    Hello, I would like to add a natural gas firepit to my backyard. I have designed the physical pit itself, which will be made out of concrete building blocks. I started researching the natural gas component and could not believe the complexity and cost. My backyard currently has two natural...

    I have a Charbroil Big Easy oiless turkey fryer which works great. The propane hose is only 3 ft, and I wanted to place it next to my Weber grill, and feed it from the grill's propane take. The hose was much too short to set the turkey frier next to the grill. So I removed the hose thinking I...

    Just bought a new Dyna-pro 30,000-60,000 btu little propane torpedo heater for the garage. I see them on jobs all the time (I'm a concrete finisher). My question is I'm hoping to be able to hang it from the ceiling 1) to keep it away from the kids 2) to save space. How low do I have to hang it...

    I recently bought a house that has two water heaters. A 40 gallon (propane) main one for most of the house and a much newer and smaller 17 gallon electric one that powers the master bathroom. The 40 gallon is on its last legs and I plan on replacing it very soon. My question is, I don't want to...

    I have a couple of 120 gallon LP tanks which feed my combi boiler. I want these tanks to also feed my dual fuel generator, but my gas company won't tee off the tanks for this purpose. While having my boiler cleaned, the tech said that I can tee off the line after the LP passes through the...

    Hi- We have a great big propane tank sitting in our back yard - it's designed to feed a pool heater that no longer functions and we'd rather just not have it. Is there any particular science to disconnecting this thing? I think the gauge says it's actually 65% full which makes it mildly...

    I am installing a Home Comfort DV21L propane heater. It is a direct vent through the wall model. I bought it as an open box deal at a heavy discount. I have a couple questions. 1) The gasket that goes around the 8" diameter vent pipe is missing. This gasket installs onto the wall bracket by way...

    I bought a Charmglow model #CGL250TE gas fireplace at a garage sale this weekend. It had never been used and therefore did not come with a hose or tank. There isn't a manual and I could not find one online. There is a sticker on the back that reads "This heater requires an external regulator to...

    I have a Bryant Plus 90 furnace propane that worked once since I turned it on a few days ago and hasn't since. The fan works and the thermostat works. I get code 31 whenever I attempt to start the furnace. The, for a lack of a better term, "little" blower motor comes on and the LED stays lit...

I have a small house, good windows, moderately well-insulated and baseboards. I did a heat load calc for 78 Delta T and came up with 56,000 BTU not including domestic...

    Hello to everybody! I have a Warm Morning stove (incinerator) which works on natural gas. I really need to be able to use it with portable propane tanks for using outdoors. I've been told that the valve is adjustable between nat. gas and LP, however I don't know how to do it. I'd appreciate...

    We are remodeling our kitchen, and are down to bare studs. I had a propane dealer come out to set a tank and run lines to the area where we will be installing a new cooktop. He told me that he did not want to run the new lines through the studs and behind the drywall "in case there were...

    There might be a better section to post this. I have a propane grill, about 15 years old - was a quality grill at the time I bought it. There are two burners - the left side was shooting yellow flames - I inspected the burner, and it was rusted out. I've replaced the burner, but the left...

    I have a rheem power vent LP hot water heater in my basement along an outside wall. The vent goes up about 2' then 1.5' to the outside wall in 4" PVC. Can I install a direct vent LP hot water heater instead of a power vent? Everything that I've read about direct vent says it just has to be...

    I am converting my Bryant furnace model 376CAV, from propane back to natural gas. I need the parts to convert the gas valve back to natural gas. The valve is brand new and was converted to burn propane when it was installed this summer. All of the kits go from NG to propane, not the other...
