    Default Converting Gas Logs to Natural Wood Gas Ignitor

    My home has a wood fireplace that was converted to gas logs before I purchased the house. I want to take out the gas logs and install a gas ignitor so that Ican burn wood in the fireplace again. I'm concerned about conversion because the gas logs were conected to a copper line and I'm not certian if that type of gas line would be safe for a natural wood fire and ignitor. Is this OK to convert the Gas Logs to a Gas Ignitor with the copper gas line?

    As a wood fire can reach temperatures of 1100 C and the melting point of copper is 1043 C I would say no.

    I would say go with the manufacturers recommendations.
