    Just a follow up to bring my saga to a conclusion.
    The gas utility company tied into the building and I converted all the units from propane back to natural(they were ordered 5 years as nat. gas and were converted to propane at that time in anticipation of nat. gas coming one day).
    Everything went well.
    Upon startup a few of the hot air furnaces clearly had a "hotter" flame for a second or two but other than that no discernible issues were noted.
    It's been about a month now and the first set of gas bills are starting to trickle in,with noticeably lower costs vs.propane.
    The tenants are happy!
    Thanks again for everyone's help!

    I wanna see proof that propane is mixed with Natural gas to bump up demand. I have never heard or read this and I am in a cold climate with NG

    I got a new idea NG furnace propane kit gives it a shot of propane on those colder days extra BTU when you need em like a NOS kit for your car.
