Now that you have bought a home theater system, it needs to be installed as well. Instead of doing it yourself, it is advisable to opt for professional home theater installation services. But the important question here is: how do you find professional theater installation services?
There are several aspects that you need to consider when looking for a professional installer and some of them include:
Expertise: A home theater system consists of several components and not to mention the wiring, which includes the speaker cables, the video cables, and the network and automation cables. It is a complicated wiring procedure that can only be done with precision by an expert in this field. So you need to start looking for a home theater installation company who has a lot of experience in handling both residential and commercial theater installation as well as single room and multiple room installations. You need to check how long the installation company has been in the market and the number of clients they have handled. Experts in home-theater installation will also ensure that you have a trouble free experience for the next couple of years.
Reputation: Reputation is an important criterion when it comes to choosing the right home theater installation services. There are two ways to check the reputation of the company: one is over the internet and the other is by speaking to some of the clients they have installed for. The internet is easily accessible and you can Google the company name to find more about the company, their services, their reputation in the market, and feedback or complaints if any. Secondly, you can request the installation company to provide you with at least 3 references. Speak with the 3 customers and enquire about the installation and their levels of satisfaction. Make sure that these 3 customers have different types of home theater systems installed. The main reason is that different types of installations mean higher levels of expertise.
Cost: The pricing is also an important factor and different installers will charge differently. The pricing of installation depends on several aspects like the type of television or project screen, type of audio systems, type of video systems, type of audio, video, and networking cables, types of lighting, type of connectors, wall plating, in-wall or wall hanging fixtures, active or passive splitters, power systems, ups or voltage regulators, cable assembly, audio patchbays, and much more. The cost will also increase if you require a custom theater installation where a plan needs to be chalked out and certain other aspects to be considered like space, type of system, lighting etc.
