    I have a gas log fireplace, and I was wondering about something. Can I turn this kind of fireplace into a wood burning fireplace? Is it as simple as having the gas logs removed and using wood to burn? I want to keep the gas starter, but from there, I'm totally clueless. Can't you tell? Any comments or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :cheese:

    If its a true wood burning fireplace with a intact flue, yes you can burn wood in it. It wont make it any more efficient. If your gas logs have a standing piliot, then no, you cant use them as a log lighter. You will have to buy a gas log lighter to install. Both things are ileagle in the state of colorado. ie converting gas to wood, and log lighters. Check your local codes.
