either a spring for the gas valve or a complete gas valve depending on how it's built. If you can get parts and are not changing the complete gas valve you will also need a way to measure gas pressure.

Almost makes it easier /cheaper to just buy one set up for LP,...hey?
