Will this insert smoke and soot my walls?

Our Answer:

This chances of this happening are very low. If a direct vent fireplace insert is used, this could not occur, as the unit will be completely sealed with a pane of glass. All combustion air comes from the outdoors and exhaust gases are vented to the outdoors as well. Vent free inserts are the only type that can cause a slight discoloration of the walls in a room. This will only occur if the item is used in a dusty room over an extended period of time. Yearly service of these inserts is also required to ensure that they will continue to burn cleanly.
