So… you are ready to buy “A NEW TV” !

Uhhh…. okay, which one?


HouseWide System13775459_299494650441162_7499917034700405623_n Design assists you, the confident and proud “Man of the House”, to make an informed television purchase.

 

Walking through Sam’s Club television row is fun…. until you come face to face with a decision, “Which TV do I buy?”   Every “Man of the House” takes pride in his television choice & purchase. But, in today’s TV market, pride is often preceded with bewilderment in the selection process.

 

Choices of new brands, new features, new sizes and new low prices spawn more questions than answers. Yes, facing a decision with inadequate information is a hollow feeling (no man likes to feel inadequate).   On-line research or reading Amazon reviews can be inconclusive and waste valuable leisure time.   In the end, “TV choice intimidation” results in putting off a decision, or worse, making the regrettable impulse purchase.

 

“TV choice intimidation” is real. Why? Because, TV’s today are not the same as 5 or 10 years ago. For example, a Toshiba, Hitachi, Panasonic or a Sharp TV are actually NOT made by those companies any more.   Since 2012, the three major brands (LG, Sony, Samsung) pushed many major brands out of the market.

 

Yes, TVs still tune to channel 3 or 2333, but also have a computer built-in with sophisticated menus and apps. Now TVs “stream” programs across your WiFi network and you are expected to be the WiFi router guru.  Plus, Internet connected TVs require frequent “firmware updates” with pop-up windows “warning” to download the latest version… “allow 20 minutes for download”.

 

Avoid “TV choice intimidation”! Call HouseWide System Design (940-228-4590) for assistance with your television shopping experience.   HouseWide offers answers, not intimidation, and guarantees less technical complication once your TV is in your home.

 

The “Man of the House” with HouseWide System Design makes a proud and confident television purchase and brings home his intended Calm, Cool, and Connected family entertainment.

A grand old house built in the 1920s caught fire one night, forcing the occupants (pets, too) to make a night time escape. The fire department responded quickly to save the house structure, yet the fire had already caused substantial interior damage, loss of antique furniture and collectibles.
The grand old house fire exemplifies how minutes are counted in loss of property and potentially lives. It is a testament to our motto: “Don’t wait till it’s too late” to get your home equipped with a HouseWide fire alarm system.
