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.
