Peerless-AV’s Guide to Prepping Your Outdoor TV for the Winter
Posted on Wednesday, September 28, 2022

Sept. 28, 2022 - As the autumn weather starts to roll in and typical routines pick back up, homeowners will naturally start spending less time in their backyard. Whether in a warm climate year-round or experiencing the change of seasons, it is important to prep your outdoor oasis for the fall in order to improve its longevity. Check out our tips below!

Prepping for Extreme Weather Conditions

Purchasing and installing an outdoor TV is essential for longevity. This is because most outdoor TVs are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and have built-in precautions. Our Neptune™ Partial Sun Outdoor Smart TVs are designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions, as well as operate in temperatures ranging from -22°F to 122°F (-30°C to 50°C). This means users can trust that they can use their outdoor TV all year long or leave trust that the TV will last throughout the fluctuating winter temperatures.

Installation

In outdoor environments, you have to consider all weather elements within a year of installation. Incorrect installation, poor placement, or low-quality mounts put the TV at risk of falling, dropping, injuring someone, or breaking. If the included Neptune Outdoor Tilting Wall Mount doesn't suit your needs and you plan to invest in a different kind, such as a ceiling or articulating wall mount, to minimize glare and create the best angle for viewing, ensure that it is specifically made for outdoor use and is suitable for the installation area. It's vital that your mount and TV are secure enough to endure the elements to prevent safety hazards and potential re-installation.

Placement

A major aspect of extending the life of an outdoor TV is to ensure it's not being placed in conditions it's not made for or that will expose it to dangers. Never place a TV that is not rated to withstand sun exposure in an area of direct sunlight. Doing so can result in an isotropic blackout–temporary black spots on the screen, or permanent LCD panel damage.
