Better heating efficiency

The traditional fireplace is lovely to have in the room but it does not provide meaningful amount of heat to your living room. Glass doors are able to triple the heat that enters the house. The heat from the fire is not blocked in the fireplace but it radiates into the room through the glass.

Riding your house of smoke

Wood burning in your fireplace may cause smoke to spread in your house especially from sudden downdrafts from the chimney. The glass door will keep the smoke in the fireplace.

Saving energy

The glass door offers a barrier that prevents heat from your house from escaping. When the fireplace is not in use, you rely on the damper to prevent heat from escaping but it is not as effective as a glass door.
