Our team of bonded, insured, and certified technicians is ready to meet all of your television wall mounting needs. We can take on any job, no matter how big or small, with efficiency and safety to meet your exacting standards.

We do not recommend mounting a flat screen on your own. One mistake could cause you to damage your wall, your electrical system, and your television. The last thing you want is for your brand-new TV and TV mount to come loose and drop to the floor.

Contact Westchester TV Mounting today and you can avoid the type of damage that comes from a poorly mounted TV. We can guarantee that your flat screen will be mounted carefully and securely at a price that you can afford.

Why TV wall mounting?

Customers choose to have their televisions mounted to a wall for many different reasons and the newest flat-screen models are far more safer on a TV mount than located on a credenza or shelving unit. Our team of professionals know how to work with every type of wall, no matter what building materials were used in its construction. Consider these benefits of television wall mounting:

More floor space

Homes or apartments that have limited space can benefit from having a TV mounted to the wall. This will eliminate the need for making additional room to provide the TV with a safe place to reside. Most new flat-screen TV’s come with legs or a pedestal of some kind in order to locate the TV to a flat surface.

But if you opt instead to have the TV mounted to the wall, there is no need for more bulky furniture that is only going to take up valuable floor space you can’t afford to sacrifice. Best of all, we can mount a TV in any room of the house, indoors or outdoors. Buying a new TV shouldn’t mean losing square footage.

Safer home

We stress this over and over again because we’ve seen the aftermath of these disasters. We’ve received many calls from customers after they have attempted to mount a TV themselves with disastrous results. Some customers have chosen to rest a brand new expensive television on the included set of detachable legs only to have someone knock into it by mistake and send the TV crashing to the floor.

Keep in mind that today’s TV’s are far more lightweight and slimmer than even those produced five or six years ago. The center of gravity is very different on these newer models which makes them more susceptible to falling over with even the slightest nudge.

Those customers who have tried to mount the TV on their own could miss a critical step or two in the process. It’s not a matter of if…but when…the weight of the TV is going to overpower the wall material into which the TV mount has been placed. The problem is, the failure could happen at any time and there’s no telling who or what will be underneath the TV when it does.

Increased viewing angles

Many mounts offer a wide range of options when you hang the TV on your wall. You can tilt the TV up and down, right to left, even twist it sideways for complete and total flexibility and versatility when moving the screen. This allows for you to move the TV into the best position for viewing instead of relocating your seat in the room to get the best point of view.

You can’t do that when your TV is positioned on a table or dresser. It puts the TV at risk for being knocked over and possibly falling to the floor.

Schedule an appointment

You can reach us on the booking portal of our website. It’s quick and easy, all you need to do is fill out the service request form so we know how to meet your TV mounting and installation needs. Here are some of the things you’ll need to know when you fill out the form:

Size of the television

We need the accurate measurement of your flat screen or smart TV to get an idea of the type of mount that best works with your TV. You can find the measurement on the packaging of the TV or you can just measure the screen diagonally from the top corner to the lower corner across. Placing a TV on an incompatible mount can spell disaster for your flat screen.

Type of mount

You can find wall mounts for TVs of all sizes. That’s why we need to know the size of the flat screen you wish to have mounted. You should also make a decision on what type of mount you would like, something that keeps the TV flush to the wall or a swivel or tilt mount that allows for more movement of the TV. If you’re not sure what mount is best for you, ask us! We’re happy to help you decide.

Location for installation

Hopefully you know which room of the house you would like your TV mounted. Bedroom, kitchen, living room or perhaps an outdoor patio or atrium. It’s up to you. We can mount your television anywhere you wish.

Choose your date and time

Last but not least, tell us what day you would like one of our technicians to come over. Pick a date that is convenient and give us a time that is best for your schedule. If something comes up and you’re unable to keep that installation date, no problem! Simply cancel and we can reschedule to day and time that works better. Let us know ahead of time and we’ll be happy to make new arrangements for your TV mount installation.

    How high should I mount my TV?

    The ideal height for TV mounting depends mainly on four factors: the size of the TV, how far away you’ll be, your eye level height, and the viewing angle. As a rule, the center of a 42” TV should be mounted about 56 inches from the floor, a 55” TV around 61 inches, a 65” TV around 65 inches, and a 70” TV around 67 inches. But the exact mounting height will vary depending on your eye level, which will vary depending on the height of your seats, couch, or bed. Per the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, you’ll want the TV to be mounted for a viewing angle of not more than 30 degrees. Most people casually sit between 10 to 15 degrees reclined.

    What kind of TV mount should I use?

    Full-motion (aka articulating) mounts offer the most versatility. They can extend from the wall, swivel side to side, tilt up and down, and even rotate. However, if you want your TV to be flush with the wall, then you should choose a low-profile (aka flat or fixed) or tilting mount.

    Can I mount a TV myself?

    Many amateurs try to tackle TV installation and mounting by themselves because they underestimate the potential dangers that come with taking on the job without the necessary training and experience. That’s why today we are touching on seven of the dangers of DIY TV installation and mounting.

    7 DANGERS OF DIY TV INSTALLATION AND MOUNTING

    1. A FAILURE TO ACHOR YOUR TV PROPERLY
      The one thing that usually springs to mind when we’re talking about TV installation and mounting gone wrong, is having the TV fall off the wall. One of the reasons that this happens is because you have not anchored your television to the wall or that you have improperly anchored the TV to the wall. You should ALWAYS anchor your TV when wall mounting and when you do anchor your television to the wall, you have to be sure to use anchors that are rated for the weight of your television and designed for use with your mounting surface.
    2. DROPPING YOUR TV
      It’s true that televisions are getting lighter these days, but the weight of your TV isn’t the only thing to consider when it comes to being able to properly hold, lift, and install it. The shape and size of your television also play a role in being able to manage your television and this only becomes more challenging when you have to lift and mount that TV to your wall! Even with friends on hand to help you, dropping your TV is a real risk.
    3. ABOUT THAT POWER CORD…
      When you tackle your own TV installation and mounting, it’s not uncommon to underestimate the length of your TV’s power cord. This is dangerous for a few reasons. Firstly, utilizing an extension cord is simply not something you should consider if you have other alternatives. Extension cords can be fire hazards and tripping hazards. Secondly, if you stretch your TV power cord to reach a power source because you underestimated the distance between the plug and your television, that stretching can compromise the integrity of the cord and pose a fire hazard or in the very least, cause your TV to malfunction.
    4. ELECTROCUTION
      Yes, we know, it sounds dramatic, but electrocution is a real risk when you try TV installation and mounting without experience with electric. Firstly, if you have no idea what you are doing, there’s a chance that you could hit wiring when installing your TV mount. Although this isn’t as likely as improperly wiring your television or improperly running wiring when trying to hide it behind the wall. Our advice is that you never interfere with the electrical system in your home unless you have training as an electrician.
    5. USING THE WRONG CABLES
      Did you know that when you install your television wiring behind the wall of your home, that you have to use cables that are rated for in-wall use? When you utilize any cables for in-wall installation they have to be rated for in-wall use to ensure that they do not pose any hazards to human health and safety.
    6. PROBLEMS WITH MOUNTING
      When you take on TV installation and mounting yourself, it isn’t uncommon to step back when you’ve finished and to realize that you have mounted your television at the wrong level. The instinct for most people is to tug on that mount or push it upward in hopes that you can fix the issue without having to completely reinstall. Don’t. Tugging, pulling, or pushing your wall-mounted television can compromise the integrity of the solid anchor system you have put in place and that can end up with your TV falling off the wall!
    7. CRIPPLING INJURY
      It’s one of the last things that most people think about when considering the dangers of DIY television installation and mounting, but injury is a real risk that can wind up impacting the rest of your life. Whether you injure your back from lifting, twisting, straining, or reaching, or whether you hurt your neck while taking care of construction aspects of the install, you run the risk of an injury that will permanently affect the rest of your life. You may think that this is only a consideration for less physically fit people, but injury can happen to anyone.

    What are the advantages of mounting my tv?

    There are many reasons why TV wall mounts are becoming more popular for many individuals. Many TVs are now thin and lightweight enough to be easily mounted and come with holes for TV mounting, but installation can require additional effort. Below are a handful of the pros of TV wall mounts.

    • Space Saving and Protected from Children and Pets:
      One of the most significant benefits of a wall-mounted TV is that because the TV is mounted to the wall, there is no need for a bulky TV stand to take up floor space and the TV is safely out of reach of children and pets. Not only does mounting your TV on the wall with a bracket help protect the screen, but it also makes the room feel more spacious and opens up design possibilities.
    • Sleek and Modern Finish:
      If you are looking for your space to feel sleek and modern, a TV wall mount is the right choice for you. Not only is it an ideal option for smaller spaces, but it is also a stylistic choice that is both practical and aesthetically appealing.
    • Easily Customizable to Create the Ideal Viewing Experience:
      Unlike a TV stand, a TV wall mount allows you to customize where your TV is so that it is perfect for your viewing experience and the orientation of the room and furniture. You can choose a specific height for your TV wall mount and allow for additional tilting or positioning for the best viewing experience. If you’re wondering how to choose a TV wall mount, the features of the wall mount and its customizability will be key to consider.
    How many hours does it take to mount a TV?
    Most TV mounting systems can be installed within an hour or two, though it may take longer to attach hardware to certain wall surfaces, such as brick, stone, tile or concrete. If your project includes wiring, wire concealment or sound bar setup your TV Mounting project may take slightly longer.
