When transitioning between different types of fuel, it is important to be aware of the physical properties that differentiate them. Propane is denser than air, while natural gas is less dense than air. This difference in density needs to be taken into account when modifying gas lines from the house to the burner tips. In many cases, the gas lines running to propane (LP) units are smaller than what is necessary for running the same appliance on natural gas.
This necessitates the need for a larger gas line. For example, if the current gas line running into your home is ½”, then at least ¾” line will be needed for the conversion to natural gas to ensure that the appliances in the home function properly. However, this is dependent on size and it must be correctly sized for the transition from propane to natural gas. In some cases, certain parts of the gas lines will be correctly sized and can be used in this transition process, while in other cases the lines will need to be removed and larger lines installed.
And remember, only licensed installers should be doing this sort of installation work. Our team at Pemberton is certified to inspect and service your system to bring natural gas to your home.Book Your Gas Conversion
It’s also important to acknowledge the process for proper conversion of gas appliances from propane (LP) to natural gas with the use of special regulators and orifices that allow the proper amount of gas into the burner so that it can burn correctly. And remember, not all appliances can be converted. Depending on the age, make and model, and type of appliance (hot water heater, gas log, furnace), some have conversion kits available while some do not. These should only be put on by factory-authorized appliance representatives or certified Natural Gas installers.Schedule Gas Conversion
