TV Installations

TV installEverybody loves the complete enjoyment of a home theatre system. Perhaps you’re upgrading to a new high-definition 4k screen and want to get your television mounted professionally, or you’re looking for a smart way to hide all that unsightly wiring. The best thing you can do is call a qualified electrician to do the whole job for you.

You might be wondering, well, why can’t I just ask the store where I bought the television from to do the installation for me? Well, two simple reasons:

  1. Retailers are neither insured nor licensed to do this sort of installation. You’re taking a huge risk leaving this job to them, and should anything happen, your home insurance might not cover it as it isn’t installed by a licensed professional.
  2. The technicians will be able to unpack your purchase, set it up and connect it to an existing powerpoint, but they won’t be able to do more – such as installing new power outlets for your tv, or advising on the safety aspects of setting up a concealed wiring system, especially if you need in-wall cable management (which is usually the case for a wall-mounted tv).

Antenna installElectricians have the knowledge and know-how needed to do the total job from start to finish. They can help you choose the right weight-bearing mount for the type of tv you have purchased, so that you’re not putting your new expensive investment in the wrong hands, literally!

They will also be able to check if you have electrical systems or plumbing running behind your wall before creating a cavity for your cable housing. This not only means a neat, wire-free presentation, but also getting rid of any potential fire hazards.

Only a licensed electrician can make sure that this installation is modified according to the structure of the home and does not run afoul of any building or fire safety codes. This will mean that you won’t have any problems with your home insurance, your next safety inspection, or selling your house in future.

Oh, and if the cost of installation puts you off and you want to try and save some money by going the DIY route, remember this saying: “It’s always cheaper the first time around.”

Getting a professional electrician to set up and install from scratch is going to cost way less than having a go at it, only to realise that it doesn’t work. Then you’ll be having to pay an electrician additional to figure out and un-do what you’ve done before then setting it up the correct way. Hiring a professional from the start makes it so much simpler (and cheaper!) and guarantees a job well done that will last for years to come – meaning it’s also more economical in the long-term.
