Installing Your Television Above the Fireplace

fireplace tv installation

Mounting your television above your fireplace can help your television blend into your decor seamlessly. It can also improve the way you view your television. However, there are certain tips you should know! The TV installation experts at We Mount TVs have got you covered.

Televisions these days, like the HD Sony X810C, are thinner and lighter than ever. For this reason, they are perfect for mounting on walls. Mounting a flat screen television over a mantle allows for an entertaining, multi-functional centerpiece. Mounting the television instead of placing it on an entertainment system also allows for more space in the room.

Take Precaution When Hanging Your TV

Hanging your television above your fireplace can become a fire hazard if you don’t take the proper precautions. Make sure that you check the recommended temperatures noted on your unit’s list of technical specifications.

Make sure that your television is high enough. Height and distance specifications will be unique depending on your television size. So, make sure to do your research. And if you have to hang your television higher than is idea, consider a swivel mount to keep from ruining your viewing experience.

Another option is raceway wiring, meaning our experts can hide all of the cord components using a raceway in a closet or another room, leaving just the television to show above the fireplace. If all you’ve got is a satellite box, that can go behind the TV.

TV Installation Tips

There are multiple ways to mount your television and many different types of mounts. Depending on the weight and size of your television, you will need a specific mounting system to securely hang your TV. You could always invest in a stand; however, mounting your television is typically a safer option.

To help hide your cords and cables, try using a bridge system behind the wall. The less clutter, the easier it is to integrate your TV into your new space. Many homes come pre-wired with AV cables installed directly above the fireplace. You may also consider wire molding. Need help? We Mount TVs has got you covered.
