Wall-Mounted TV Outlets

If you’re wondering where you should install an electrical outlet for a location where a TV will be mounted, we can help and prevent any troubles you may face due to poorly chosen electrical outlet location.

The best height to install an electrical outlet is about 1 to 2 inches below from the top edge of the TV from where you want your TV to be mounted. That way, outlet doesn’t get in the way of the TV wall mount.

Laterally, you can put it anywhere as long as it’s hidden behind the TV. But if you install an outlet near upper right or upper left corner, it’ll make it easier to access the outlet during TV installation.

Now, you’re probably wondering what’s the best TV height for optimal viewing. Ideally, you should be eye-level somewhere between the middle to bottom 1/3 of the screen for comfortable viewing.

As you can see. there is alot of planning required to install a flat screen TV.  And the most important is where the outlet should be installed.

Most homeowners shouldn’t attempt to perform any electrical work themselves unless one has some prior experience working for an electrical contractor in the past. It’s just better not to mess with something that can be catastrophic if you’re not 100% sure of what you’re doing.
