I have a masonary fireplace, never used, and no doors. I want to
install doors, but am VERY interested in getting some energy
efficiency in the process. I like the Heatilator type fireplace
insert/door systems... BUT,they all have a rustic/country look. I
have a very contemporary room, polished beige granite panels surround
the firebox, etc. I could go with a brass or nickel finshed door,
with NO cast iron showing (significant other threatens my demise!)
Are there ANY doors / inserts that are contemporary in design, but
allow some energy recovery? I know about two companies that make
hearth warmers with the little fans that go below the doors, but they
aren't what I am looking for. I will go completely custom, if needed,
but I don't even know where to have it made.
I know its a steep request, but any ideas out there folks?
