Posted on Monday, 31th August, 2015 at 9:37 AM by Admin 0 Comment

While at first it might seem like a good idea to DIY your TV wall mounting job, you could be in for a lot more trouble than it’s worth. While trying to mount your TV to a wall in your home yourself, there are a whole range of issues you are likely to encounter, and a number of risks you take when fixing and fitting your TV.

Tools and Skills

To mount a TV correctly you will need a whole host of tools, and the knowledge to use them correctly. This will include a stud finder, a power drill, screws and screwdrivers and a level. Chances are you will very rarely use these tools in everyday life and purchasing them will set you back a significant amount of money, not to mention the time it will take to be confident enough to use them.

Installation Complications

TV wall mounts and TV wall brackets come in a whole host of shapes and sizes so it’s a good idea to hire someone who is professionally trained as even the most simple looking brackets can run into issues. If you have a professional TV mount installation technician, they will also be able to help you install new outlets if yours are in impractical locations as they are licensed electricians.

Heavy TVs

Even the lightest TV set can still cause a great deal of damage. Without professional knowledge it is hard to tell if a wall will support the weight of a TV and locating the best place to fix it to the wall is difficult and so you could end up damaging both the house, the TV and its surroundings. This is an especially important point if there are small children or pets around who could be hurt by falling objects.

Electrical Hazards

Installing a TV mount gets your TV up off the floor and creates much more space in a room, and gives a sense of tidiness, so the last thing you want is cables hanging everywhere. TV wall mount installation professionals are trained to help you conceal all of your cables inside the wall, this kind of thing should never be attempted unless you are a certified electrician as incorrect electrical installation can cause a number of hazards and can even result in house fires.Professionals are trained and certified to help you find the best spot to hang your TV, they know how to fix it to the wall so it will stay in place, they are able to position it so it’s level and looks great and they can safely conceal all your cables and outlets without leaving a mess or creating hazards.If you’re taking on a TV wall mounting project, consider hiring a professional TV wall mount installer who can get your home theatre up and running without the risk of something going wrong.
