I have a gas fireplace that I would like to close the gas and take out the rocks and do wood burning. My vent opening is approximately 6 inches, and I have an opening on the right side. Can I do it and what needs to be done?

Our Answer:

Being that a wood burning fire generates a much greater amount of heat than a gas fireplace, I would not recommend using a gas fireplace to burn wood. The firebox and flue pipe itself is not rated to handle the heat produced by a wood fire. You may need to remove the gas fireplace, and re install a true wood burning firebox.
