- Harding The Fireplace, Safety, Tips, Trends
Many people want to mount a TV over the fireplace in their family or living room, but there’s been debate whether this is a good idea or not. When it comes to mounting a TV over the fireplace, the main worry is that the television’s sensitive electrical components could be degraded by the constant heat of a fireplace, causing the television to malfunction or break down.
To decide if mounting a TV over the fireplace is a good idea, you need to determine how hot it’s going to be where you want to install the television. An electric fireplace doesn’t require any venting and there’s little concern a television would be affected by the warm air produced. On the other hand, other types of fireplaces could heat up the mantle or fireplace surround—potentially causing damage to your television. Before installing a television over a current fireplace, make sure to check the temperature of the surround after running the fireplace to see if there’s a drastic increase in temperature.
When installing a new fireplace, make sure to speak to the installation company about your desire to mount a TV over the fireplace.
