How high should I mount my TV?

How high should I mount my tv or is there a correct height to mount my tv?

I’m asked these questions by every customer. Surprisingly there is no right answer. Generally I suggest the top of the tv to be 1700mm to 1900 mm from the floor, however it’s a subjective thing and depends on a few factors.

  • How big your TV is
  • Dimensions of the room
  • Type of room and it’s use
  • Construction of the wall the TV is being mounted on
  • Furniture in the room

Let’s have a look a bit deeper.

If you have a large tv going into a small room you don’t want to be lifting your head to see the screen. We would mount the tv a bit lower or vice versa for a larger room.

I mount TV’s higher in a bedroom as the angle you view the TV changes from a sitting position. Now you’re in a lying position. This way you won’t need to prop your head up thus hurting your neck.

Sometimes if your wall is a difficult construction to mount exactly where you’d like the tv to be or your tv is quite large and heavy we will need to mount it where it’s going to be safe and secure from falling down in the long term.

If you have a high cabinet under where your tv is going to be wall mounted then the top of the tv will be higher.

Houzz Magazine have a great article to read as well.

Have a professional install your TV

TV Installation Adelaide

Installing your TV isn’t as easy as it first appears. It sounds simple, just take your new TV out of the box and plug it in. In reality though it’s quite a complicated exercise and if you get it wrong the consequences can be costly. Here’s an Adelaide TV installation checklist and a few tips to help you.

  • Are you physically able to lift the new TV into place? If not, make sure you enlist someone to give you a hand.
  • Have you cleared enough space in the room to work safely? There’s lots of packaging inside that box and it’s going to spread out quickly. Make sure you leave enough room to work.
  • Take the time to read the assembly instructions. I know guys, it’s boring and we don’t usually read instructions, but it does help. No two TV’s go together the same.
  • Don’t put pressure on the screen with your fingers! You may think that screen is tough, but it’s actually not.  Crack the screen and your new TV is toast.
  • Make sure the screws holding the base on are nice and tight. Big TV’s are heavy and toppling over is not only bad for the TV, but it’s a safety hazard.

Phone Adelaide Digital and WiFI today to discuss how we can install your new TV or even mount it on the wall for you.

We were recently called to an Glenelg home to investigate what appeared to be a faulty screen on a new TV.  On closer inspection the cause of the poor picture quality became obvious. The unsuspecting client had picked up the large TV by himself and squeezed the screen with his thumbs, resulting in the screen cracking. End result was a broken TV which needed replacing, before it was even plugged in. Don’t risk breaking your new TV.

Articulated TV wall mounting bracket Rostrevor

Full Motion TV Wall Mount

This installation was completed in an outdoor entertaining area in Rostrevor. We combined the 40” LG TV with a Sanus full motion TV wall mount. Now the happy customers can point the tv wherever they want to view it. Either sitting down at the table or floating in the pool! The inbuilt cable management on the mount allows for the cables to be hidden and also kept safe from damage when the tv is extended. When the tv isn’t in use it folds back flat against the wall ready for next time. We also installed a new TV point behind the tv and connected it via WiFi to their internet connection. Shaun even cleaned up after himself!

Digital tv picture breakup

Digital TV picture breakup

Recent rains have seen us answer more calls to investigate Digital TV picture breakup. Bad TV reception can be caused by many things, but water getting into the system certainly causes problems. Years of being out in the sunshine can perish cables and once the outer protective layer is damaged there’s no keeping the water out. That’s when you’ll start noticing your TV picture breaking up.

Have a look up at your antenna on the roof. If you can see the cable has perished then it’s time for it to be replaced. Depending on the age of your antenna, it could also mean its time to upgrade to a good quality Australian made one, designed especially for our harsh climate.

The cable at the top of the photo is an old cable from the antenna into the roof space, clearly past its best. The cable at the bottom is a brand new RG6 quad shielded cable, the highest standard available. It’s what we use on every installation.

See what else we fix and repair every week.

Call us on 0430 888 138 if you’re having reception problems with digital TV picture breakup. We’ll come and assess the cause of your TV picture breakup and work out a solution for you.
