Have you ever wondered why your Television (TV) aerial stops working sometimes? Has it occurred to you ever why your picture quality suddenly starts to decline? Well, it might be the effect of a weak TV signal.

However, a mediocre TV reception does not always be the result of a weak signal. Sometimes an abundance of the signal can cause an inadequate response too. There can be various causes like faults in equipment used, the weak signal receiving strength, lousy weather conditions, and so on. All these problems can be addressed with the help of aerial installation. Aerials in Horsham help modernise the homes. Latest satellite dish upgrades and high gain aerials are used to get over the essential hazards.

Ways to improve the signal receiving capacity with aerials

  • Outdoor installation of aerials

TV aerials are usually installed on the top of the chimneys. Thus, they typically provide a vantage point at the topmost part of the house. This helps receive clear signals as they block nearby obstructions.

  • Higher altitude installation of the aerial

Installing a TV aerial higher up the house always helps in receiving a strong TV signal. This usually is more helpful for people having problems with the TV signal. However, one needs to make sure that the connection is secure enough with the mast. This also ensures that the aerial is not blown away with the wind.

  • Alignment of TV aerial for good signal

This is usually a professional job. Properly aligning a TV aerial can help with the reception.

  • Install a Masthead Amplifier

Using amplifiers for TV aerials ensure that much of the signal is not lost. Therefore, installing a masthead amplifier outdoors, close to the antenna is the best option. However, it should be made sure that the aerial and the speaker are kept a meter apart. The amplifier should only be used for signal losses due to splitting.

  • Installation of a quality cable

Sometimes the signal received may be lost on the way to the TV. This may happen due to the poor quality of the cable. One should ensure that the core conductor of the cable is good with proper insulation that’s double-layered. A single screened cable can cause a loss of excessive amounts of TV signals. This ultimately makes it weak. ‍

Placing the aerial on the highest spot can be helpful. But it is always advised to select a spot that gets rids of obstructions. Obstructions can be in the form of:

  • Trees
  • Adjacent buildings
  • Sheds

It is often considered as an art to install aerials. Sometimes unique locations can work wonders. Thus it is also referred to as “black art.”  Aerial Man is a sort of artist when it comes to installing aerials in Horsham.
