Preparation before Mounting the TV above a Fireplace
Take a look at the situation before mounting a TV above a fireplace mantel; common planning thoughts include the following:
Mark alignment of the TV over the fireplace, if you are thinking about putting it in the centre. It can be done with a second person to hold the TV, a pencil marker, a tape measure, and a level.
Determine the type of wall needed. Plasterboard is comparably easy to screw into, but you need to find the studs, but brick, concrete, and stone are hard. The harder wall will need to be predrilled, and the holes fitted with wall plugs before mounts can be attached.
Confirm that the wall can take the weight of the TV and mount together. You must know what you are doing; otherwise, you could damage the wall.
Make sure screws or bolts do not affect electric wiring or pipes in the wall. Use a wire detector; some stud finder has added function to locate pipes and electrical wire, as well as studs.
Ask an electrician to install power behind the TV & AV cable to get the best finish and hide all the wiring of the TV.
Carefully learning all of these points makes the TV mounting much faster, easier, and safer.
