A TV uses 1,000-1,500 watts of electricity per month on average. The television is not used as much as other appliance which is why it does not use a lot of electricity. The only times a TV raises the electrical bills are on holiday. The amount of electricity a TV uses varies depending on a couple of factors. I have prepared a list of these factors below:
Factors That Determine How Much Electricity A TV Uses
- Type of TV: High definition televisions use more electricity compared to low definition televisions. Analogue televisions which have very limited features consume the least electricity. Digital TVs use more electricity compared to analogue TVs. A digital TV comes with improved picture definition. Smart TVs use the most electricity especially when connected to the internet.
- Size of TV: Small TVs have a small operating system that does not need a lot of electricity to be powered. The larger the TV, the larger the operating system and a relatively higher consumption of electricity.
- How a TV is switched off. There is the right way to switch off the TV so that it does not waste electricity. Switching off the TV involves unplugging the power cable from the socket. This is necessary because TVs use electricity even when they are off as long as the power cable is still in the socket.
