Your one-stop-shop for everything home maintenance.
Thinking about mounting your TV? Whether you’ve just gotten a brand new TV or you’ve had yours for years, your flat screen was meant to be mounted, and there’s no time like the present to get started.
Good question! If you’re curious about the average TV mounting price and how much you should be paying to have your television mounted and installed, the answer isn’t always so cut and dry.
New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and while those resolutions to be healthier are more important than ever, it’s just as critical to put your home’s “health” toward the top of that to-do list too.
It’s that time of year again. You’d be surprised just how many great TV deals are going on this Black Friday, and, of course, when you get that brand new TV set, you’re going to want to mount it on the wall.
Mounting your television gives you additional space in the living room, keeps electronic equipment out of the reach of kids and pets, and, best of all, makes your living area look sleek and modern. If you plan on mounting your flat screen television, there are a few different types of mounting systems to choose from, such as a fixed mount, tilt mount, swivel mount, mantel mount, and even a ceiling mount.
The way we feel about TV cords is a little like the way we used to feel about prom chaperones – we know they’ve got to hang around, but we’d really prefer not to see them. Fortunately, when it comes to cable concealment, we’ve actually got a choice in the matter.
If you want to mount your TV to the wall but know you’re working with metal studs, don’t get discouraged. It is possible to mount a television to metal studs yourself, so long as you do it properly.
Most TV wall mounts that you’ll find on the market are dual stud mounts, meaning they are designed to connect with two separate studs in the wall. They use a horizontal bracket to reach a stud on each side, with about 16 inches being the standard between studs.
Joey Tribbiani once asked on Friends, “You don’t own a TV? What’s all your furniture pointed at?” It’s true—ever since the television set made its debut in the living rooms of the mid-20th century, it’s changed the way we design our homes.
Regardless of what your friends and family might say, if you think you need a 65 inch television to re-watch Downton Abbey for the third time, then by golly, that’s what you need.
Mounting your television is a great way to avoid the expense of an entertainment system (and not to mention, a way to save a whole bunch of space in your living area). And although it would be nice to just hammer a couple of nails in on the wall and hang your flat screen television like a large picture, it unfortunately doesn’t work that way—or if it does, it won’t be too long before the television comes crashing down onto the floor.
Mounting flat screen televisions to the wall has been trendy for about a decade now—and we hope the trend is here to stay. Not only is it space-saving, but it also gives your room a sleek, uncluttered look and enhances your overall viewing experience.
Today’s televisions are bigger, lighter, and clearer than ever before—the old 32”, 40” and 50” flat-panel screens are being replaced so that 60”, 70”, and even 90” TVs are becoming more common. They provide more high-definition entertainment too—streaming, gaming, music, and of course, TV programming. With smaller, light-weight components, these mega-sized marvels are easier to mount on the wall, so we’ve put together a step-by-step guide on “how to mount a TV” if you want to do it all yourself. Not to worry if the job seems a little intimidating, a Puls’ technician can take care of all the heavy lifting for you with a same-day appointment.
As you’re probably well aware of by now, TVs above the fireplace are pretty darn great. They provide you with the best of both worlds - watching all your favorite shows and movies while you simultaneously watch and enjoy a warm, crackling fire.
