You might feel lost if you couldn’t tune into your favourite TV shows. Watching the box is perfect entertainment if you fancy some relaxation at home and there are plenty of great shows for you to see. However, you might have noticed that the cost of your viewing is rising.
While widescreen, high definition televisions are great to watch, they take plenty of energy to power and the price of electricity is increasing. Also, you might find it hard to keep track of all your remote controls and end up losing or breaking them, meaning they have to be replaced. The good news is, there are ways you can reduce your spending. For example, you can source your new Sky Plus remote controls and so on over the web from firms like us here at BuyMe.co.uk.
Turn off at the wall
Also, you might benefit from switching your set off at the wall when it’s not being used, rather than leaving it on standby. According to a report by the Energy Saving Trust, the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, consumers in Britain are wasting energy by failing to turn devices off.
For example, it found that CRT TVs are, on average, in ‘on’ mode for 17.4 per cent of the time. This works out at 1,524 hours per year. Meanwhile, they are in standby mode for 11.7 per cent of the time, which equates to 1,025 hours each year. Although the devices use less energy when they are on standby mode than when they’re on, they still require electricity.
The researchers also found that single person households, which now make up nearly a third of all UK homes, use as much and sometimes more power than typical families for cooking and laundry.
