Gas Conversion of Pro Gas Tankless Water Heaters

Some of the Bosch Professional gas tankless water heaters can be converted from one gas type to the next, i.e. from Natural Gas (NG) - Liquid Propane (LPG) and also from LPG - NG.  The Gas Conversion Kit, part #8719002176 includes a jumper for placement on the control board, a set of instructions for calibrating the gas and air mix and also some stickers to be placed on the heater stating it has been converted. 

The tools required for the gas conversion are:
  • Flat and Phillips Screwdrivers
  • #40 torx driver
  • Digital CO2 Gas Combustion Analyzer
  • This procedure must be performed by a licensed gas technician
The Bosch Professional Non-condensing heaters such as the 940ES/940ESO/830ES/715ES/635ES and the Evolution 500 CAN be converted using the gas conversion kit.

All of the Bosch Therm condensing heaters such as the C1210ESC/C1210ES/C1050ES/C950ES/C800ES and Integra 500 CANNOT be converted as the units have a special plate built into the burner tray.  This extra plate in the burner tray was designed and instlled to give the heater the ability to be installed at higher elevations up to 8000'.

Also the Bosch Therm 660EF/660EFO/520PN/520HN/425HN/425EF/330PN CANNOT be converted as they are not designed at all for gas conversion.
