How much power does my TV consume? Does it make a what factors take toll in this size, type, settings?
These are all questions I was wondering so I took the initiative and researched it to write a blog for others wondering the same thing. Fortunately all TVs since 2011 are required to have a yellow and black Energy Consumption sticker indicating their annual estimated consumption. The average consumption turned out to be substantially lower than I thought it was going to be. In fact the monthly average cost is typically never more than the price of an average lunch. Ranging anywhere from $5 for a 19 inch to $38 for a 65 inch per year!! These consumption numbers are based off of the standard $.11/kWh and average usage of 5 hours a day. They also figure it with you the Manufacturer’s factory display setting. These almost always get adjusted once the TV is brought into a home.
Another big factor in energy consumption is the type of TV you have. Plasma tends to consume substantially more than LED and LCD TVs. The fact that they put energy consumption stickers on TVs tells me it was a legitimate concern in the past. At the rate things are going. This is not going to be a concern for anyone in the future. Energy consumption appears to only be getting more efficient with our electronics. For more information contact us at 919-342-0308 .
