Choosing the right TV Antenna for your home

First things first, you want to make sure you choose the correct antenna for your Sydney based home in order to get years of satisfactory signal reception regardless of the location. However, before starting a project of this type SAFETY is the word that should be your number 1 priority.

Precautions and preparation are what could mean the difference between life and death

When performing a TV antenna installation following the proper safety precautions will save your skin. Not only will your life be spared but all that expensive equipment you just purchased will be safe and you will avoid costly repairs to your home and property. In the area around Sydney, and in fact all of Australia, TV antenna installation requires planning, technical skills and a reasonable amount of common sense. There will never be a complete list of all the safety factors you must follow but you can be assured that the following items will be on every list.

Before beginning the TV antenna installation, carefully think about the site where it will be installed and plan out all the steps involved. Ensure that the site you have selected is away from all low hanging tree branches and that you have identified all overhead and underground power lines. A good way to avoid problems with power lines is to make sure you are at least twice as far from the closest power line as the antenna and its mast are tall.  For example, if your antenna will have a total height of 5 meters then your TV antenna installation should be at least 10 meters from the nearest overhead electrical line. Once the installation site has been determined it is time to gather the proper equipment.

Choosing the right equipment will ensure your safety

Almost every TV antenna installation in Sydney will require a ladder. When choosing a ladder for the job make sure you have a commercial grade, non-conductive ladder with a wide base and slip resistant rungs. Since installations usually require climbing and working at height do not plan or attempt your TV antenna installation on a windy day. Wear close-fitting, but not tight clothes to avoid snagging while climbing or working. Ensure that you have the proper tools on hand before starting including gloves, a first aid kit, insect repellent and wasp spray that shoots a long stream. Also make sure any assistants you may have understand the hazards of doing a TV antenna installation and can respond to your call for help.

Quality reception is your number 1 goal

At times signal reception around Sydney, Australia can be hit or miss. When doing a proper TV antenna installation, while safety is a big concern, setting and calibrating the equipment is just as important. In fact, the proper selection of the antenna, the mast, any hardware and cabling will ensure high quality signals are received for years to come. And after all isn’t quality reception the number one goal when doing a TV antenna installation for your self.

As you can see there are so many factors you need to consider to have success when it comes to your TV Antenna Installation. If you have the slightest reservation about being able to do-it-yourself then you need to call the professionals who have experience and can follow the proper safety precautions.
