Installing a Fireplace and fitting a TV above?

It is now very popular to mount a TV above a fireplace as this creates additional space within a room and makes furniture arrangement easier.Most of the gas fires and bio-ethanol fireplaces we manufacture can be installed with a TV above using our installation guidelines. If you are considering installing a TV above a fireplace call 01325-301020 or visit our fireplace showroom to find out the installation requirements.

The easiest and most energy efficient way to achieve this contemporary installation style is to use our open flame flueless gas fire and recess system (as shown above in the image with Beyonce). This design requires no chimney and has maximum energy efficiency. By using a gas fire without a chimney installation costs are greatly reduced meaning the majority of the installation costs can be assigned to the fireplace and TV rather than "unseen" works hidden in the wall. This type of fireplace installation means that there is no need for a hearth or surround and a TV on a stand or unit, all of which can take up considerable amount of space within a room, overall the room will appear larger and the available living space will appear more contemporary and makes furniture planning easier. This can be achieved with a wide range of installation styles. We have solutions available for homes with and without a chimney using flueless gas fires, high efficiency chimney fires, open flame gas fires, balanced flue gas fires and also power flue gas fires and stoves. We are unable to show every combination here and therefore we ask that you call us to discuss your plans and we can e-mail guidance sheets to you.

Installing a TV above a fireplace can be achieved easily as long as strict guidelines are followed. There have been a number of instances where customers have adopted a DIY attitude and very expensive damage has occurred to the TV. To get accurate advice of what you need to do to install a TV above a fireplace speak to our sales consultants with details of both the fireplace and TV you are planning to install. We can then guide you towards the best solution. Also, with careful planning it is also possible to hide the DVD, surround sound system and cables within the cavity created for the TV and fireplace. Shown below are a selection of installation images from customer homes.
