Will a gas fireplace damage my tv?

It's well known that high temperatures and sensitive electronics are not a good mix. Consequently, a gas fireplace could damage a TV mounted above it if precautions are not taken. There are several ways to protect your big screen from the fireplace. Some of them are:

· Specific mounting systems are designed to protect the TV while providing a comfortable viewing height.

· During installation, framing techniques can do the same.

· Something as simple as a mantle can help deflect the heat away from the TV.

Some fireplaces fare better than others with a TV installed above them. The fireplace heat output and venting configuration can play a big part in determining how best to protect the TV.

Now would be the time to bring your plans or ideas and discuss them with your closest WE LOVE FIRE® expert. We'll be glad to help. It takes some planning before installing the fireplace and TV to ensure correct techniques are applied, all clearances are met, and proper materials are used. And soon, you'll be able to enjoy those movie nights with the kids even more!
