More and more people are buying bigger televisions. In fact, around 19 million of the roughly 33 million TVs that shipped in 2013 were 40 inches or bigger. Bigger TVs typically use more energy, so finding the right ENERGY STAR certified model for your home is more important than ever.

ENERGY STAR certified televisions use around three quarters the amount of energy as standard models. If you have more than one TV in your home, the savings can add up even faster when you replace all of them with more efficient models. As a rule, LED and LCD televisions are more energy efficient than plasmas. Always be sure to check the EnergyGuide label to compare energy costs before you buy.

On average, ENERGY STAR certified televisions are over 25% more energy efficient than standard models

Remember that LED and LCD TVs are more energy efficient than plasma TVs

If each TV, DVD player and home theatre system purchased in the U.S. this year earned the ENERGY STAR label, it would prevent more than 2.2 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions
