If you're in the market for a new television for yourself (or if you're looking for one as a gift), make sure you buy one that doesn't boost the burden of your power bill. Environmental Protection Agency's EnergyStar program has recently modified the way it measures the energy consumption in TVs, taking into account not just their standby power consumption but the much greater amounts your set eats up while you're watching it.
Some things to consider:
Only buy as big a TV as you really need. In general, bigger TVs use more energy and cost more to operate than smaller ones.
When setting up your new TV, be sure to pick the “home” mode setting. This setting may cut your power use by up to 25 percent compared to other settings such as “vivid” or “retail” which are unnecessarily bright for most users.
