Heat Concerns for Fireplace Mounted Plasma Screen Televisions

Always take heat levels in to consideration when mounting a plasma screen television. The television itself will produce a great amount of heat, and if it is placed in a high heat environment (anything over 90 degrees Fahrenheit) it can suffer damage. When mounting a plasma screen television above a fireplace, make sure to check the temperature of the surface that it will be mounted on. Do this by attaching a thermometer to the surface and then by building a normal size fire in the fireplace. After a while, check the thermometer to make sure that the recommended temperature for your television hasn't been exceeded. If so, make sure never operate your television while a there is a fire in the fireplace.
