Your entertainment center is the social center of your home, and with numerous components (most of them fairly expensive), it can constitute a considerable investment on your part. It’s not something you can skimp on, not if you want to make the most out of the money you’ve spent. Because of that, you want it to be installed properly by professional Santa Rosa electrician.
Here in Santa Rosa, electrical services can usually help install and wire your entertainment center.
Here are a few tips to help your entertainment center wiring.
- Include longer lengths of wire than you need. If you’re wiring it exactly, precisely the length you need, then they may come up short if the unexpected turns up. Even if they fit, they’re going to put a strain on the components, possibly shortening their life in the process. Always include an extra foot or two of length after making your measurements. Your speakers will thank you.
- Organize your wires. Since wiring, an entertainment center involves a lot of components and because it often results in terrible clutter, it pays to organize your wires before you begin. Color code them with a piece of colored tape and lay them out in expanding order from the receiver (or whichever central system you use). That will prevent tangles and allow you to change the wires quickly and easily in the event you need to.
- Consider running any cables you have through the wall instead of along the floor. This improves the aesthetics of the room as well as keeping the cables safe from damage. You can include it as part of a larger rewiring project, or if you’re remodeling your home (which the entertainment center may be included as a part of), it’s a great opportunity to have an electrician run the wires safely through your walls.
