Fireplace Doors Guide

Energy Saving Fireplace Doors

There are three basic ways that a fireplace glass door can save energy dollars as well as make your home safer and more enjoyable.

1. When your fireplace is not in use an insulated "dead air" space between the closed damper and closed fireplace glass doors is created. This helps to keep the conditioned air in your home from escaping out of the chimney, as well as keeping outside air from coming in your home through your chimney and fireplace.

2. After you are done enjoying the fire you can close the fireplace doors while the fire is still burningl and help restrict the heat loss up the chimney while continuing to radiate heat into the room. This also allows you to safely let the fire die out without worrying about a fire hazard.

3. Fireplace glass doors can also provide a sound barrier for homes located in areas with high decibel noise activity. In fact there have been several airports that have soundproofed surrounding homes which included the installation of fireplace glass doors.

These are just a few basic reasons how fireplace doors can be efficient for you and your wallet.
