To mount or not to mount that is the question 

The benefits are clear, and you agree a wall mounted tv works best for your home, now you need to take a few things under consideration to decide the best location for your wall mounted tv.

Type of walls to mount your TV to

Generally there are two types of walls to mount a tv: plaster and brick. 

If you want to mount your TV on a plaster wall, it is essential to ensure you locate a stud in the wall to attach the bracket to. Your local Geelong electrician can assist you with this.

In comparison, it is relatively easy to mount a TV on a brick wall; however, it can be harder to run the wires and cables through the wall. An experienced Torquay electrician can suggest alternative options or how to run the wires with minimal exposure. 

Many people want to mount their TV above a fireplace. While this can be a great spot, you must consider if you will be using the fireplace often as the heat from it can impact the TV.

Factors to consider when wall-mounting your tv

If possible, hardwired is best, however if a network cable is too difficult to get to the new TV, our technicians are experts at upgrading your Wifi to ensure video streaming is seamless.

At the same time, while your walls are open for a TV installation, You can also have our knowledgeable Torquay electricians wire lights, speakers, or projectors to create a bespoke home theatre system that works for your budget.
