Adding glass doors can significantly improve many aspects of your traditional fireplace.If you’re thinking about installing an enclosure like this, consider the advantagesbelow.
A set of glass doors can prevent injury by enclosing the open flames. This can be especially important if you have young children or pets. The doors can still get hot however, so using a screen is also a prudent idea. The doors will also keep sparks, embers and even shifting logs from escaping the firebox and possibly igniting flammable materials.
Traditional fireplaces allow heat to escape through the damper whether a fire is blazing or you have no fire at all. Being able to close the doors will radiate more heat into the room and prevent valuable energy from being lost due to drafts. Some experts state that as little as 10% of the energy from burning firewood can end up heating your home. Glass doors can possibly double or triple that amount, plus you’ll save money by not losing the heat from your furnace as well.
Doors can give a polished look to your fireplace and help hide the ashes and burned logs you haven’t had a chance to clean up yet. They will also keep smoke and soot from leaving unsightly stains and deposits on your hearth or mantle.
A professional fireplace supplier can help you choose the right glass doors to fit your décor and budget.
