Hello I have got a Pansonic led tv above a gas fire and I was wondering if it is safe to have the fire on?
If you are concerned about the TV getting too hot when the fire is on, you could try renting a thermal imaging gun. You would take some readings with the set on and no fire. Then take a series of readings over time with the set and fire on. You could then compare them to the earlier readings to see if there is an appreciable increase.
Personally, I doubt there would be a problem considering that the fireplace surround looks like wood wainscoting or panel board. I think placing a TV over a fireplace is not a very ideal location but I have seen TVs located above gas fireplaces in other houses that I have been in.
