Plasma TV sitting on a stand or table? Does the thought, doing it yourself scare you? To the point you feel you need to hire a professional? Well…it shouldn’t! With a little bit of proactive planning and applying some level of common sense, you can do this yourself fairly easily. While this is certainly dependent upon the aesthetic look you’re trying to achieve in your home theater as well as contraints you’re faced with (such as a finished room), a basic Plasma LCD television installation can be accomplished about as easy as hanging a shelf or a picture.

TOOLS:
A Plasma LCD TV installation requires the right set of tools to carefully secure your precious investment. Unless you can afford to see a couple of thousand dollars fall to the ground and break into pieces, you should only install your mounting system directly into framing studs. Any type of wall anchoring mechanism is not recommended for this type of application. Hence, you’ll need a decent quality stud finder to help you determine their position if you’re working with a finished room.

PLAN:
Locate where you plan to put your television, very important. Why? Because it ties so closely with the view of your guests. Remember, the size of the image source affects the position of your seating. The larger the television, the farther the distance the seating should be from the TV. You also want the television to be installed at a reasonable height — preferably directly in the line of sight of your viewing audience. Hence, these things could affect the location of the TV and the characteristics of the TV could be impacted by the location. You need to balance these things with your overall objectives.

ADVICE FROM A PRO:
Both your TV and your mount will come with installation instructions. Read them carefully! And use the information presented here to supplement your Plasma TV installation.

INSTRUCTIONS:
It’s best to prewire for your Plasma television installation during a rough-in phase if you’re finishing an unfinished room.

Don’t even think about undertaking this project by yourself. You need one other person to help you hold things, especially considering the fact that TV’s are not only heavy (can be as heavy as 100 pounds), but awkward to hold and position on a mount.

Hooking up your home theater components to your TV prior to installing the TV on the mount is advised as the back panel of the television isn’t as easy to access once the TV’s on the wall.

Standard Wall Mount
A standard wall mount is characterized by installing a mounting system on a flat wall. This is the most common approach to Plasma TV installation.

Plasma TV Recessed Wall Mount
A recessed wall mount is achieved when you cut and offset an opening in your wall, mounting the TV support bracket on the offset within the wall. This type of Plasma TV installation is becoming more prevalent and is often done over a fireplace mantel. One important consideration to make when going this route is the size of the recessed opening — if you anticipate getting a larger TV down the road, you may not want to pigeon hole yourself (or make upgrading more difficult to accommodate) by cutting a close fit to your current TV. Size and depth of the opening is also an issue regarding air circulation, as Plasma TV’s typically generate a greater degree of heat (uses more power) than its LCD counterpart.

Plasma TV Fireplace Installation
If you choose this approach and decide to mount directly or recess your TV over a fireplace, you should consider these things to safegaurd against any future safety issues or damaging your television:

A well constructed shelf for your mantel will help shield your television (to some degree) from heat rising from the fireplace.

Make sure you have allocated some space between your fireplace and TV (i.e., don’t install it directly over top of it) — place it a couple of feet up above the mantel.

Don’t use a ventless fireplace or consider installing the TV over a ventless fireplace. A Plasma TV already generates enough heat on it’s own.

Depending on the size of your TV, allow 4-5″ of space around your television and 4-6″ of depth to ensure you foster an adequate amount of air circulation to your unit.
