TV aerial installation cost, how is it broken down?

If you are currently researching TV aerials and working out what you will need to do to get one installed on your property, or planning to repair or expand upon your existing setup, you might be wondering what work is required to get everything up and running.

TV aerial installation cost can be influenced by the size of your home, its location and the complexity of the installation that is required. But what exactly will the workers need to do to get everything in place so you can start enjoying digital TV in the comfort of your living room?

TV Aerial Installation CostFirstly, they will need to work out the best place to put the aerial itself, which will usually be on the roof of your property, positioned in such a way that it will get the best possible reception from the nearest broadcast tower. Then to install the aerial it will be necessary for the professional to climb up and get stuck in, using ladders and often relying on the roofing for support as well.

The aerial needs to be connected via a cable to each of the TV sockets in your home and if you are having more installed in several rooms you may also need a splitter to distribute the signal wherever it is needed, which will clearly impact on the cost.

Running the cable through to your loft and then down the wall cavities, or straight out of the ceiling into the required rooms, may be necessary, depending on the nature of the property and its layout.

You need to be aware of all these variables and understand what is involved in TV aerial installation so that you do not get any nasty surprises when the big day arrives and you get the bill for the work that has been carried out.
