Trusted Antenna Service For Installation & Replacement
New Antenna Installation Or Upgrade Old Installation
Some builders have a television antenna installed on their new homes while others leave this up to the new home owner. We are able to, as well as relocate existing antennas for solar installations. Either way, these installations are typically fairly straight forward, requiring a roof mount, antenna, cable, splitter and access into the ceiling space to complete the hook up to the internal cables run by the electrician.
In instances where a home hub is installed the antenna cable will be connected directly to the distribution hub. A digital meter is used to site the antenna for best signal reception and to test the outlet points in the home. If the signal strength is poor an amplifier may be used to boost the incoming signal to provide good pictures. Our installers will wherever possible, locate an antenna on a roof mount and to the rear of the home where it is less likely to be featured in the view from the street.

Reception Problems And Damaged Antenna Replacement
An antenna may give poor results or cease working for a number of reasons. Plastics become brittle over time and may break in high winds or storms. Large birds can take their toll as well as nearby tree branches whipping about in the wind. Ingress of water and corrosion in the balun can be a problem, and the cable should be in good condition.
Older homes may have flat ribbon cable which is prone to breakage and this should be replaced with good quality coaxial cable. Where flat ribbon has been used in unit buildings it is generally not able to be replaced except by running new cable. Depending on the building, cables can be sometimes replaced internally, but where this is impossible they must be run externally on the building surfaces. The appearance of the building needs to be taken into account if this option is being considered. Digital only signal and changes in TV antenna design has resulted in antennas which are more efficient, lighter and smaller than most older TV antennas. This should mean not only better results in picture quality, but also a less noticeable addition to the building.
We can identify whatever causes poor reception problems and advise on the best option to improve your viewing experience.
