glass doors open....or closed.....what's best?
We have a normal wood burning fireplace. Doesn't get used too much here...only about two months of the year.
But every time it's used the "discussion" starts again....
I get a good fire going and leave the glass doors open.
The father-in-law stops by and proceeds to go on about how much more heat would be 'radiated' into the room if we kept the glass doors shut.
Tired of the yearly banter...I thought I'd ask here.
Does anyone have an opinion about whether you get more heat into the room with the doors open or closed?
