Why Using Indoor TVs in Outdoor Commercial Settings Is Costly

As a savvy business owner in the hospitality industry, you know the importance of creating a welcoming and enjoyable environment for your patrons. Part of this experience often involves having TVs to entertain your guests, whether for watching sports, news, or other programming. However, using standard indoor televisions in outdoor commercial settings can lead to significant long-term costs and operational headaches.

The Pitfalls of Domestic TVs:

Think about your typical home television. It’s designed for indoor use, operating for a few hours daily to catch up on news or enjoy evening shows. These TVs are not engineered to withstand the demands of commercial use, especially when also exposed to the elements in an outdoor or semi-outdoor setting.

Many bars, bistros, and hospitality venues have outdoor seating areas where TVs are exposed to direct sunlight and varying weather conditions. These screens are often required to operate for extended hours, sometimes 24/7, to accommodate diverse schedules. Standard TVs simply aren’t up to this task.

The High Cost of Cutting Corners:

While it might seem cost-effective to choose standard indoor TVs initially, it doesn’t take long for them to prove unsuitable for commercial use. These displays are not warranted for continuous operation or outdoor exposure, and their lifespan are typically measured in months rather than years.

Venue owners who opt for indoor TVs soon face a dilemma: either leave damaged screens in place, providing a subpar experience for customers, or invest in new screens and incur additional costs for installation. Neither situation are ideal.

Invest Wisely with Commercial-Grade TVs:

The key to long-term success lies in choosing the right equipment from the beginning. Investing in commercially rated TVs pays off in the end. These screens are purpose-built and warranted for extended daily use or even continuous operation. Some models are also designed to withstand exposure to the elements, ensuring they continue to provide an excellent experience for your customers for years to come.
