Home Theater Equipment – Proper Heat Ventilation, Frisco TX

Heat Ventilation for Home Theater Equipment, Frisco TX

You have invested in your very own media room in your home. You have purchased all of the latest and greatest home theater equipment for your media room. You are planning to ‘live’ in your brand new media room because it is just that exciting. Oh, the possibilities of events you could host in your new media room. Football watching parties. Movie nights with the family. March Madness with the friends. The list goes on!

You are right. It is an exciting, thrilling, “can’t wait until the weekend” kind of feeling. Imagine this – it is Saturday night, you are sitting back watching a movie with your family in your awesome media room, and all of the sudden the movie shuts off. What happened? Could it be the heat gremlin?  What is a heat gremlin? We have the answer and solution.

The heat gremlin is when home theater equipment gets too hot and overheats, which could cause the home theater equipment to shut down. Yes, that happens! Let’s explain…

Home theater equipment must have proper heat ventilation. Each a/v component (Blue Ray player, Receiver, Cable box, etc.) produces heat, similar to how a computer or laptop produces heat. When there a several a/v components in one small space, such as an a/v component rack, that heat can easily and quickly build up, and potentially created issues.

Watch this video for a demonstration and more details on proper home theater equipment heat ventilation.


There are a few other notable factors to consider as it relates to proper home theater equipment heat ventilation, to ensure an optimal lifespan for your investment.

  • They should be kept at a comfortable, cool temperature.
  • The ideal temperature is 85 degrees or lower in the component cabinet. For every 10 degrees above that, there could be a possible reduction in lifespan of 40% (based on studies).
  • Maintain proper airflow for the home theater equipment. As long as the heat from your components can be released, and not recirculate within the component space, all should be good.
  • Place your equipment is a home theater equipment rack, such as the one pictured here.

AV Component Rack: A Solution for Component Storage

AV Component Rack: A Solution for Component Storage

There is a great solution on the market for storage of a/v components in one cleanly-housed place in Prosper, TX. It is called an AV Component Rack. Typically, a entertainment console is used to store a/v components. However, there are a couple of great reasons to consider using an AV Component Rack instead of an entertainment console.

Reason 1:

It is clean, consolidated storage of components. Instead of having your a/v components spread out in various places within your space, the a/v component rack provides a storage solution that is clean, and well organized for each component.

Reason 2:

It is a space saver. The number of a/v components you have could add up quickly, which could easily translate to those components taking over a lot of space (plus the wires!). The a/v component rack goes up (vertical), as opposed to horizontally like an entertainment console.

Reason 3:

It locks. The rack has a glass door that locks. This is a bonus if you have children, especially small children, who like to play with the a/v components. The locks protects your component investment from being touched and damaged.

Cool features of the AV Component Rack:

  • Multiple shelves for storage of several a/v components
  • Ventilates hot air to prevent overheating of a/v equipment
  • Glass door on front provides a view of the components from the outside while protecting them
  • Glass door locks
  • Several options for placement of rack (i.e. closet, inside custom cabinetry, in the corner of the room, etc.)
  • Solid, sturdy construction
  • Looks nice, good aesthetics
