Answer: In most cases
Explanation: If you have a properly functioning fireplace with a mantle, a professionally mounted TV above it is completely safe. Your TV is designed to SAFELY withstand between 100 and 125 degrees. The easiest way to be sure your TV would be safe is to run your fireplace and feel or place a thermometer on the wall where the TV would be placed. If functioning properly, the fireplace heat will rise through your flue and/or be diverted by your mantle, causing no damage to your TV.
