Lp conversion

Im replacing the furnace in my house and would like to use the old one in my garage. it is a lennox pulse 21 (G21Q3-80-1). I can't seem to find an Lp conversion kit for under $300. I can buy a used Lp furnace for that! Any ideas or places on the cheap? Thanks!

Silly Question

Why do you want to convert the funace to LP if you have natural available? I would think it would be much cheaper to extend the natural into the garage than convert to & operate on LP.

frozen condensate traps

One more question. I'm looking to put that condensing furnace in my garage, I don't want to run it all the time so it WILL freeze. I'm wondering if i can run the exhaust the 3 feet out the wall with maybe 1'' or so drop with no trap? thanks again for the help!

What would concern me is the furnace itself freezing. I've seen more than one freeze & split.

I guess the worst I could do is try it, the furnace is junk anyways. Their can't be that much water there with a straight pipe and no trap?? I'll let you know next winter if I have any problems. Thanks
