Fireplace Installation: Yes or No?
If you’re considering mounting your TV above the fireplace, you’re not alone. Fireplace TV installation is one of the most popular locations for a new television among homeowners. Although some homeowners like the idea of fireplace installation because of the aesthetics, many feel it’s their only logical design option in a room that’s full of doorways and windows.
One of the biggest drawbacks to fireplace TV installation is the height. Placing a fireplace above a fireplace and mantel means your TV will be higher than it might be on a traditional entertainment system. Although it might seem like a minor detail, you may not want to have to crane your neck every time you’re watching a show.
For this reason, fireplace TV installation tends to work best in larger living rooms where you can place your sofa far from the screen and still see it. When your TV can be viewed from anywhere in the room, you won’t end up getting a neck ache while trying to watch The Bachelor.
Angles and Fire Damage
Another common issue with fireplace TV installation is viewing angle. Depending on the type of TV, a compromised viewing angle can negatively affect the image. However, there is an easy fix for this when you work with a professional TV installation team. Mounts are available that angle your TV downward so it can be viewed more easily from a lower vantage point.
If you don’t use your fireplace and it’s simply decorative, fire and soot aren’t a concern. However, if you actively use your fireplace, your TV installation team will need to advise you on how to safely install your TV without causing a fire hazard or a safety risk. We’ll install your TV with plenty of height above your fireplace so you won’t have to worry about damage to your electronics or worse.
