I thought I would write a few paragraphs for a new digital aerial Chelmsford giving some free info and pointers for those seeking a new digital aerial.

The cost of the new digital installation can vary considerably, dependent on the parts required, denoted by the property and signal strength, and signal quality, in the property’s location.  Choosing a new digital aerial in Chelmsford should be made by an experienced aerial engineer who knows the area well, a lot of aerial companies advertise locally (Chelmsford) but are based in other counties and do NOT know the area or the black spots.

Chimney brackets and wall brackets should be galvanized to ensure long life, which Andy’s Aerials always use.  Other companies cut costs by using non galvanized cradles & brackets (some even Painted) to either make more profit, or sadly do a cheaper job.  Most properties now suffer with 4g overpowering signals which need to be blocked.  In the not too distant future we all will need to attenuate / block the new 5g signal which is going to affect our TV viewing

Amplification:  a lot of properties in Chelmsford will need an amp to lift the digital TV signal to the required levels, to be able to receive a perfect functioning picture.  Not all properties need amplification, which is another cost factor, if an amp is required.  Time is another, some properties are easy to install a new digital aerial, and run new cables, and others are challenging and time consuming, which again will add to the cost of the new digital aerial installation Chelmsford


A new digital aerial installation should last years if installed by a diligent aerial engineer, who takes a pride in their work, and is not happy cutting corners.  Best quality parts should be used, as cheap does not last.  There is a massive range of aerials, amps and cable to choose from.  An experienced aerial engineer will know which amp is best suited, for the signal strength and quality coming in, on the new digital aerial in Chelmsford; he will also be able to deal with the incoming of the unwanted 4G signal.

New cable runs should be run discreetly, as no one wants to see an aerial cable, Andy’s Aerials always try to run our cables as discreetly as possible, in some cases completely invisible.

Pointer for choosing an engineer:

  • Local established company knowing the local area
  • Quality parts, galvanized brackets and generous gauge aluminum masts
  • Neat tidy, caring company with proven history
  • Spectrum analyzer, to see issues with signal (not hand held strength meter)
  • Written guarantee
  • An engineer, who you are happy to engage
