Do Bigger TVs Use More Electricity??

This has many of us wondering how much energy it takes to power these bigger, brighter TVs.

Energy use goes up as the resolution increases, which means a 720p plasma TV will consume less energy than a 1080p plasma TV.

How much power does a 42 inch LED TV use?

Do smart TVs use more electricity?

A smart TV uses your home network to provide streaming video and services on your TV, and smart TVs use wired Ethernet and built-in Wi-Fi to stay connected. Most current TVs support 802.11ac Wi-Fi, but watch for older models, which may still use the older 802.11n standard.

How many watts does a 55 inch LED TV use?

According to one product review site, a 32” LED TV uses about 18 watts of energy. Moving up to a 40” LED increases that energy use to 31 watts – not a huge difference. But a 55” LED TV uses about 57 watts or 2x the amount of electricity as a 32” TV (though still very little electricity).
