What is TV Installation & Mounting?

Mounting your TV to the wall is a great way to free up space in your room. Modern TVs are typically lightweight with a flat-screen design, making them ideal for wall mounting.

Not only can a TV installer mount your TV to the wall, but they can also hide the cables and install both soundbars and surround sound systems.

Hiring a professional TV installer will ensure that your TV is positioned in the optimum location, at the perfect angle. It’ll also eliminate the risk of damage that could occur when you try to mount a TV alone.

What changes the price of TV Installation & Mounting?  

The cost of installing a TV will depend on several different factors including:

  • Type of wall

  • Type of mount

  • Location

Type of wall

When you choose the location of your TV, you’ll need to take notice of the type of wall that you’re planning to secure your TV to. The material of the wall may affect the price of the TV installation.

It may be more difficult to secure your TV to walls that are made from plasterboard as it is not as strong as a brick. However, this does not mean that installation will be impossible, just more challenging and potentially more costly and time-consuming.

Type of mount

You’ll also need to think about what type of mount you’d like. The cheapest mount is a flat mount that sits flat against the wall. This works well when the TV is mounted at viewing height and doesn’t need to be adjusted.

Mounts that tilt, swivel and articulate offer adjustable viewing options if you plan to mount your TV higher up or need it on an angle. These mounts will come at a higher cost.

Location

You’ll need to factor your location into the price of your TV installation. Prices vary across the country, although they should still fall into the price range above.

Is it worth paying for TV Installation & Mounting?

Mounting your TV to a wall can free up space in your home as you don’t need a TV stand or can use the surface on which the TV once stood for other purposes. You’ll also be able to choose the perfect location and angle for your TV, which is more difficult with a freestanding TV.

A freestanding TV may pose a risk to children who may be tempted to grab the TV and potentially pull it onto themselves. Mounting your TV to the wall eliminates this risk as it will be out of the reach of children and safely secured to the wall.

Although you may be tempted to try installing your TV yourself, hiring a professional TV installer minimises the risk of damaging your TV during installation. They will also work to hide any wires and connect any peripheral devices that you may have such as streaming boxes and DVD players.

There are many benefits of hiring a TV installation professional, but finding the right one can be a challenge. When you search for a TV installer on Bark, you can browse the profiles of companies that meet your requirements and read reviews from genuine clients before requesting a quote.
