Hi,

I am rewiring a house in a couple weeks and the customer wants some coax ran in for t.v points, however there is no aerial in the property as the last owner didnt have a tv.

Is installing an aerial a pretty straightforward job or am i best telling him to get someone else in to do that?

Thanks

youse best getting an aerial installer to install an aerial - coax into the attic. then you can fit an amp and wire from there to any points required.

Well that saved me some typing..

For the purposes of the rewire - agree with the client where he wants points and run coax from each point to the loft, where you'll need a socket .......then let the customer arrange for an aerial fitter to do the rest.

That's a daft decision IMHO ........... at least he should have the cable runs in and blanked off.....
But that costs money and not many customers are forward thinking enough to know its a good idea.

I then point out how much more it would cost (assuming its practical) after the rewire, decorating and new carpets are down ..........

Then leave them to ponder.

I write a spec for such jobs, so the requirements are agreed room by room and for things they don't want, I list them at the bottom ....... so they can't say it wasn't discussed!

If the property isn't stuck down in a valley then just stick a loft aerial in.

For a simple system like this there's no point getting an aerial company in?

Plenty of apps and websites to show you the direction of the nearest transmitter.
