Stage Regulator

How can I test a furnace without a big propane tank?

I am trying to buy a house. Before we close, I have to have the furnace tested. I do not want to have the propane company come out with a big tank and charge me a big amount. How can I have a heating expert test the furnace without a huge propane tank? Can I just hook up a little one?

Assuming that this is a propane furnace, not a natural gas one, they could use a full 20lb cylinder to testfire the appliance. As long as we aren't talking about a 200,000 btu boiler or something! If it is a 70,000 btu furnace or something it will work fine. You shouldn't try and run it for hours because a 20Lb cylinder is not capable of producing high btu's for extended periods of time.

Make sure it has a proper twin-stage regulator on it, not a barbecue regulator! Those are not precise enough and they are not legal to connect to an indoor appliance for safety reasons.

Also, this will work in spring/summer/ fall in moderate temperatures, but if it was the dead of winter you would need a much larger container to feed a furnace, even for a test firing.
