Can a TV and fireplace be next to each other?

I want to put my TV on top of my fireplace, but I'm not sure if that's dangerous for TV's. I will be burning my fireplace when it gets cold.

You can put a TV on top of a fireplace but it's not recommended. The hot air from burning the fire could harm your television. A stone or marble ledge will absorb heat. Also, make sure the mantle is thick and the TV doesn't hang over the edge.

Placing your tv else where may be a safer choice. While having the tv on top of the fireplace could work, it is more dangerous than safe. Televisions should be away from fireplaces and heaters because heat can be damaging to your television. You could put your television in a more suitable place and feel safer by doing so.

Electronic equipment needs to stay well-ventilated and cool. In almost all cases, heat will rise from the fireplace, along with dust particles which can damage electronics. In addition, the chimney will heat as well. This is probably not the best place for your TV.
