If you have an older wood-burning fireplace, you may be considering upgrading its function and appearance. Aelite Chimney Specialties would like to tell you more about an easy and inexpensive option you have to improve your old fireplace: installing glass fireplace doors. We have years of experience with retrofitting glass fireplace doors, so you will not have to worry if you cannot find doors that fit your firebox. Not only do glass fireplace doors improve the looks of your fireplace and its heating efficiency, but installing these doors can make your fireplace much safer. We would like to tell you more about why you should install glass fireplace doors.
If you have young children or pets in your home, you need to install glass fireplace doors to prevent them from getting too close to the fire and accidentally falling inside the firebox. Of course, the doors will get hot while a fire is burning, so Aelite Chimney Specialties can help you keep your kids from burning their fingers on the door by installing a screen in front of your fireplace. Glass fireplace doors also increase safety by not allowing hot sparks and embers to jump out of the fireplace where they can possibly ignite a house fire. And, according to This Old House, you will not have to wait for the fire to die down completely before you go to bed when you have the glass fireplace doors closed. This can be a big relief for those who enjoy relaxing by the fire at night.
Without glass fireplace doors, both heated air in the winter and cooled air in the summer can easily escape your home through the fireplace. Closing these doors seals off this exit, which can save you money on your utility bills all through the year. Surprisingly, glass fireplace doors also improve the heating ability of your old fireplace. You might think that these doors will restrict the heat from the fire from entering your living space, but the opposite is true. Glass fireplace doors absorb the heat from the fire and radiate the heat into the room. Aelite Chimney Specialties guarantees you that you will see a reduction in your utility bills after installing glass fireplace doors.
