In the past, we’ve talked about the reasons why you shouldn’t mount that TV over the fireplace. However, it remains to be a popular option — and can be quite enjoyable, if you install it properly.
One of the companies making that a lot easier to do is ComfortVu. The company just announced a series of new mounts that will put that big screen above your fireplace safely and beautifully. Even more important, it’s motorized, so you can adjust the angle of the TV to your liking with the push of a button.

Designed for TVs ranging from 55 to 90 inches and weighing up to 190 pounds, ComfortVu can adjust the TV down 34 inches and forward another 25. Besides making for perfect TV or movie watching, this is also a good option for gamers who want to stretch out on the floor.
“Americans watch 250 billion hours of TV annually,” said Joseph Lee, inventor and president of ComfortVu, LLC. “So many of them are uncomfortable doing so because their flat screens are mounted too high on the wall, especially those placed above fireplaces. They tolerate the discomfort because they aren’t aware of an alternative. But now there is one.”
Every ComfortVu mount is made in the USA and comes fully assembled, with its own remote and a 5-year warranty. It’s available now, with an MSRP of $1,995.
