Will the heat from my brick wall fireplace affect my HD TV? Will the heat from my brick wall fireplace affect my HD TV?
The heat from a brick wall fireplace will affect an HD TV only if you place your TV within a foot of the front or sides of the fireplace. If you have concerns, then your best best is to follow the mounting instructions for your new HD TV to the letter, allowing enough space for proper air movement around the TV set. In the unlikely event that you think the TV and the fireplace are still too close, move the TV until you can no longer feel any heat around it.
