Hi, Good question you have there and I for one am glad you asked it. Your system will burn way way rich air fuel ratio mixture as that LP gas requires much smaller jetting simply because its heat output per given volume is roughly 3 times that of natural gas. Be careful with any kind of fuel in your home, (especially) LP fuel. I have seen houses blown completely off their slabs and foundations because of a fuel leak matched with some form of spark. ( Usually an electronic furnace ignitor ) NOT ALWAYS,,,, but, you get the point. Have your LP supplier to rejet your furnace and set it up for you. Usually if you are changing over to their fuel they do it at nominal prices and sometimes nothing. Hope this helps: Jimiwane

What is the difference between gas and natural gas and if your wall heater's pilot is too big maybe 8 how can you lower it to maybe 1?

In the United States their is only Natural Gas and Propane Gas. If you don't have a Propane Tank in your yard you have Natural Gas. If you have a propane gas furnace and want to change it to a Natural Gas furnace you have to have a heating/ac guy do it or you could burn your house down. The change in pilot size is directly proportional to the btu output of your furnace and is custom sized for each different make and model (1000's of different models in the US)
