Upgrading Your TV Antenna: Key Tips to Consider


The TV antenna condition and the suitable outdoor location on your house play a critical part in the reception and television broadcast quality. With time and due to the influences from the environment, wiring and connections may deteriorate, rust or become obsolete. In this case, your TV antenna requires an upgrade. Let’s consider some useful tips for the best experience with the new antenna installation.

Location

Location is one of the most essential points for decent reception. Two things matter here: your place of living and the location where you are going to install the antenna. This point is also important for protecting the aerial from movement in the stormy weather and maintaining the high quality of TV signal. Antennas located outdoors or mounted on the roof show the best performance, especially if the closest broadcast tower is miles away. For better performance, try different positions on the wall or place the antenna on the adjacent wall.

Height

The other factor directly related to the quality of the TV reception is height. When you are going to upgrade the antenna, opt for the roof-mounted models instead of the indoor ones. If you do prefer an indoor antenna, it is better to locate the aerial on the second floor or in the attic. You can try different locations to prevent the furniture or other things in the room from interfering with the signal. The most suitable place will be near the window, on the ceiling or on the external wall. In this case, nothing will influence your reception.

Try an Amplifier

Some of the antennas have an amplifier that helps to improve the signal and to split it if you have two TVs. Nonetheless, antennas with amplifiers do not necessarily show better performance than non-amplified aerials. In frequent cases, they intensify the distortion and noise. You can try to turn off the amplifier to see whether the reception improves.

Test Different Models

There are several types of antennas, such as directional and multidirectional. You can choose the most suitable type depending on your location or contact our specialists concerning TV antenna installation in Albury Wodonga. If there are broadcast towers near your house, the perfect choice would be the directional model pointed towards the transmission tower. Although multidirectional antennas are great for metropolitan areas surrounded by buildings and houses, the directional aerials perform better if the broadcast station is a long distance away.

Discover the Broadcast Transmitters in Your Area

When deciding on the best location for your antenna, search for the local broadcast transmitters. The broadcast signals can be compared to waves. Thus, you will achieve perfect reception if the greatest amount of antenna is covered by the wave. So, the most appropriate place for the antenna would be in parallel with the wave but at right angles to the direction of the signal.
