Mounting TV Above Fireplace in Minneapolis, MN
So, you are thinking about installing your flat screen TV over your fireplace. That can be a good thing, as long as it is done properly. While a lot of people believe that this is not a good idea, and some may even consider this a dangerous thing to do due to the fact that your TV will be placed above a heat source, this is actually a task that can be done properly with the help of professionals who know what needs to be done to avoid any damage to your TV.
Many people consider installing their flat screen televisions above their fireplaces for the plain fact that there is no other place on the wall for the TV. Others believe that this is a good place to put the TV because it is the most optimal spot for it, based on the placement of the other furnishings in the room. Whatever the reason may be, mounting your TV above your fireplace does come with a few risks, which is why you should only trust professionals with this job.
While there are guides for you to use, should you decide to install your TV above your fireplace yourself, the possibility of making mistakes and costing yourself a good TV is rather high this way. When you trust in professionals, like the team we have here at Sevens Home Theater, you can be sure that you will have an above fireplace installed television that is properly and safely mounted for your needs. Aside from having a TV that is safely mounted, you will also have one that is optimally mounted for your viewing pleasure.
When our team is called upon to install an above fireplace TV, the first thing that is done is a proper assessment of the area where the TV is to be installed. We make sure that your TV will be safe above your fireplace and if we feel that it is not, our team might suggest a better mounting point for your television. Once the mounting spot is checked for structural integrity and safety, we will then let you know when installation can begin.
After the assessment phase, our team will then install the bracket that you provide for your TV. If this bracket is not ideal for your needs, our team can provide one for you, based on the kind of wall your TV is to be installed on. After mounting, the next step would be the connecting of up to 4 video components to your above fireplace mounted television. The wires that connect your components to your TV can be hidden in the wall above your fireplace, depending on what is found in the wall, or these can be hidden with the use of paintable molding. Just let us know if you want this option and we can provide up to 5 feet of this molding for your needs.
Once installation is done, we test your TV to see if it is functioning properly. We will also test the other components connected to your television to ensure that everything is connected the way they should be. Since your satisfaction is our guarantee, we also have you test your setup before we are certain that the installation process is a success.
And it does not end there. Our team also takes pride in keeping workplaces clean, which is why we take away any debris and garbage produced after an installation job. We also ensure that the area is as clean as it was before any work was started.
