Is it safe to mount a TV above the fireplace?

Are you thinking of mounting your TV above a fireplace, because mounting TV above your fireplace seems like the best option for your space? But is it right to mount a TV over a fireplace, either from the standpoint of viewing comfort or safety? In particular, will a TV or any other video monitor become damaged from the heat of the fireplace? Here are some factors to consider before mounting a TV above your fireplace.

What Kind of Fireplace Do You Have?

Different homes have different types of fireplace. But all kind of fireplaces like Gas, Electric and Wood fireplaces produce heat, while electric and gas fireplace don’t create ash or smoke, the heat from these types of fireplaces can damage a TV.

Is the heat from the fire going to damage your TV?

However, to ensure your television will not get damaged from the heat, care must be taken to ensure that heat generated by the fireplace is redirected away from the TV.

There are several ways to do this, such as installing a proper Fireplace TV mount and building an alcove for the television. Also, it’s vital to ensure minimum clearances are met.

Fireplace TV mount helps to deflect heat away from the wall. Moving the TV up slightly, apart from the fire, also places it in a better position from a temperature perspective.

Are you going to get neck-strain looking high at the TV? 

One of the biggest concerns we hear is that a TV positioned over a fireplace is at an uncomfortable viewing angle. Mounting TV above the fireplace is a balance between saving height of the television and space. Still, it can have a few unplanned side effects, including uncomfortable viewing conditions, and unusual audio nuances. Some solutions help bring the TV closer to eye level when you need to place your TV above natural viewing height – like fireplace TV Mounts.

Neck strain can be avoided by hanging the television as low as possible or using a lowering down TV mount so that viewers do not have to crane their necks to watch.

Naturally, this is difficult for an over-the-fireplace mount. However, installing a tranquil mount will create a much more natural eye-level viewing, creating a much friendlier angle.

This also ensures that the picture quality remains as high as possible with good quality sound.

So now you know that you do have some options to mitigate this problem. The first is to buy a fireplace tilting TV mounts & lowering TV mounts with enough down angle to give you a more direct view of the screen.

TV Above Fireplace UK, How to Guide.

Mounting TV above fireplace

Mounting a TV above a fireplace mantel, different homes have a different architectural layout from another, going for a customary installation of a wall mounted flat screen TV is hard to accommodate. Sometimes the only location for the TV wall mount available is one above the fireplace mantel. In such a case, it is important to get it correct otherwise it may result in the TV getting damaged, either during the installation process or by the warmth of the mount location.

All Gas, Electric and Wood fireplaces produce heat, and although Electric and Gas don’t produce ash or smoke, the heat from these types of fireplaces can damage a TV if certain precautions are not followed.

The article attempts to look at the available options and planning to consider. It is always recommended using a professional installer they would have carried out many installs.

Preparation – Before Mounting a TV above a fireplace

Take a good look at the surroundings before mounting a TV above a fireplace mantel, common planning thoughts include the following:

Mark alignment of the television over the fireplace, if you considering placing it in the centre. This can be done with a second person to hold the television, a pencil marker, a tape measure, and a level.

Determine type of wall needed. Plaster board is relatively easy to screw into but you need to locate the studs, but brick, concrete, and stone are harder. Harder walls will need to be pre-drilled, and the holes fitted with wall plugs, before mounts can be attached.

Make sure the wall can take the weight of the TV and mount together. It is essential that you know what you are doing as you could damage the walls.

Ensure screws or bolts do not interfere with wiring or pipes in the wall. Use a pipe and wire detector,  some stud finder have added function to locate pipes and wiring, as well as wall studs.

Ask an electrician engineer to Install power behind the TV and AV cable outlets to get the best finish and hide all the wiring of the television.

Carefully exploring all of these points makes the TV mounting much faster, easier, and safer.

Fireplace Reduce Heat Exposure

Protect your TV from getting too hot, most AV/TV devices operate at temperatures as low as 32 degrees Fahrenheit, it is critical to make sure that the TV is not forced to endorse constant maximum temperatures, which is around 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit. We recommend to keep the fireplace off when using TV over fireplace mount such as Tranquil Mount unique TV mount.

Ideally, devices should be kept at ambient room temperature as much as possible. The following points help owners position their TV in the safest manner:

Fireplace mantel above the fireplace helps to deflect heat away from the wall but this does not always work for some mount that can pulled and pushed back onto the wall; the resulting wall temperature is often quite low but the heat raises upwards. Using a thermometer will allow you to gage what temperature you are dealing with in the planned television position and then recording each of the readings while the fire burns.

Wires into the chimney will not work if  using gas and wooden fire.

Consider how often the television and fireplace used together.

Moving the television up slightly, away from the fire, also places it in a better position from a temperature perspective.

Fireplace Ash Exposure

Using an electric fireplace, there is no need to worry about fireplace ash. Concern is with an open coal or wood fireplace, ash and smoke can prove difficult and tricky under the wrong circumstances. To avoid excessive ash and smoke exposure, see approach below:

Maintaining fireplace regularly. Chimney should be cleaned on a regular basis, possibly every season, fireplaces should be cleared of ash and unburned fuel at least once a week to remove any build-up of debris.

Wood produces less smoke when burned dry, so freshly cut wood logs should be left to dry for a few months in a dry area before being burned. Hardwoods such as oak, beech, birch, and cherry burn at a much higher temperature than softwoods like pine, cypress, and cedar; therefore, give out less smoke as they combust.

Positioning Concerns

Installing the TV above the fireplace is a trade-off between saving space and the height of the television, but it can have a few unintended side effects, including uncomfortable viewing conditions for its owners, and unusual audio nuances. Thankfully, most of these issues can be remedied quite easily by using our TV Mount.

Avoiding Neck Strain

Neck strain can be avoided by hanging the television as low as possible or using pull down TV mount such as Tranquil Mount, so that viewers do not have to crane their necks to watch. Naturally, this is difficult for an over-the-fireplace mount. However, installing a Tranquil Mount will create a much more natural eye level viewing, creating a much friendlier angle. This also ensures that the picture quality remains as high as possible with good quality sound.

Optimizing Sound

Sound generated by LED/LCD TV speakers in most flat-screen televisions is low, higher television installations above the fireplace requires alteration in the way that the speakers are placed. This change is important, and is unique to every situation, depending upon the dimensions and final location of the TV. Ideally a sound bar will bring good quality sound out of your setup and using a sound bar mounting kit would solve your sound issues, the advantage is its cheap and does not require much wiring as you do with surround sound.

Fireplace options for Mounting tv above fireplace

Pull-down TV mount, which can enable the television to move down to a more accessible viewing level

Television inside an unused fireplace, instead of over it.

Choosing Your Wall Mount for Mounting TV above fireplace

Type of mount chosen depends on the intended placement location of the TV, as well as whether or not the set needs to swivel, tilt, or move out from the wall.

Flat, shallow mounts which sit close to the wall; do not tilt or swivel; the simplest kind of mount available

Situations in which the television and the viewing area are roughly on the same plane

Cantilever TV Mount

Flexible mounts with a functional arm attachment. Mounting in a higher location with the choice to move the television out or down to a more practical level in line with eye level.

Tilting TV Mount

Given the choice to tilt the attached TV up or down.

Ideal for televisions which are mounted higher up on a flat wall in line with the viewer, but which need to tilt to provide the best viewing angle.

Full – Motion TV Mount

Tilt up and down, right and left, and also rotate for a superior amount of angle control; allow the TV to be pulled away from the wall slightly.

Ideal for full control in almost any situation or when maximum flexibility is needed

Using the information from the preceding table, buying the right type of mount for the project can be much easier and quicker than would otherwise be the case.
