proper amount of air into the burner. This can cause
incomplete combustion of the gas, flashback, and/or possible yellow tipping.
HANG07, HALP09, and HAC1PS01-14 conversion kits are
required when installing the following units above their
maximum rated altitudes:
In addition to using smaller orifices to reduce the fuel input,
a different pressure switch must be used at altitudes above
the rated altitudes shown in table 1 because of the reduced
air density. This is required regardless of the heat content
of the fuel used.

II. Pressure Switch Installation
Increases in altitude reduce atmospheric pressure and
oxygen content. These reductions effect operating pressures as well as the amount of oxygen which is available for
combustion. At higher altitudes, the induced draft blower
moves the appropriate CFM with less oxygen and produces
a lower pressure at the pressure tap. To maintain a proper
air to fuel ratio and to provide proper safeguards under
adverse conditions (i.e., blocked flue, blocked drains, etc.),
changes must be made to the unit orifice and pressure
switches. See Table 1 to see what units are affected at
what altitude.
CAUTION
To avoid the risk of fire, property damage,
or personal injury, shut off gas supply first,
then disconnect the electrical supply before
proceeding with conversion.
1. Shut off gas and disconnect electrical supply.
2. Remove pressure switch(es) by removing mounting
screws, disconnecting rubber hose and disconnecting
wiring (see Figure 1 for typical location).
NOTE: Failure to follow these procedures can lead to
inefficient and/or incomplete combustion, exposure to lifethreatening CO and CO2 levels, and possibly premature
heat exchanger failure.

The orifices in the high altitude kits have been selected as
a result of testing with the American Gas Association. They
will provide appropriate derating at altitudes above rated
altitudes shown in table 1. The selection is based on nonderated gas (about 1000 BTU/ft 3 for natural gas, and 2500
BTU/ft 3 for propane gas). If your gas supply has been
derated for the altitude, contact your gas supplier for orifice
sizing.
3. Install the required high altitude pressure switch(es).
For single-stage furnaces, see table 2.
For two-stage furnaces (GUIS, GCIS, GUIV), see
table 3.
Do not derate by adjusting the manifold pressure to a lower
pressure setting than what is specified on the furnace
nameplate. With a lower density of air and a lower manifold
pressure at the burner orifice, the orifice will not aspirate the

5. Reinstall the gas manifold and reconnect the gas valve
low voltage wiring. Install new wire ties making sure
that wires do not droop between orifices and burners.
6. If converting to propane gas, see PROPANE GAS
CONVERSION section for additional instructions. If
remaining on natural gas, skip to OPERATIONAL
CHECK.
IV. Propane Gas Conversion
IMPORTANT: Propane gas is heavier than air and does not
vent upward as with natural gas fuels.
WARNING
PERSONAL INJURY HAZARD
If your propane gas furnace is installed in
a basement, an excavated area or a
confined space, we strongly recommend
that you contact your propane supplier
about installing a warning device that would
alert you to a gas leak.
Propane gas is heavier than air and any
leaking gas can settle in any low areas or
confined spaces.
Propane gas odorant may fade, making the
gas undetectable except with a warning
device.
An undetected gas leak would create a
danger of explosion or fire. If you suspect
the presence of gas, follow the instructions
on the cover of the furnace installation
manual. Failure to do so could result in
SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
CAUTION
To prevent premature heat exchanger
failure, follow the instructions below to
remove all metal inserts from the heat
exchanger tubes during propane gas
conversions.
1. IMPORTANT: Remove the metal inserts from the
entrance of all heat exchanger tubes, as shown in
Figure 6. This should be done as part of the “ORIFICE
INSTALLATION” procedure.
2. Replace the gas valve regulator spring with one of the
new springs included in this propane gas conversion
kit. If the unit is equipped with a White-Rodgers 36E
gas valve, (Figures 7 & 8), use Spring Kit #92-0659. If
the unit is equipped with a Honeywell VR8205, SV9500,
or SV9501 gas valve, (Figure 9, 12, &13), use Spring
Kit #393691. If the unit is equipped with a Robertshaw
7222 gas valve, (Figure 10), use Spring Kit #54300. In
each case, change the regulator spring per instructions
included with that particular regulator spring. Discard
unused spring kits.
WARNING
NOTE: White-Rodgers 36E96 (Figure 11), gas valves, do
not require a spring kit. Discard all spring kits.
PERSONAL INJURY HAZARD
Iron oxide (rust) can reduce the level of
odorant in propane gas. A gas detecting
device is the only reliable method to detect
a propane gas leak. Contact your propane
supplier about installing a gas detecting
warning device to alert you in the event
that a gas leak should develop.
Failure to detect a propane gas leak could
result in an EXPLOSION or FIRE which
could cause SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY
OR DEATH.
3. Attach the label (found in the spring kit) to the gas valve,
indicating propane conversion.
4. Attach conversion data plate, with correct input rating,
adjacent to the unit rating plate.
5. Post “conversion date certificate” adjacent to the furnace.

5. Check The Manifold Pressure
On single stage units, set the manifold pressure to
10.0” W.C. (water column). For direct vent (GUD,
GCD) furnaces, see “Setting GUD and GCD Manifold
Pressure” before setting pressure (Figure 12).
On two stage units, adjust the high stage manifold
pressure to 10.0” W.C. and the low stage manifold
pressure to 6.0” W.C. (Figure 11). The White-Rodgers
36E96 gas valve requires a 3/32” allen wrench to adjust
the manifold pressures.
A tapped opening is provided in the gas valve (Figures
7 through 13) to facilitate measurement of the manifold
pressure. A "U Tube” manometer having a scale range
from 0 to 12 inches of water column should be used for
this measurement (Figure 14). The manifold pressure
must be measured with the burners operating, and with
the burner box cover (cover not used on all models) in
place.
Single Stage Furnaces
To adjust the pressure regulator, remove the adjustment screw cover on the gas valve. Turn out (counterclockwise) to decrease pressure, turn in (clockwise) to
increase pressure. (“Manifold Pressure Adjustment” in
Figure 7 through 13). Only small variations in gas flow
should be made by means of the pressure regulator
adjustment. For natural gas, the manifold pressure
must be between 3.2 and 3.8 inches water column (3.5”
nominal). For propane gas, the manifold pressure
must be between 9.7 and 10.3 inches water column
(10.0” nominal). Any major changes in flow must be
made by changing the size of the burner orifices.
Two Stage Furnaces
To adjust the pressure regulator, remove both high and
low adjustment screws on the gas valve (Figure 11).
Using a 3/32” allen wrench turn out (counterclockwise)
to decrease pressure, turn in (clockwise) to increase
pressure.
a. Adjust the low stage regulator to increase low stage
output so furnace will light and carryover.
b. Adjust the high stage regulator to required manifold
pressure setting.
c. Reinstall high stage cap screw.
d. Recheck manifold pressure setting with cap on.
e. Adjust low stage regulator to required manifold pressure setting.
f. Reinstall low stage cap screw.
g. Make sure furnace operates at the proper manifold
pressure at both high and low stage outputs.
For propane gas, the manifold pressure must be between 9.7 and 10.3 inches water column (10.0 nominal). The low stage manifold pressure must be between 5.7 and 6.3 inches water column (6.0 nominal).
V. Operational Check
1. Start the furnace using the procedures in the section,
“Operating Your Furnace” in the installation instructions. In addition, perform the following checks and
adjustments.
2. The position of the ignitor, relative to the burner, is not
affected by this conversion procedure but the ignitor
should be visually inspected for any damage at this
point.
3. Check For Leaks - Leak check the orifice threads by
using a soap solution. Reinstall the burner box cover.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of fire or explosion, do not
use a flame to check for leaks.
4. Check Gas Input And Pressures
Check inlet gas pressure. With the power and gas off,
connect a water manometer or adequate gauge to the
“inlet pressure tap” of the gas valve. With the power and
gas on, put the furnace into heating cycle and turn on
all other gas consuming appliances. For natural gas,
the inlet gas pressure should be between 5.0 and 10.0
inches of water. For propane gas the inlet gas pressure
should be between 11.0 and 13.0 inches of water.

6. Check The Gas Input - Natural Gas
To measure the gas input using the gas meter, proceed
as follows:
a. Turn off gas supply to all other appliances except the
furnace.
b. With the furnace operating, time the smallest dial on
the meter for one complete revolution. If this is a 2
cubic foot dial, divide the seconds by 2; if it is a 1 cubic
foot dial, use the seconds as is. This gives the
seconds per cubic foot of gas being delivered to the
furnace.
c. INPUT = (GAS HTG VALUE) x (3600) ÷ (SEC. PER
CUBIC FOOT)
Example: Natural gas with a heating value of 1000
BTU per cubic foot and 34 seconds per cubic foot as
determined by Step 2, then:
Input = 1000 x 3600 ÷ 34 = 106,000 BTU per Hour
NOTE: BTU content of the gas should be obtained
from the gas supplier. (3600 is a conversion factor
between seconds and hours).
This measured input must agree with the derates for
the furnace model, input, and installation altitude as
indicated in the appropriate tabel (Table 2, Table 6,
or Table 7). See Derating Examples 1-4 for use of
tables.
d. Relight all other appliances turned off in Step 6a. Be
sure all pilot burners are operating.
Derating Example 1: GUIA115A40 at 8500 ft.
Sea level input = 115,000 BTU/Hr.
From Table 2: Derate at 8500 ft. = 27±4%
Since we are at the mid point of the elevation range, we
use the mid point of the derate; 27%.
New Input = 115000 x (1 - .27) = 83950 BTU/hr
Derating Example 2: GUIC045DA30 at 7500 ft.
Sea level input = 46,000 BTU/hr
From Table 6 rate at 7500 ft. = 30,590 BTU/hr
Derating Example 3: GUIS115CA50 at 4500 ft.
Sea level input =
80,000 BTU/hr (Low Stage)
115,000 BTU/hr (High Stage)
From Table 7 rates at 4500 ft.=
73,600 BTU/hr (Low Stage)
100,050 BTU/hr (High Stage)
Derating Example 4: PGB36C0902D at 6500 ft.
Sea level input = 92,000 BTU/hr (High Stage)
From Table 6 rate at 6500 ft.= 63,020 BTU/hr

7. Check The Gas Input - Propane Gas
Verify the gas input rate by checking that the appropriate orifices have been installed and the manifold pressure has been set as stated in these instructions.
8. Check Burner Flames
Check burner flames through the view port in the
burner box. Flames should be stable, soft and blue,
(dust may cause orange tips but they must not be
yellow). They should extend directly outward from the
burners without curling, floating, or lifting off.
9. Check the normal operating sequence of the ignition
system to insure burners light properly.
10. Check Temperature Rise
NOTE: The relationship between external static pressure and temperature rise will be different than is
shown in the Installation Instructions, while the relationship between CFM and temperature rise will be
about the same. Temperature rise must still be within
the limits on the nameplate.
Check the temperature rise through the unit by placing
thermometers in supply and return air registers as
close to the furnace as possible. Thermometers must
not be able to “see” the furnace’s heat exchangers, or
false readings could be obtained.
• All registers must be open, all duct dampers must
be in their final (fully or partially open) position, and
the unit operated for 15 minutes before taking readings.
• The temperature rise for each heating speed must
be within the range specified on the rating plate or
Specification Sheet.
NOTE: Air temperature rise is the temperature difference between supply and return air.
With a properly designed system, the proper amount of
temperature rise will normally be obtained when the
unit is operated at rated input with the “as shipped”
blower speed.
If the correct amount of temperature rise is not obtained, it may be necessary to change the blower
speed. A faster blower speed will reduce the temperature rise. A slower blower speed will increase the
temperature rise.
If it is necessary to adjust the blower speed, consult the
furnace installation manual for details.
11. For propane gas conversions, attach conversion data
plate, with correct input rating, adjacent to the unit
rating plate and post “conversion date certificate” adjacent to the furnace.
VI. Complete The Installation
See the furnace installation manual for all installation details
which were not covered in this booklet.
