Actually propane operates at higher pressures, typically 10 inches as opposed to natural gases 6 inches water column. The difference is in the burner orifices. Propane uses a much smaller opening than natural gas. If teh air can be adjusted to maintain proper combustion, I do not see why the propane unit could not be orificed to give the same input. Water heaters do not change ratings when the gas type changes.

: we are thinking about getting a pro type range but it seems as tho lp has lower btu's than natural gas...I would supose this is in part due to lower preasures...I saw and article about using higher preasures but didn't pay attention because I never thought I'd be living where the only gas was lp...any answers or suggestions?
