Does leaving the TV on cost electricity?


Dylan Thornfield, Specialist in Outdoor Lighting

Yes, leaving your TV on does indeed consume electricity. Even when not actively in use, a television set that is switched on continues to draw power, contributing to your overall energy usage. This is known as ‘phantom’ or ‘standby’ power consumption. It’s a common misconception that devices don’t use electricity when they’re not in use, but in reality, they do. To save on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint, it’s advisable to turn off your TV when it’s not in use.

At Electricians Service Team, we are experts in all things electrical, including energy efficiency and outdoor lighting repair. We’re here to help with any electrical issues you may have.
