New Installations Sheffield
TV aerials come in all shapes and sizes and prices. We have installed thousands of aerials of all types over many years. One of the most important factors to an aerial is the wind factor, some of the larger more expensive aerials tend to have a greater wind factor than more moderately priced aerials available on the market.
It is true that the bigger the aerial and the more elements, the greater signal gain. However strong signal gain TV aerials (high gain aerials – as they are known) are not always necessary. Since the onset of digital TV, most areas will have been supplied with main or relay transmitters that will supply enough output signal for most locations.
Through years of experience, it has become clear that the best aerials should be streamlined, with low wind resistance. If however you needed a strong signal because of distance from a transmitter, or distribution to more than one TV, then a masthead amplifier would be the best choice instead of a large, wind catching aerial.
Most aerials now, if installed correctly and optimised with a signal detection meter will provide good reception for digital free view and all of the HD channels.
All aerials are made for internal or external usage though some of the larger type aerials are not easy to man-oeuvre in a loft for the correct positioning to maximise signal detection. Therefore there is no such thing as a loft aerial.
Whilst moderate to good reception can be gained from a loft, the signal is stronger when installed outside on a chimney or gable end.
We have engineers all over Sheffield seven days a week and will make every effort to make and keep to an appointment time that suits you. More About Us To restore your reception, Call us on 0114 358 3478.
