When you have kids and pets, it is important to make the area around your fireplace as safe as possible. One of the best safety measures you can take is installing glass fireplace doors. Glass fireplace doors are also an economical way to update the look of your fireplace. Aelite Chimney Specialties offers a wide variety of glass fireplace doors in all sorts of styles. We can even create custom doors to perfectly fit your fireplace. You can trust us to install these doors as safely as possible, and we can also install other safety components such as screen gates. We would like to tell you more about the benefits of glass fireplace doors.
Keep hot sparks and embers in the fireplace
Glass fireplace doors will completely seal the fireplace opening from your home, and this means you will not have to worry about hot sparks and embers jumping out of the fireplace to land on your floor, curtains, or furniture. You will be reducing your risk of an accidental fire caused by hot sparks and embers.
Improve energy efficiency
According to Step By Step, glass fireplace doors will help to keep your home warmer because they keep air from escaping out of the chimney during the cold winter months. Your home will also stay cooler in the summer as these glass doors will keep hot air from coming through the fireplace through your chimney.
Reduce smoke in your home
Downdrafts can be inevitable at times due to a sudden rush of air down the chimney. If you have a fire burning during a downdraft, smoke will be pushed into your home. With glass fireplace doors, you can enjoy your fires without having to worry about any downdrafts making your home smoky.
Childproof your fireplace
As we mentioned earlier, glass fireplace doors can keep your kids and pets away from a blazing fire. However, these glass doors can get very hot, so you need to teach your children to not touch the doors. Aelite Chimney Specialties can help you with this issue by also installing screen gates that will keep your kids from getting to the glass fireplace doors.
