Check the ENERGY STAR®
rating on any model TV before you buy! You can find ENERGY STAR models on all types of TVs - and it’s helpful to understand the many features of today’s televisions to make your best choice.
- ENERGY STAR certified televisions use about 40% less energy than other units.
- Most appliances have a name-plate or label that shows the number of watts or amps the model uses.
- Rear projection television sets use the least amount of energy, followed by LCDs, then plasmas. Taking the energy efficiency of a new TV into consideration is smart, because today’s TVs and all the connected components like DVRs, DVD players and speakers can add nearly $200 to your energy bill annually.
