Did you know that each year, thousands of homeowners suffer from property damage and thousands of people are killed or injured in house fires that could have been prevented with fireplace glass doors, and without fireplace glass doors hundreds of energy dollars are lost up the chimney. In the winter you pay to heat your chimney and in the summer you pay to cool it.
I am Melissa from NorthlineExpress and in this I will talk about the benefits of glass fireplace doors. There are two main benefits to glass fireplace doors; they can protect your family and home as well as increase energy efficiency.
Let’s talk first about how fireplace doors can protect your family and home. When most people think about the dangers of a fireplace they often think about the worst case scenario which would be a raging house fire due to poor chimney maintenance, creosote build-up, or a poor chimney draft. Chimney fires are a very real danger and treat but too often the less obvious threats like sparks or logs tumbling out of the fireplace are ignored. Without fireplace glass doors, sparks and cinders are free to float and pop from the fireplace and land on clothing, furniture or other home furnishings which can cause considerable damage to property that surrounds the fireplace. Logs tumbling out of the fireplace can damage wood flooring, destroy carpeting, melt linoleum or even worse roll right into someone standing or sitting next to the fireplace. Fireplace glass doors have been proven to decrease the potential for injury to those you care about and also reduce the risk of damage to your home, by acting as a barrier keeping your fire inside the fireplace.
Now let’s talk about how fireplace doors can increase energy efficiency. An open fireplace is just like an open window. When left open in the winter, the fireplace will allow warm air to escape up and out the chimney and in the summer cool air conditioned air is able to escape from the chimney. In both cases, fireplace glass doors increase efficiency, by acting as a barrier between your home and your chimney, and minimizing the amount of air lost up the chimney which saves you money!
And of course there are other benefits to fireplace doors like adding style, reducing hearth clean up, and increasing the heat output of your fireplace. Fireplace doors can decrease or eliminate the need for sweeping up fallen debris, bark, and cinders as well as those nasty ash smudges left behind by floating ash, by containing those particles in the fireplace. When closed during a burning fire, Fireplace glass doors can more than triple the net heat released in your home because the glass panels radiate the heat out.
