However, it is not a big problem because you can always buy special cleaners for fireplace screens and glass doors. More often the construction of furnaces have special channels that send air flow along the inner surface of the door, and don't allow the soot particles settle on the glass. If your fireplace has no doors at all, you can use a variety of nets and shutters that can be installed directly in front of the firebox. They help to manage the air flow and thus regulate the heat level.
The modern gas fireplaces is truly a beautiful thing, the ultimate marriage of efficient functionality and elegant beauty. They are not like the old gas fireplaces, with their meek blue flames and their obscured tempered glass door panels that trapped in what little heat there was. These contemporary fireplaces feature real-looking yellow and orange flames curling around real-looking ceramic "logs," which are very visible through newer-style ceramic glass door panels, which also let the heat pass through to the rest of the room or outdoor space. A newer model gas fireplace has more cool accessories than the old gas fireplaces - child safety screens and pull screens, storage cabinets, mantles and display shelves, ornamental ceramic logs, overlay doors and louvers, decorative panels and all-purpose grills. They can be made of anything from cast iron or stainless steel to molded cement, or even bronze, with ceramic, stone or copper garnishes.
