How Do Fireplace Doors Improve Efficiency?

Improve fireplace efficiency with replacement doors! Did you know that 80% or more of the heat from a fire exits through the chimney? That's pretty significant (and costly!) when you consider the investment you've made into a heating application to keep you and your loved ones warm. Consider the windows in your home - you wouldn't leave them open during the winter months, would you? Of course not! All of the warm air inside your home would escape and you'd find yourself wrapped up in extra sweaters and blankets. One of the simplest things you can do to improve the efficiency of your heat source is to add or update fireplace glass doors!

  • Select tight-fitting new or replacement doors (with either magnets or cam-locks) that also have adjustable vents to help circulate heat. For extra assurance, a high-temperature silicon gasket provides a reliable seal. 
  • We all know that heated air rises. Even after your fire has gone out, your chimney will continue to allow the warm air inside your hearth and the surrounding living space to float up, up, and away! As a rule of thumb, when heated air if pulled out of your home from the inside, cold air from the outside will take its place. A fireplace door creates a barrier between the living space and the chimney, preventing this unwanted temperature exchange.
  • When fireplace glass doors keep temperate air inside where it belongs, your furnace or central air conditioning unit will have less space to maintain, thus reducing the negative effects that heating and cooling costs can have on your checkbook!

As you can see, new or replacement glass doors are the best and most affordable fireplace efficiency products you can add to your heating source!
