It varies a lot, depending on the size of the TV, also on the technology. The big bulky (CRT) television sets use more energy than the modern flat-screens. Look around the television set; somewhere, perhaps on the back, there should be a small firmly attached sticker with the electrical specifications. If it doesn't tell you the number of watts the set uses, look for amperes and volts, and multiply both to get watts.
As LCD technology advances, the power consumption for televisions is falling. Where a CRT television could use 200 Watts, an LCD version is typically around 100W for a 37 inch. Larger screens will inevitably use rather more but even at 50", the power consumption is only around 150W for many screens.
Flat screen TVs do not use more energy than regular TVs. Actually they use less energy. As flat screen TVs normally have much bigger screen and old type conventional TVs, they have higher consumption due to bigger size.
No they use less. Plasma tv use much more then CCFl LCD or LED LCD.
we could use less energy by not not using the TV so much or by turning of the lights when not in use.
About 33 watts depending on the size
an average plasma screen tv usesas much as a small heater
It wastes about enough to burn a kettle for 20 minutes
When compared to a plasma, no. Plasma tv's use much more energy. However, LED technology is the most cost efficient.
A TV uses electrical energy.
A television set doesn't store any significant amount of energy. It does use energy, to do what it's supposed to do.
A television uses electrical energy and changes into sound energy.
A television, and other household equipment, use electrical energy.
when you watch tv you use electrical energy
To turn it on you use mechanical energy produced in the muscles in your hand. To energise the TV you use electrical energy
If it conforms to Version 5.1 of the Energy Star Program Requirements, a 32" TV (16:9 aspect ratio) would use only 55 Watts or less, according to the document at http://www.energystar.gov/ia/partners/product_specs/program_reqs/tv_vcr_prog_req.pdf Anybody have a range for how much non-energy star units use?
Televisions in general make use of light energy to function
you use light energy in everyday life , turning the light on , tv computer .................
Yes, a TV set produces thermal energy by converting electrical energy with the use of resistance.
Some televisions can use as much electricity as a major household appliance. When looking to buy a new big screen TV, be sure to look for the Energy Guide label. This will give an estimate of how much electricity costs will be for a year to run the television. Not only will buying an Energy Star compliant television help your wallet, but it will help the environment as well.
It uses electrical energy,mechanical energy.
it uses energy potential sound energy (: hope i helpt
You can use solar panels, some cars run on it, TVS, heat and much more.
