You finally got around to renovating your living room! Now you need to put together the finishing touches. You notice that big blank wall that is screaming for a brand new big screen TV, but do you get a plasma TV or an LED TV? With so many options out there, we wanted to help make the decision a little easier. We looked at how much energy each appliance typically uses.

Let’s look at wattage.

 

50 inch Plasma TV = 300 Watts > 50 inch LED TV = 100 Watts

 

Conclusion: To complete your living room and make it play-off game central, we suggest choosing the LED TV! It’ll use less energy than the Plasma TV would, so no need to worry about your electricity bill at the end of basketball season.
