Why are my gas logs sooting up the house?


Answer by  Latin4 (11170)

The are probably to close to the fireplace door. Your vent is shut or something in the chimney is clogged.

If you are finding soot and/or yellow flames coming from your gas logs the chimney's and ventilation need immediate cleaning. You can also purchase sprays to limit 'flame' soot.

Your gas logs shouldn't, as they burn very clean. You need to check your flue and draw, particularly as you may have a monoxide issue.

Gas logs are well known for causing soot. If you do not use the fireplace very often, you are more likely to have a soot problem. It may help if you adjust the vents or damper in your fireplace or you could try the vented gas logs. If none of this helps, try getting the chimney cleaned.

Gas logs will emit soot and smoke if they have ever been exposed to water. Even an overly humid house can affect gas logs

It could be that your damper is not wide open or maybe your logs are not set far back in your fireplace.
