Reasons to Consult an Electrician for Your Flat Screen TV Installation

One of the biggest benefits to the modern and sleek design of a flat screen TV is that you can leverage vertical space by mounting your TV to a wall. But doing it right takes more than a bracket and a few screws. Rather than having unsightly cords hanging down your wall, a licensed electrician can run wiring directly to your TV that is neatly concealed behind the wall.

Keep Things Tidy with Concealed Wiring

Safety and convenience are among the top reasons that many homeowners choose to go with professional installation by a licensed electrician. But aesthetics can factor into the decision too. While your DIY project has to work around existing wiring, an electrician has a lot more flexibility.

A professionally installed flat screen TV is flush against the wall without wires are cables running down the wall. Electricians can work around the location of your existing outlets by simply installing a new recessed outlet or concealing wiring behind the existing wall. And that goes for all the wiring that you need to run your entertainment center, including cable and internet connections as well as electricity.

Create an Integrated Entertainment Experience

Have you taken a close look at all the wires that connect your home entertainment system? Your TV, audio, and media components all have to plug into something. Even if you use Bluetooth connections to stream media, each unit still needs power. Plus, if you have the option to hardwire, it provides a more reliable connection.

A licensed electrician can connect cable and internet wiring as well as audio and speaker wiring to create a home entertainment system that works together seamlessly. And a professional installation typically comes with a satisfaction guarantee or labor warranty that will offer a layer of protection in case something goes wrong.

Get Peace of Mind that the Job is Done Right

A wonky electrical connection may be the least of your worries if you rely on amateur electrical work. Well-meaning DIY handiwork can lead to devastating accidents that put you and your family at risk of electrocution or a house fire. Hiring a licensed electrician is the best way to protect your home and family. Plus, you can have your Saturday afternoon back instead of spending hours trying to figure out why your TV won’t turn on.

The Bottom Line

Mounting a flat screen TV to a wall is one of those projects that many homeowners are tempted to tackle themselves. But it’s also a project that can get complicated quickly. If you need to relocate outlets or manipulate wiring to get the look you want, it’s best to hire an electrician. Work done by a self-proclaimed handyman is one of the leading causes of accidental home fires. Livewire Electrical is a leading residential and commercial electrician in the Charlotte, NC, area.
