Consider your budget before getting a fireplace vent cover. These covers vary in price depending on style, size, material and finish. Next, choose the right size for your fireplace.
Measure your fireplace to get the exact dimensions, and compare it with the size of the fireplace vent cover you want to buy. Choose the material and style that meets your needs. Ensure the fireplace vent cover complements your house decor. Some of the common materials are copper, wrought iron, bronze and brass. In addition, choose a fireplace vent cover that keeps children and pets away from the flames. The cover prevents sparks and embers from getting to your floor or carpet.
