Home theaters have rapidly become a common part of modern homes, offering picture and sound quality that rival those of traditional movie theaters. The advent of high definition televisions and the increasing sophistication of home audio systems mean that homeowners don’t have to skimp on the bells and whistles to get a stunning home viewing experience.
If you have made the decision to invest in a new home theater system, then you have to consider much more than just the equipment you plan on purchasing. Even if you purchase all of the most innovative and top-of-the-line components, you won’t get the experience that you want and deserve if you don’t have the items professionally installed.
If you want to make sure you get the home theater you have always dreamed about, then you need to consult with WIREONE early in the process. By having a professional electrician evaluate the installation of your home theater system, you will know if you need to make any electrical upgrades to install a system that is both functional and safe while providing the desired viewing experience.
Home theaters require more than just plugging in a few appliances. Most systems use multiple components: the television or projector, the DVD or Blu-ray player, the cable box, the stereo system and however many speakers you wish to include (usually anywhere from five to ten). All of them require proper organization and connections, as well as an evenly balanced power load. WIREONE can help distribute that load evenly, and make sure your system can handle the demand without tripping the circuit breakers. Some systems need to be hard wired into your home, something which should only be done by a professional.
All of those components need to be connected to each other, and in the case of speakers must sometimes run the length of the entire room in order to do their job. An amateur job may leave wires in a dangerous tangle or stretched across parts of the room such as doorways and walkways. An electrician can run the wiring through the walls, as well as keeping the connections safe and clear to ensure the best viewing experience possible.
A big screen television alone won’t strain your home’s electrical system. However, when you factor in all the other components you are likely to add, such as gaming systems, speakers, digital recording device, and others, you are likely talking about a significant electrical load. WIREONE will test your system to make sure that your home’s wiring can support the demand from the home theater. If any upgrades are needed, you can feel confident that the new circuits and wiring will be installed by a qualified professional.
While multimedia components and wireless speakers may seem like a great option because you want a more streamlined look, you may have to sacrifice quality when you cut the cord. Instead of sacrificing on quality, WIREONE can hide all the cords used by your home theater system. This will ensure there are no cords showing and keep all your existing decor in place. We can also install new outlets to create a clean, professional look.
Chances are you already use a surge protector to help safeguard your home computer against possible power surges. However, your new home theater equipment is going to be just as vulnerable and a single strike of lightning can damage thousands of dollars of equipment. While it is possible to protect all your new devices with surge protection adapters, a better option is to have a whole-home surge protection system installed. This will eliminate the need for clunky power strips and safeguard all of the appliances and electronics in your home.
