What is propane gas? Unlike natural gas, propane gas is a by-product of two other processes, natural gas processing and petroleum refining. As such, its price is subject to a number of different market influences. Propane is a liquid at -50 deg F and boils at -44 deg F. It is a clean-burning environmentally friendly fuel that is not a direct greenhouse gas when released into the atmosphere. It In its gaseous state it is heavier than air and will settle to the lowest parts of your home if there is a leak.
Converting Appliances to LP Gas: Gas appliances leave the factory designed to work with a particular type of gas at a specific pressure. The conversion of any gas appliance to another fuel may involve not only replacing the orifices (fixed and pilot), but appliance regulators, burners and possibly the venting as well. Contact Red Tag Appliance to find out if the appliance you are considering purchasing comes with an LP conversion kit. Even if the appliance comes with a conversion kit the conversion should be performed by qualified professional.
