TV Wall Mount Installation: Reasons To Hire a Licensed Electrician
Many people are ditching the TV stand, and hanging their flat screen TVs on the walls of their homes. When you do a search on Google, there are many “do-it-yourself” tips and videos for a TV wall mount installation that you may think is worth looking into. But the truth is, it just isn’t worth the time and effort to handle this job yourself, especially if you aren’t the handy type. More importantly, a homeowner may need additional electrical work done to mount their existing or new TV, depending on where it is being mounted.
So before rolling up your sleeves and diving into a TV wall mount installation yourself, let’s explain why a licensed electrician like KB Electric LLC should be your “go-to” professional when it comes to this project.
Reasons to Hire a Licensed Electrician For TV Mounting
Experience and Skill
It’s always a good idea to consider hiring a professional for many home improvement projects just for their skill set alone. A licensed electrician has the proper tools and knowledge to mount your TV in a timely and efficient manner. Hiring an electrician with experience and skill set like KB Electric LLC will ensure that the TV wall mounting installation is done right the first time.
Many homeowners who rely on “do-it-yourself” TV wall mount installation tips and videos lack the experience. We have seen many instances where a homeowner has ordered the wrong TV bracket, or the wrong parts to do the electrical portion of the project. This wastes time, and could waste money if something malfunctions and breaks because of the wrong tools and equipment used.
We Get It Done Timely
As mentioned, having a certain skill set means the job will get done timely. When you don’t know what you are doing and haven’t done a TV wall mount installation before, be prepared to spend days perfecting the job. Yes, I said days. Many different items go into mounting a TV. It isn’t just drilling some holes and propping it up on a TV bracket. Outlets, low voltage rings, and HDMI cable cords may need to be installed, along with running wires through the inside of the wall. Not to mention your sound system. Where will that go? All of these pieces are very time consuming for your average Joe. Licensed electricians have the expertise in all of this, which will cut the time in half, if not more compared to a “do-it-yourselfer”.
We Can Make Your TV Look Great!
Licensed electricians can hide all of your cables and wires with minimal holes. This makes your TV look good when hanging on the wall. Many people who opt to do it themselves leave cables hanging down, creating a visible eyesore. Like mentioned before, it takes experience and skill to be able to perfect a TV wall mount installation so that all you see is a hanging TV, and nothing else!
Manpower Helps With Mounting
Flat screen TVs definitely have gotten lighter over the past few years; however, they can still be heavy to lift up onto a TV bracket, especially those with really big screens. Without the help, it is a very difficult task to try and mount the TV correctly on the bracket….without dropping it. When you hire a licensed electrician to perform a TV wall mount installation, you will get all the manpower you need so that your TV ends up on the wall, and not on the ground in hundreds of pieces.
Don’t waste your time trying to hang a TV on your own. After all, it may be more of an extensive process in that you will need electrical outlets installed, feeding wires through walls (so that cables aren’t an eyesore), installation of HDMI cables, etc. Minimally invasive holes and rough patching of those holes also takes a certain skill set to perfect. If you want your TV up and running in no time above your beautiful fireplace, or on a wall of your man cave, pick up the phone and get a licensed electrician for a TV wall mount installation.
