Can you use wood logs in a gas fireplace?
Simply so, what kind of wood do you use for a gas fireplace?
If the fireplace is built to proper dimensions, the heat source (firewood or gas) should be recessed enough that any type wood could be used. Pine or poplar if you are going to paint it. If not pick a wood that goes with the existing look of the room.
Likewise, how do you remove gas logs from wood? Before you can use the fireplace to burn wood, you need to cap your gas line off completely. Alternatively, you can choose to convert the line into a gas log lighter. The whole process can cost up to $300, provided your flue is in good shape. If you do most of the work yourself, the costs will, of course, be different.
In this regard, can I use my gas fireplace without the logs?
No gas fireplace comes without the logs & burner. Unless someone has installed your fireplace incorrectly or has pilfered the logs, what you have is a wood burning fireplace.
