These Companies Offer Propane Conversion Kits and Services

Check These Resources When Considering LPG Conversion

By

Despite being low in numbers, there are companies available in the U.S. that can perform propane conversions. To accomplish this, they must receive the required U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval. In addition, a qualified system retrofitter, or QSR, must handle the installation.

Below is a list of propane conversion companies with an online presence that provide conversion services and/or conversion kits. Those marked with an asterisk were identified from information gleaned from the U.S. Department of Energy. If ordering a kit, be sure it is approved by the EPA. Secondly, consider whether you have the skills necessary to perform the conversion yourself or know someone who does. If you know of a company not listed that is certified to perform propane conversions, please let me know and I will consider adding them to this list.
