    Question:

    Why does my gas log fireplace have soot on the logs after use. I have the damper fully opened?



    Answer:

    Standard vented gas logs are designed to burn the gas "dirty"- that's what makes it look real...a blue gas flame is a clean one- a yellow one dirty....A dirty fire creates soot !

    Note: Propane fuel often creates more soot than natural gas.
