View Full Version : modify LP Gas heater for LESS BTU ?
09-11-2009, 09:28 PM
I purchased a home that has a 70,000 BTU heater in a space (650sqft) that calls for a ~20,000 btu. It is an Empire RH-370 that runs on Propane. It cycles on/off very often and makes for very uncomfortable heat. I don't have the money to replace it, so I would like to modify it for less BTU output. Is this possible? I was thinking that I could change the existing burner to a burner from another ~25,000 BTU Empire Propane heater....or would I have to change the gas valve too?

What you want done, is dangerous.
A competent tech won't do it.
