There are more than a few things that your Marco Island TV installer wants you to know about your TV installation and today we’re covering seven of those things to make your installation process go much more smoothly!

7 Things Your Marco Island TV Installer Wants You to Know

1. Just Because You’d Like It There Doesn’t Mean It’s a Good Idea

So, you’ve decided that you’d like your TV wall mounted on the western wall of your living room? When your TV installation expert shows up, however, they explain to you that the large picture window on your eastern wall is going to cast an incredible glare over the screen.

There are many factors that can influence where your TV should be mounted and your Marco Island TV installer will be able to explain to you if your selected mounting position is a good idea or not.

2. Drywall Will Not Support the Weight of Your TV

Many homeowners think that they can simply mount their TV onto the drywall in their home and be done with it. This couldn’t be further from the truth, though. If you’ve ever seen or touched a sheet of drywall then you know that it’s particularly light and it’s not built to hold the weight of your television. Mount your TV directly on your drywall and physics will make sure that it doesn’t stay there for very long!

3. It’s Not Always a Good Idea to Wall Mount Your TV

These days, everyone wants to wall mount their TV, but sometimes, wall mounting isn’t the best solution. Your Marco Island TV installer will be able to explain to you in more detail, but the fact is that some TVs are just too large, too heavy, too oddly shaped, too small, etc. to be wall mounted and look good.

4. Your TV Can Be Mounted to More Than Your Wall

Here at Gulf Coast Installs, we have experience installing televisions in just about every room of the house. These TV installations range from the run of the mill wall mounted TV to the outdoor fireplace mounted TV. If you’re wondering how and where your TV can be mounted, don’t hesitate to ask one of our representatives and they’d be more than happy to help!

5. You MUST Consider Where You Will Be Placing Your Components

From amplifier to the cable box, your wall-mounted television is connected to various components and when your installation expert shows up it’s important for you to know where you want these components to go. For example, do you have a mount that can also hold your cable box? Or perhaps you want a small piece of furniture underneath your TV that can hold your cable box?

6. Behind the Wall Wiring

When you have your TV wall mounted do you want to have all of your wiring run behind the wall to ensure that it stays hidden? Or perhaps you’d just prefer to have a cable cover concealing wiring without having to go behind the wall?

7. Know What Kind of TV Wall Mount You Want

There are more than a few different types of TV wall mount and it’s up to you to pick the one that suits your needs. For example, do you want your TV to sit flush against the wall? Do you want your TV to tilt forwards or backward? Do you want your TV to pull away from the wall and go back in towards the wall when it’s not in use? Or perhaps you’d like a TV mount that is as mobile as it possibly can be? Decide what type of TV wall mount you want before your installation expert shows up and then have that wall mount ready to be adhered to the wall. Your Marco Island TV installer won’t be able to help you with mounting your TV if you didn’t even take a moment to buy the TV mount you want and have that delivered to your home before they get there!
