In addition to being a very attractive addition to home furnishings, the glass door firescreen has many useful and functional features.
Starting a fire can be made much easier by closing curtains and doors and opening the bottom draft. When the fire dies down, it can be rekindled in the same manner.
Closing the curtains and doors as well as the dampers drastically reduces the amount of heat that is normally lost up the chimney - heat which is often generated by an oil, gas or electric furnace.
Radiant heat is greatly increased with the curtains closed and the doors open. Operating the screen with the doors and curtains closed, heat is conducted through the doors and the metal front of the screen.
For fireplaces without flue dampers, a glass door firescreen is a must. Closing the curtains and the doors when retiring will allow the fire to die down safely.
Since the fireplace damper must be open with gas logs installed, a glass door allows you to close the doors (with the logs turned off) to keep heated room air from going up the chimney.
