Energy-Efficient LCD TVs Can Help People Save on Energy Bills
The United Kingdom spends at least three million pounds each year for consumer electronics. With the development of innovative products, such as LCD TVs, mobile phones, game consoles, and Blu-Ray DVDs, this amount continues to rise annually. Although it brings in more income to the industries involved, the environment suffers a lot due to carbon emission and energy consumption. Hence, energy-efficient products are introduced to the market to help stop global warming. One of which is the LCD televisions utilising LED (Light-Emitting Diode) technology.
Regular LCD TVs use CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps) or fluorescent lighting, while upgraded units use LED backlighting system, which has higher energy efficiency over the other. Another advantage of the diode system is that it has zero usage of mercury, which makes it all the more eco-friendly. Most of all, the LED system has lower power requirements and causes less pollution to the environment on disposal. Yet, the picture quality produced by TV sets that use such technology is not to be bargained for, as details are rendered with superior precision and clarity that provides depth and dimensions to the video output.
At present, consumers no longer choose TV sets because of picture clarity and sharpness alone, as they have began to look into the cost of maintenance and energy consumption as well. So, even those who do not believe in climate change or the adverse effects of greenhouse emission could appreciate some of the benefits of an energy-efficient product. Although not for its positive effects on the environment, but, at least for the savings they can get on their energy bills.Related Article:
