HD TVs Consumption

February 12th, 2013

If you are thinking of buying a TV, likely be wondering what are the differences between LCD, LED and plasma TVs. Leaving aside the fact that some TVs offer better performance depending on your settings, each one of these TVs have a different power requirement for its operation. For those who are concerned about the environment and seeking a low operation in carbon, having an LCD TV that doesn’t require tons of energy is a huge difference. The energy consumption within TVs HDTV is determined by three features: brightness, size of the screen and the technology that lies behind the TV. The brightness is an option for the user, so he himself can reduce it to low consumption. As for the screen size is concerned, a 52 TV will obviously consume more energy than one of 19 plasma but much more consumed is subjective to the user settings.

The size of the TV. If you are upgrading a old TV tube towards something a little bigger, will likely experience an increase in your invoice of electricity due to the larger size of your TV. The bigger the TV more energy consumes, something to keep in mind if you are worried about energy consumption. A 52 TV consumes approximately three times more than a 32 model. Technology the technology used to display the image is also a key factor in energy consumption. Plasma TVs are large consumers of electricity, so you are not a good alternative for those power consumption concerns that. In fact, a study of consumption between various models of plasma and LCD made for three years, revealed that plasma TVs consume up to three times longer than LCD TVs. Although the technology behind plasma TVs has improved its energy consumption, the arrival of LED LCD TVs has been put on the market a product with a more efficient energy consumption.

The reason why plasma TVs consume as much energy is because each pixel within the television has its own light source. As you can imagine, supply power to each small light source demand much more energy that provide for a group of pixels, which are able to replicate the same image without having each of them having its own light source. LCD TVs using LED technology, instead of black fluorescent light, are even more efficient in energy consumption, since the LEDs can produce more light at a cost of lower energy than standard lighting technology. The vast majority of HD TVs include some kind of technology of attenuation that will reduce consumption of taillight or even eliminate it totally depending on the configuration that the user use. Although these TVs are the best energy efficiency in the market, the savings that can be achieved with them each year is around $20.
