    for many applications it is as simple as changing out the orifice to a smaller one w/ a simple wrench. Check with the manufacturer and you may be able to pick up the new orifice for little to nothing.

    Quote often the orfices are universal sort of things. Check with the company who is supplying you with propane.

    I think I'd try to find an owner's/install manual BEFORE
    I started to modify your gas log. At least see if the rating plate
    indicates an LP option...It may NOT be convertible
    or it may require MORE than just an orifice change.
    Some units require a completely different burner for LP & NG.
    You'd probably be better off selling the NG set & buying
    another that's rated for LP...

    This any help? http://www.desatech.com/gaslogs.htm

    If you choose your model number it gives you an option in the center of the page to click on for natural gas to propane conversion.

    In playing around choosing different models it seems that the vent free models can't from what I read.
