As technology has progressed, so too have TVs, which are now larger than ever before. This may cause you to ask how much power is required to run these more powerful televisions.
No one can say for sure because it is dependent on factors such as screen size, picture quality, and the type of technology being utilized (LED, LCD, or plasma, for example). There are workaround methods if you want to reduce your power use but are concerned about your TV not being bright enough. To even out the brightness, you may, for instance, use an LED-lit white gloss TV stand.
There are some things you can do to make your TV use less power, especially if you use it a lot.
Here are six quick and simple ways to significantly cut your TV’s power consumption:
1. Make use of the TV’s Ambient Light Sensor
TVs have default factory settings, but they are rarely the most efficient option. That’s why it’s a good idea to make it a habit of adjusting your TV’s settings as soon as you get it so you can make it work the way you want it to.
Many modern TVs have a built-in ambient light sensor that adjusts the screen’s brightness based on the lighting conditions in the room. Make the most of this setting by keeping it turned on at all times.
This feature includes a light sensor, which detects the amount of light in the room and automatically adjusts the brightness so that it is never brighter than necessary. A less-bright screen uses less power, and this method works.
