The question is not whether you can, but what will it do? I wouldn't recommend it for a couple of reasons. First, the additional heat will be very bad for the electronics. Second, the backlight inverter boards generate high voltage which will act like a magnet to attract and soot and dut kicked up from the fireplace, eventually causing problems. Unless you plan on having the fireplace for decoration only, don't do it.

How do i get even heat thru out the house with a daka wood stove


http://www.hearth.com/talk/categories/main-hearth-forums.4/
You burn wood, and smoke goes up flueway.
You're not running chimney smoke through ductwork so you have a heat exchanger.
What kind of heat exchanger?
probably air since you're running through ductwork?
How much hot air or hot water is coming off heat exchanger?
How big of a space can be heated with that amount of heat?
Is the exchanger located in optimal location?

Considerations.
One room log cabin with fireplace will not stay very warm.
One room house with big wood burning stove in center, with hot flue pipe running across the room and exiting on far wall, will get warm-hot, but will cool off fast.
Why?
Because the BTU output of firewood is much less than electric, coal, oil, or gas.
Otherwise they would have made wood-burning steam locomotives. But the locomotive boiler cannot get hot enough with wood ... the boiler needs coal to produce enough BTUs to boil water fast enough to rotate the turbine and turn the wheels.

Maybe your wood stove output should be measured.
Don't forget a huge percentage of fire heat goes straight up flueway.

Can you give me some advice on, how to mount a 46in tv above my non working fireplace mantle?


You would have to use a mounting bracket specifically designed for the type of installation you describe and it certainly would have to be fastened into the studs behind the sheetrock. A TV of that size will be heavy to lift and install in the bracket

I have just lit a coal fire for the first time in the living room, all is OK ecept when I went into the bedroom (2 floors above) I could smell smoke quite badly Any advice?


The chimney needs to be 3 feet taller than the highest point of the house . If you are running the clothes dryer, bathroom vent fan, or exaust hood in kitchen it makes a vacum in the house that can draw smoke into the house down the chimmney . I think when you burn wood or coal in a house it is pretty hard not to be able to smell it. Our house and clothes do not smell like smoke any more since we stopped burning wood.

WILL BE BUYING LCD TV IN NEAR FUTURE, BUT NEED TO MOUNT IN ON WALL WITH FIREPLACE, SEVERAL FEET ABOVE EYE LEVEL. CAN DO?


Absolutly, I have wall mounted a few dozen above fireplaces in the past 5 years; I can even send you over some pictures and suggestions come time for the install.

What is the wall material? Brick mantel or drywall with wood studs?

Although a TV looks attractive about a fireplace you have to consider that it is fatiguing to watch from such a high height. The optimal average height for a TV is 45" to centre (depending on furniture). If you exceed that by a few feet watching a lot of TV is awkward.

The advantage is it combines the focal point of the room, and instead of having a picture about a fire place, your TV becomes the work of art and can be used as a digital picture frame.

Can I wall mount my Tv above a gas fire?


If your talking about enclosed fireplace with the glass front and the vents from it are facing down. Then yes you can use your judgment though. Just make sure their is enough space between the tv, and the fireplace so their isn't direct heat blowing on the tv. A good 4-5 feet above the fire place or more would be fine.

It is strongly suggested to NOT mount any Plasma or LCD TV above or near to a fire place!!! These are very sensitive to heat when it comes to their lifespan.

Just a consumer quesstion.


Heat rises and smoke has particulate matter in it. And heat is the enemy of electronics. So personally, I would not mount any expensive TV over a fireplace. However, if you have nice glass doors covering your fireplace opening, good updraft in your fireplace, and a large mantel that projects out over the opening, you will probably get reasonable life out of your LCD TV.
