Projectors are the chosen display device in the home theater market worldwide. When it comes to large format home cinema, projectors and projection screens are the choice 99.9% of the time. The only alternative is a massive plasma, LCD, or LED screen that consumes almost as much energy as it expends in heat. This makes a home theater projector a much better choice, but does not leave it completely immune to heat-related issues.

The biggest cause of overheating for a projector is dust. However, while the theater’s sound system is usually hidden, projectors are often left exposed to dust. In most homes, the dust level is very high and often increased by common decorations. Carpets, draperies, ruffled items, knickknacks, books, magazines, upholstered furniture, and fireplaces are just some of the things that increase dust levels. Worst of all, these types of things can be frequently found in the home theater room. To remain in top shape and perform trouble-free for years to come, your projector needs mass amounts of fresh air to keep itself cool. By having it exposed to this level of dust, being infrequently cleaned, and in an area of the house with high levels of traffic, your projector may not perform as well or as long as you want.

By placing your device into a projector enclosure, you immediately provide an extensive layer of protection for your home theater projector. A projector enclosure will reduce unnecessary and frequent bulb changes, reduce maintenance costs, and even reduce the noise level of your projector. This investment helps to improve your viewing experience and how long you can view before maintenance is needed.
