Flat panel TV installation over fireplace is best looking TV installation.

Fireplace is usually the centerpiece of the room. Space above the fireplace is good for art, mirror, or your new flat panel TV. Many people are concerned about installing TV over their fireplace. Is it safe? Will fireplace heat damage my TV? It is perfectly safe to mount LCD TV over fireplace, Plasma TV over fireplace, LED TV over fireplace. Wall above fireplace is just like any other wall in the house and in some cases even stronger. In terms of heat, if you can hold your hand against fireplace and it doesn’t burn you then it’s not going to heat up your TV. Also, TV is not going to touch fireplace wall directly. TV wall mount will be between TV and the wall leaving some room for ventilation. And last, any LCD TV, Plasma TV, LED TV generate heat when in use and there are fans built into TVs to cool them down.

Two major things to consider before TV installation over fireplace. First is TV viewing height. When TV installed over fireplace, it’s way higher than normal TV installation height. Second is wire concealment. In most cases we can run wires through walls into basement or attic. In some cases we have to cut the wall to run wires through.
