Hiller Know-How | Things to Consider When Installing Cable TV Wiring



When it comes to the electrical wiring in your home, we understand that you want nothing more than for it to be in tip-top shape.

One area where top of the line wiring is more apparent to homeowners is in their TV and Internet connections. As such, we figured we’d go through a few things to consider when installing your cable TV wiring in order to give you the best quality service possible. Take a look below:

Consider adding audio. If you are one of those people who really enjoy surround sound, then consider installing the wiring for audio at the same time as your cable TV wiring. This will prevent any unnecessary drilling in the future.

Consider the routing. Depending on the state of your home, you may have various options for how you want your wiring installed. If you have an unfinished basement or crawl space, you can easily have your wiring installed through there. The upshot of this, is that you can have easy access to the wiring should any problems arise. If that isn’t an option, then you will most likely have to run your wiring through your walls, which requires a bit more planning, but can be done by a professional.

Consider the quality of wiring. Though it probably goes without saying, the better the quality of your cables, the better the quality of reception you will have. Check with an electrician or consultant for the best options out there. Though it may cost more up front, getting it right the first time will save you the headache of having to rewire your whole home due to poor connectivity.

Think of ahead. Sure, you might not be planning on putting a TV in the nursery room anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan ahead. Think of all of the rooms that may eventually have a TV installed in there and go ahead and add the necessary outlets. In turn, you won’t have to worry about going through the whole process again down the road.
