Whether it's a movie night, soap opera or series binge, we're all guilty of watching a little too much TV. But the default brightness setting on your television could be increasing your energy consumption.
By turning down your brightness settings from the default you can reduce TV power by up to 40%. Not only is the excessive brightness dangerous for your electricity bill, it can be dangerous for your eye health too.
According to the environmental group WWF, the television is responsible for 13% of the average homes power consumption. Changing this small detail can work wonders in reducing costs. Why not test it out for a month and see how much you save.
