    What is your opinion of a brand called MONESSEN? Have you heard anything about vented logs causing soot inside the home?


    Any vented logs will cause soot in the home if the chimney is not updrafting...or not updrafting enough....just like a wood fire would do the same thing. It is important for the homeowner to make certain that a draft is established. A good way is to run the logs with the damper fully open- and hold a candle or a match up close to the top of the fireplace opening (on the outside)...If it is sucked in toward the fireplace- a good draft exists. Then- you could experiment by closing the damper part of the way..If it's still sucked in..then it's probably OK.
