The Benefits of Glass Doors on Fireplaces


Your fireplace is the focal point of any room, both beautiful and functional. Whether gas or the more traditional wood, it adds value to your home and can be customized based on your preferences and lifestyle. Adding glass doors to your fireplace will not only heighten the allure and ambience of the area, but provide several other benefits as well:

Safety:

An open fire is a hazard for pets and children as they are attracted to the glow and are curious and exploring creatures. Even oblivious adults can hurt themselves if sitting too close or not being careful around the flame. Doors that separate the fire from the rest of the room give you peace of mind, and protect the innocent and unaware. Glass doors will keep any sparks or flying embers from hurting your loved ones, or damaging your flooring. Your home furnishings, and therefore your home, will be protected.

Lower Costs:

Installing glass doors in your home aren’t only safe, though that alone is reason enough, they are also very cost efficient. The warm air that is in your house, as a result of your fire, actually stays in your house! Glass doors seal off air from escaping up the chimney, so your house stays at a warmer temperature, and you don’t have to pay extra money for another heat source. Dampers just don’t do the job: actual doors are the only way to keep your fireplace sealed off.

Efficiency:

Not only do glass doors keep your fireplace sealed off, they also transfer heat extremely well. The doors radiate the heat emitted from a fireplace much more evenly around the room. Since they are located so close to the fire itself, they are also able to transfer a larger percentage of heat emitted by the flames, as opposed to what we could feel without getting burned. Because the fire is enclosed, the logs produce a higher temperature flame, which is then released evenly into the room via the glass doors.

Beauty and Style:

Getting glass doors is a simple step towards creating a more relaxed, classier environment. They come in a variety of shapes and styles that you can choose depending on the décor and look you desire. Though we encourage an annual chimney and fireplace inspection and sweep, if you do have an unsightly fireplace, glass doors will conceal it. Ashes and blackened logs don’t have to ruin the ambiance you worked so hard to create.

There are so many reasons to install glass doors. If you have any questions about how to add extra allure to your home, or are curious about other services we provide, don’t hesitate to visit our website or call us.
