Pros and Cons for your Outdoor Television
Before you decide to have a TV installation outside, you must consider the advantages and disadvantages of this option.
Outdoor Television Pros
You can enjoy the game and your favorite shows while enjoying the backyard. You no longer have to choose one or the other. No longer must you be cooped up inside on a beautiful day.
Your house becomes the place to be. Friends and family want to visit and hang outside with you, especially during the big games. You can also host a nighttime movie with loved ones.
Enjoy it year-round. With the right equipment on your patio, there’s no reason you can’t be outside all year. During the summer, hop in your pool to cool off and use a patio heater during the colder months.
Cook while you watch. Fire up the grill and cook a delicious meal while watching your favorite sports team. You’ll never miss a moment of the action again.
Switch easily between your TV and sound system. When there’s nothing to watch, crank up the music instead.
Increase the value of your home. Setting up the patio as a home theater area only increases the value. Until you decide to sell, you get to enjoy the benefits of the investment.
Outdoor Television Cons
You can’t use an indoor TV. You must invest in an outdoor TV, which does cost more money. The weather outdoors does not make it feasible to use your household TV on the patio. When it comes to outdoor living, this is something you must consider.
You have some extra costs. For your TV to be installed outdoors, you do have some additional setup costs to figure in. Between the special TV, wall mount, outdoor speakers and speaker wires, there are more installation details that must be worked out.
Where Is the Best Location for Your Outdoor Television?
When we evaluate your backyard design for outdoor TV installation, we look at a few factors. We want to ensure that you receive the best entertainment option to enhance the patio, pool and backyard experience.
That’s why we first find a location where the TV is protected from the elements. It’s best if you have a roofed-in spot that avoids direct sunlight and storms. Not only does this enhance the viewing clarity, but it also extends the lifespan of your TV.
You also want to find a location that makes sense for the layout of your patio. We must install the TV mount in a place where your family spends time; otherwise, there’s no point in having it there.
We also need to mount your outdoor television away from any structures that might damage it. We like to follow the six-foot rule when it comes to the BBQ because of the extreme temperatures. You also don’t want it hanging too close to a pool or it might get wet.
Outdoor TVs do include anti-glare technology, but you still want it to stay out of the sun’s rays. While putting it in a shaded area is helpful, it’s also wise to mount it facing south. With this configuration, the rays never directly hit the TV and you don’t have to look into the extra-bright sun while viewing your favorite shows.
Patio/Outdoor TV Installation & Audio System
When we set up your outdoor TV and patio audio system, you receive the following services.
- We begin with a pre-installation walkthrough.
- Our team works with you to design a plan.
- Before installation, we test all of the equipment.
- We mount, setup and configure the new TV.
- Your A/V equipment is connected, including any gaming consoles you have.
- All of the cables and wires are properly concealed.
- We clean up the area and train you on the equipment.
When we install your outdoor equipment, we evaluate the surface for mounting. We decide if it’s best to use a wall or ceiling. There are racks and supplies for either. Then, we ensure you have the right TV for the job. We want to make sure you have the high power and high volume you desire.
Never Install an Indoor TV Outside
Some people unknowingly take their household TV outside and think they can create a patio theater. This is unwise for numerous reasons, including:
Safety – The indoor TV has ventilation holes so heat can escape. When this type is placed in the elements, moisture, dust, insects and dirt find their way into the TV. This leads to short-circuiting and can cause electrocution.
Low volume – The indoor TV doesn’t have the power or volume you need for outdoor viewing. That’s why you want a complete wired or wireless speaker setup in conjunction with a high-quality outdoor TV.
Temperature changes – The indoor TV isn’t designed to handle rapid temperature swings. These fast adjustments create air filled with moisture. An indoor TV ends up with corrosion on the circuitry as a result. Outdoor TVs have heavily conformal coated circuitry for maximum protection.
Glare – If you’ve ever watched TV in a sunny room, you know it doesn’t work out well. All you experience is a glare that makes you want to turn the TV off. When viewing outside, you need an anti-glare coating, which makes it possible to see all of the action. In addition, exposing indoor TVs to ultraviolet light causes deterioration.
Warranty – Read your paperwork. You will likely void your warranty by taking your indoor TV outside.
