Can I use an Indoor TV Outdoors?


As more and more people expand their outdoor Living Spaces, we are always asked can’t I just use an indoor TV outside? Our answer is always the same, “We will never sell or install a client’s indoor TV outside”. From our standpoint, the reason is liability. Any responsible contractor understands the risk of installing any products outside that is not approved for outdoor use. From a homeowner’s standpoint, using an indoor TV outside is often appealing. Weatherproof TV’s are often 3 X the cost of an indoor TV. However, you should weigh the cost savings versus the risk. First and foremost is safety. Every TV comes with the warning of electrical shock if used outdoors. Moisture and electric don’t mix well. Even if the TV is under a roof, it is still exposed to the wide range of temperatures. Other reasons not to use indoor TV’s outside are collateral damage and picture quality. An electric short in the TV can damage any other components connected to the TV. Outdoor TV’s are designed to withstand sun glare and will provide a better picture. If you are going to use an indoor TV outdoors, consider putting the TV on a dolly so it can easily be moved in and out when needed. Please visit our website @www.wbsouth.com.
