The only other cause for a gas fired unit to create soot besides inadequate combustion air is burners that aren't properly adjusted. It doesn't matter how many time you open the overhead doors (unless you leave then open). If you can tell me the BTU input of the heater I can tell you the indoor volume of air required for combustion air taken entirely from indoors.
