LED and OLED TVs often come with a hefty price tag. Thus, a lot of people do not want to spend too much on a TV only to have it replaced in less than a few years. To protect the longevity of your LED TV, here are some tips that will make it a worthwhile investment.
Switch Off the TV When No One is Watching
Turning off the TV when no one is watching is common-sense advice. However, many people leave their TV running all day as they forget to switch it off or simply use it as background noise. With that, the LED TV is consuming electricity through its display while people are busy doing other things. Keep in mind that if you leave your TV running for 3 hours a day that is equivalent to more than 1000 hours a year. Some people even leave their TVs running for over 3 hours without watching them, resulting in more hours being wasted. That is why switching off the TV when nobody is watching is one of the most practical ways to protect its longevity. Not to mention, you can save a lot of money since the electricity bill will also be cheaper.
Fine-tune the brightness
If your home lighting is as brightly lit as a mall showroom, then there’s no need to keep its brightness at high levels. Do know that the average lifespan of LED TVs is around 100,000 hours. Thus, if you are running your TV at maximum brightness, it can easily reduce the 100,000 hours into 50,000 hours since it has to operate twice as much to keep up. So, when you purchase a LED TV, make sure to adjust its brightness. Brightness settings vary by brand but most have “film” or “home” settings that are bright enough. Some models also have “dark room” or medium room’ settings, which display brightness based on the room’s lighting. These settings not only keep the LED TV looking great but also increase its longevity.
Change the Contrast
Contrast is a setting on the LED TV that determines the difference between dark and bright colours. The LED TV consumes more power as you increase the contrast which in turn will reduce its longevity. Many LED TVs that are displayed in shops are set to “vivid” or “dynamic” as default options. Although either two works great in rooms with very bright lighting, it’s best to not keep the LED TV on these settings at home. Doing so will use up the LED lights faster. To lower power usage, set the settings to “standard” or “movie” to consume less energy, rather than selecting the “vivid” or dynamic” options.
Place it near a ventilation system
If you are watching LED TV for long periods, it uses up a lot of power in the home. As a result, it generates a substantial amount of heat which the ventilation system helps eliminate. But many people place their LED TV in areas that don’t have enough ventilation. Such high heat conditions affect the internal components of the LED TV, making it become short-lived. Thus, you have to place it at least a few inches around the ventilation system to allow it to cool.
What Is A Smart TV?
A smart TV is a digital television that works like a computer but without productivity functions. What makes smart TVs different from regular TVs is it supports Ethernet, Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth, cards from digital cameras, coaxial cable, HDMI, and other audio-video connections. This means that you can browse the internet and access media streaming sites such as Netflix and Youtube to fulfil your entertainment pleasure.
