Top Tips for Your Flat Panel TV Mount Purchase One of the treats of a flat-panel television’s light weight and thin depth is the ease of installing it directly on a wall in your home. Even as all flat-panel TVs are equipped with pedestals allowing them to be placed on a TV stand, wall-mounting a TV lets you save space and improves a room’s aesthetics. There are currently various types of wall mounts on the market, so there are a few things you should to know before you take your pick. Picking the Right Mount for Your TV To decide on the right mount, you have to decide what level of movement you need your TV to have, or if you’d rather mount it in a permanent spot. Next, make sure the mount you buy is rated for the weight and size of your TV.

What Do You Know About Experts
>> Fixed This mount attaches the TV tight against the wall, giving a very clean, sleek and custom look. Needless to say, a fixed TV wall mount does not allow for any position adjustment. It is, however, best for installations where you have complete control with the lighting, to avoid glare on the screen; and for parts of the home where people will always be watching the TV from a single position, ideally at the center fronting the TV. As well, these are the cheapest TV mounts. >> Tilting Tilting mounts permit vertical angling without changing the TV’s position on the wall. They do not permit horizontal movements however. A tilting wall mount is advised for installations where a TV is positioned higher than usual, such as above a fireplace, allowing you to angle the screen down. Tilt adjustment also affords you some control over the glare coming from room lights or windows. >> Full-Motion or Articulating Full motion TV mounts (also termed articulating mounts) allow the greatest range of movement for your flat panel TV. An articulated swingarm lets you move the TV towards practically any direction. In other words, full-motion mounts will make sure that your TV is at the right viewing angle at any time. Durability Mount manufacturers use plastic, aluminum and steel as standard building materials. Common sense tells us that steel will probably hold up the longest for larger TVs, but you should feel assured that regardless of the materials used, a mount that is UL rated for your TV will do just fine. Conclusion Lastly, pick a reputable TV mounting service to prevent expensive and frustrating issues with the installation. While any two or three adults can perform the task on their own, it is always best to entrust it to a professional. They’re called experts for a reason, so it may be best to take advantage of that.
