Why are fireplace doors necessary?
- They keep your loved ones safe!
- It goes without saying that the flames from a roaring fire are intriguing to look at, and on particularly cold days, you can't help but cozy on up to the hearth. This sounds wonderful and alluring, but stop and think for one moment about the curious little creatures and small, often precarious children in your home. The inviting warmth and ambiance of the flames in an open fireplace can be a little too enticing for them, and the last thing you want is an injury.
- For an added safety measure: keep little hands away from the hot glass by placing a decorative fireplace screen in front of the doors. There are several protective folding varieties available that will add even more beauty and character to your already attractive hearth!
- They are more reliable than mesh screens!
- While hanging mesh fireplace screens do provide a small measure of safety, they are not as secure as a fireplace door. Glass barriers significantly reduce the risk of damage by keeping sparks and embers within the fireplace, and children and pets out! Without them, the likelihood of hot cinders flying around and damaging carpet and furnishing, or logs rolling out and causing harm is a lot higher. Adding a door to your fireplace is a secure and inexpensive way to keep dangerous hazards contained, and your home and loved ones safe!
- They keep dangerous downdrafts from entering your living space!
- Installing glass doors for your fireplace has been proven to reduce downdrafts from the chimney. This incident of aggressive air paths from winter storms pulls dangerous smoke into your home and can cause a multitude of problems. In the event of a downdraft, it is also possible that embers will escape the hearth and cause damage, or even worse, a fire. Closing your glass doors eliminates the hazards that accompany downdrafts.
- Fireplace doors are actually more efficient than chimney dampers!
- Dampers are metal plates that regulate airflow in your chimney. Newly installed units fit like a glove, but after a year or two, they tend to warp and allow extra air to pass into the chimney. Instead of relying solely on the damper, you could simply adding fireplace doors and greatly reduce the cost of your home’s heating and cooling bills. Prevent warm air from escaping your home during the winter, and keep cool air inside during the summer much longer than
- Closing your glass doors will act as a barrier that encases the heat source!
- This results in more heat being generated from the fire wood. Heat is absorbed and radiated through the glass, and the output is more substantial than that of an open fireplace. This means you'll need less wood to generate warmth!
