Mistakes To Avoid When Installing Your Television

You just bought a brand-new television. Before you actually get into installing it, you should probably read the instruction manual on how you should be installing it. But since most people do not bother doing so, they end up making a number of mistakes that are best avoided. Here are some of them: 

Mounting the television too high – one of the most common mistakes people make when installing the TV wall mounting Perth is simply mounting the television too high. This is often because you install the television whilst standing, and you fit it at your height level, instead of considering the height of your line of sight when sitting. If you have to strain your neck upwards to look at the television once you sit down, you know that you have positioned your television too high for it to be comfortable. The correct height placement of your television should depend on a number of factors, including the distance from your preferred seating, the layout of the room, the size of your television, etc. Fortunately, modern televisions often come with programs and instruction manuals that help you correctly gauge the height at which your television should be.

  • Not separating and arranging the wiring correctly – if there is one thing you should not be doing because it is dangerous, it is not taking the time to arrange your wiring properly. From understanding which electrical sockets and data points to use, to properly arranging and keeping electrical wiring out of the way, you need to pay attention to make sure that no one will trip and injure themselves. Also know that if you do not separate AV cabling and regular electrical wiring, this can actually have a detrimental effect on the overall quality of the audio and video played by your television. As such, both to ensure your safety and the quality of the television output, make it a point to separate and arrange your wiring accordingly.
    • Foregoing surge protection – unless you believe yourself (and your electrical equipment) to be extremely lucky, you are making a big mistake in foregoing surge protection for your television. Most warranties nowadays require your electric equipment to be guarded against sudden charges and lightning as well, and since you are probably going to watch the television even when it is lightning, it makes more sense to invest in surge protection than it does to forego it.
      • Not performing calibration – if you get the feeling that the images or the sound from your television are not clear as you would like it to be, chances are it is not the fault of television, but that you simply did not calibrate it. This especially applies if you are making use of a wall mount instead of a regular stand.
