I have what appears to be a manufactured fireplace with a metal flue (rather than masonry). It currently burns gas, and I assumed that's all I could burn, but I noticed on its product placard that it was suitable for solid wood fuel or gas.
Is it safe to have the gas pieces removed and burn wood in here? Are there any potential concerns with the flue/chimney?
The fireplace itself appears to be ceramic sheets embossed with a texture similar to brick. The gas/hvac guy I use said it would be safe, but I wanted a second opinion.
I have attached a photo of the placard inside the fireplace.
