How to choose the right fireplace doors

You’re ready for the cold weather and your fireplace is ready to start working hard to heat your home and provide cozy, warm ambiance for your family. You’ve got the wood or gas logs to burn...but what about fireplace glass doors? Fireplace glass doors can make all the difference in keeping the warm air in your home and the cold air out.

Closing the fireplace glass doors when the fire has burned down keeps icy cold air from coming down the chimney into your room. If you close the chimney flue after a fire, some cold air can still get through. Adding an extra barrier will help ensure your home stays warm and your heating bills stay low.

First, you’ll need to determine if your fireplace has a pre-fab/zero clearance firebox made of metal or a masonry fireplace with firebox made of concrete or brick. Since fireplace glass doors are made differently for each of these type fireplaces, it’s important that you’re sure what kind you have.
