Why Install Glass Fireplace Doors?

Glass Fireplace Doors

A fireplace becomes the focal point of any room in which it is installed. It provides visual appeal, comfort and warmth. Glass fireplace doors are an accessory that comes with many benefits. 

  • Beauty and style: Whether you’re replacing an existing door or adding one, glass fireplace doors add style, colour and shape to your hearth. They can be simple, elegant, modern and/or chic. There is a style to match every decor. 
  • Safety: Glass fireplace doors reduce the chance of sparks escaping or logs tumbling out causing damage to tile or wood flooring, destroying carpets, melting linoleum, landing on clothing and furniture or making contact with a person. They also help prevent children and pets from getting too close to the fireplace.
  • Increased energy efficiency: A glass fireplace door prevents warm air from being lost up the chimney during the winter and keeps cool air in during the summer. This can reduce your energy consumption and consequently your heating and cooling costs.
  • Increased heat: Glass fireplace doors enclose the burning area so that firewood is able to burn better and produce more heat. The doors then absorb and radiate this heat into the room. Glass fireplace doors triple the net heat realized in your home!
  • Prevent back drafts: Glass fireplace doors prevent backdrafts from coming down the chimney, blocking cold gusts of air and stopping smoke, carbon monoxide and hot embers from coming into your home. 
  • Reduced cleanup: By containing the fire, glass doors eliminate the need to sweep up ash, cinders, wood chips, bark and other debris. They also keep household items near your fireplace protected from dirt and debris.
  • Unobstructed view: Part of the joy of a fire is the chance to watch the flames dance and the smoke swirl. Glass fireplace doors allow for this pleasure.

Whether you use your fireplace frequently or only rarely light up the hearth, there are many benefits to adding glass doors to your fireplace. They will improve the appearance, safety and efficiency of your fireplace while allowing you an unobstructed view of the fire. Glass fireplace doors are a simple and inexpensive way to add a new look to your room!
