What Is the Purpose of Glass Doors on a Fireplace?

At first glance adding doors to a fireplace seems counterproductive, but they offer a lot of benefits that can allow you to maximize the efficiency of your fireplace.

Here are a few ways that glass doors can boost your fireplace:

  • Improved efficiency. We know what you’re thinking – wouldn’t doors just trap the heat in the firebox? Not exactly. Fireplaces – especially wood-burning units – work by drawing warm air out of a room to fuel the fire. Glass doors help contain that heat, allowing more of it to radiate into the room.
  • It’s safer. Flames are dangerous. Glass doors act as a barrier that keeps children, pets, and anything else from getting too close for comfort. Embers and sparks can also fly out of an open fireplace which can cause injuries or ignite nearby furniture. With glass doors in place, you don’t have to worry about stray embers.
  • You have more control. Glass doors let you manage how much air gets into the fireplace. This helps you control how strong the fire is and how much heat it gives off. You can adjust the doors to let in more or less oxygen, which affects how fast the fire burns and how warm it gets.
  • Create a custom look. Everyone has their own tastes and sense of style. The previous owner of your home may have a very different take on interior design, so it’s natural to make cosmetic changes that better fit your preferred aesthetic. Making changes to a fireplace can be tricky and expensive, and adding or changing the fireplace doors is a cost-effective way to update your fireplace.

How Do I Maintain My Fireplace Glass Doors?

We can help you select glass doors for your fireplace and install them for you, but purchase and installation are only parts of the process. You have to properly take care of all components for your fireplace to get the most out of it, and the glass doors are no exception.

We have some tips to help you stay on the right maintenance path:

  • Follow manufacturer guidelines. When you have a question about cleaning or repair services, be sure to reference your manufacturer’s manual. It will have valuable information about your warranty, whether you qualify for a replacement if necessary, and which cleaning products to avoid.
  • Clean the glass doors regularly. Cleaning the doors will prevent soot, ash, and residue buildup, making future cleaning easier. Ideally, you should clean the doors after each use. Always let the fireplace cool down completely before cleaning the glass
  • Don’t forget the tracks and hinges. Take a good look at the tracks and hinges of the doors for any dirt or debris. If you spot anything, use a small brush or vacuum to remove any particles that may be stuck in the tracks, as it can prevent the doors from opening and closing smoothly.
  • Don’t go for abrasive cleaners or scouring pads. Some products can scratch the glass, which makes it more susceptible to dirt buildup in the future. Always opt for microfiber cloths or sponges.
  • Only burn dry, seasoned firewood. Wet or green wood produces more smoke which can stain the glass in the long run. Properly seasoned firewood burns hotter and cleaner, minimizing smoke and soot.
