Below are some of our most frequently asked questions about the Aqualite Outdoor range of outdoor televisions, advertising billboards and digital signage screens.

Can you use any TV as an outdoor TV?
No, regular indoor TVs are not designed for outdoor use. They lack the necessary features to withstand the elements and may get damaged when exposed to moisture, temperature fluctuations, and direct sunlight.

What is the best way to have a TV outside?
The best way to have a TV outside is to use an outdoor TV specifically designed for outdoor use. Outdoor TVs are built with weatherproof and durable materials, have enhanced brightness for better visibility in sunlight, and come with features to protect against moisture, dust, and temperature variations.

Can I put my flat screen TV outside?
It is not recommended to put a regular flat screen TV outside as it is not designed for outdoor conditions. Outdoor TVs are purpose-built to withstand the challenges posed by the elements and provide optimal performance in outdoor environments.

Do outdoor TVs work well?
Yes, outdoor TVs are designed to work well in outdoor environments. They are built to withstand exposure to sunlight, rain, dust, and temperature fluctuations while delivering high-quality visuals and sound. Outdoor TVs often have higher brightness levels to combat glare and provide clear visibility even in bright sunlight.

How long will a normal TV last outside?
A normal TV is not intended for outdoor use, and exposing it to outdoor conditions can significantly reduce its lifespan. Outdoor TVs, on the other hand, are designed to withstand the elements and typically have a longer lifespan when used in outdoor environments.

Do outdoor TVs work in rain?
Yes, outdoor TVs are designed to work in rain. They are built with weatherproofing measures that protect the internal components from moisture damage. However, it is always recommended to check the manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines for the specific TV model to ensure it is suitable for rainy conditions.

Can you leave an outdoor TV outside?
Yes, outdoor TVs are designed to be left outside. They are built to withstand outdoor conditions, including exposure to sunlight, rain, and temperature fluctuations. However, it is recommended to follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding installation, maintenance, and protection of the TV to ensure its longevity.

What is the difference between an outdoor TV and a regular TV?
The main difference between an outdoor TV and a regular TV lies in their construction and features.

They often have higher brightness levels to combat glare and provide better visibility in sunlight.

How do I weatherproof my outdoor TV?
Outdoor TVs are already weatherproofed and do not require additional weatherproofing measures. However, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for installation, which may include sealing cable connections and using appropriate mounting hardware to ensure a secure and weather-resistant setup.

Should I cover my outdoor TV in the winter?
Covering an outdoor TV in the winter is generally recommended. Even though outdoor TVs are designed to withstand the elements, a cover can provide additional protection against snow, ice, and other harsh weather conditions. Make sure to use a cover specifically designed for outdoor TVs, as it should provide proper ventilation and fit securely.

Is it OK to leave a TV outside in the cold?
Leaving a regular indoor TV outside in the cold is not recommended, as it can lead to damage due to temperature extremes. Outdoor TVs, however, are designed to withstand cold temperatures and can generally operate in a wide temperature range. It is still advisable to consult the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure the TV’s suitability for the specific cold conditions.

Does cold weather affect a TV outside?
Extreme cold weather can potentially affect the performance of a TV, especially if it is not specifically designed for outdoor use. Outdoor TVs are built to withstand temperature variations and typically have a wider operating temperature range. However, it is important to consult the manufacturer’s specifications to ensure the TV’s suitability for the expected cold weather conditions.

How do I keep my outdoor TV warm in the winter?
Outdoor TVs are generally designed to handle cold temperatures, and additional measures to keep them warm are usually not necessary. If you live in an extremely cold climate, you can consult the manufacturer’s recommendations for any specific precautions or additional steps to take. In general, the TV’s built-in heating and cooling mechanisms should be sufficient to operate in colder temperatures.

Why are outdoor TVs so expensive?
Outdoor TVs tend to be more expensive than regular indoor TVs due to the specialized features and materials used in their construction. They are designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions, including exposure to moisture, dust, sunlight, and extreme temperatures. The higher price reflects the additional engineering, weatherproofing, and durability required to provide reliable performance in outdoor environments.

What temperatures can a TV withstand?
The temperature range that a TV can withstand depends on its specific design and intended use. Regular indoor TVs typically have a narrower operating temperature range, while outdoor TVs are built to handle a wider range of temperatures.
