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

If natural gas is hooked up to a stove that is set up for LP gas, the flame on the stove will burn too high and could potentially cause a fire hazard. The orifice size for natural gas is larger than that for LP gas, so the pressure is too high when natural gas is used instead. It is important to use the correct type of gas for the stove to ensure safe and efficient operation.

You will get way too big a flame [think flamethrower]. Also a very inefficient burn. Nat gas uses a larger orifice jet than propane...to safely use propane the orifice must be replaced with a smaller one suitable for propane.

Natural gas requires a higher volume than LP, so the stove will not get very hot, if it works at all.

Can you hook a grill propane tank to your house stove?

As long as your house stove is not running off of natural gas (a pipeline routed through your neighborhood with a big meter on the side of your house = natural gas). If your house has a big huge gas tank on the side of it, it is propane, and that is what those bottled gas things are that you buy at the gas station. Disconnect the gas line at the huge tank outside your house, and connect the small tank you got at the gas station directly to the line right there. I have done it myself before, and I am also a plumber with experience in working and installing gas lines. Joeman
