You need to have it inspected first by a licensed contractor or chimney sweep. In many cases the gas assembly was added to a wood burning fireplace, and if so, it's fine to… go back to wood but the gas logs and piping must be removed first, and the chimney inspected to make sure it's clean and clear to allow the smoke to draft out or you could be in risk of fire or asphyxiation.
Normal Fire Place because you don't have to waste money to burn it! Would you like to pay 50.00 for gas or pay 0.00 for gas! . Irvs12 ** That is partially true. You can u…se a fireplace with a gas supply to burn natural gas under log looking fireplace decoration. That is expensive.

This question really can't be answered in a cut and dry fashion, because it truly depends on the specific fireplace, and chimny/stove pipe setup you're dealing with. It is pos…sible that a gas fireplace could be, or could have been built that would allow for safe wood burning, but without knowing the specifics, to be on the safe side, I'd say No. Put simply, I wouldn't recomend it, as it may very well result in a house fire. Someone elses answer: A true gas fireplace does not accept wood. It generally has a closed front and artificial logs or bricks to spread the heat. Some wood-burning fireplaces have a gas assist. Propane or natural gas is used to get the fire started and help smoke exhaust up the chimney. This is highly useful for those who don't have easy access to kindling wood, or for whom are art of building a fire in a fireplace is daunting, or for firewood that is damp. This is the only type of gas fireplace you can put wood into.

The question is quite broad. As a home owner; you can clean the glass, the exterior and ensure no dust is around the the air inlets. A vacuum works quite well. Do not play wi…th or remove the gas burner or valve. Vacuum the burners inlet and outlet.
