PRLog - Aug. 3, 2011 - THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF.--We are used to seeing yellow "EnergyGuide" labels on everything from refrigerators to washing machines to dishwashers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is now requiring all televisions manufactured after May 10 to include the yellow EnergyGuide. Many of these televisions are already appearing in stores around the area, says Lyn Perry, CEO of Wilshire Home Entertainment, which specializes in high-performance home entertainment and commercial audio/visual installations.

   "Consumers may be surprised to learn how little energy today's televisions use," says Perry, "A 55" rear projection television bought five years ago will cost about $200 in energy costs per year. A new 55" flat screen television will cost between $17 and $24 per year."

   About 39 million televisions are expected to be shipped to the United States in 2011 according to the Consumer Electronics Association. "Although television energy costs have come down greatly over the years, some TVs still use much more energy than others," says Perry. "The EnergyGuide will help consumers make better buying decisions."

   Newer model televisions offer such energy saving features as sensors that recognize when there is no movement in the room. The TV will dim and eventually shut off.

   When determining EnergyGuide labeling information, the FTC assumes the average television is on about five hours per day. The new label consists of two main disclosures: first, the television’s estimated annual energy cost; and second, a comparison with the annual energy costs of other televisions with similar screen sizes.  

   For a selection of energy-efficient televisions, visit Wilshire Home Entertainment at 1412 N. Moorpark Road in Thousand Oaks, 805-497-7536, www.wilshirehe.com.
