How To Buy Energy-Efficient TVs, Electronics

Electronics are expected to be some of the hottest gift items this holiday season.
But the City of Seattle would like to remind you that if you're in the market for a new television, you might as well make sure it's an energy-efficient model.
Christine Bunch, Retail Programs Manager for Seattle City Light tells KIRO 7 that plasma TVs are the least energy-efficient, while flat screen LCDs are the most efficient.
According to Bunch, flat screen LCDs also have more controls for adjusting energy-draining settings.
Another big factor, says Bunch, is size. Bigger screens obviously suck more power.
Bunch says that with technology advancing all the time, you don’t have to sacrifice quality for energy-savings.
