We own a fairly new big screen TV (not a plasma or LCD, but the old electron gun kind). I know that it takes a comparatively large amount of energy to initially power up the TV when you first turn it on. This is where the problem comes in. My dad says that when he stops watching the TV for a relatively short amount of time (20-30 minutes)it takes less energy to run the TV than to run it off and restart it after the lapsed time. I could see this fact being true, up to a certain point.What is the rough point at which the power to run a TV exceeds the power to turn it on?Any numbers would be greatly appreciated!Thanks!
So there is quite a lot of power there.
If there is no PF correction then the circuit could be unbalanced resulting in more current drawn than needed = higher electricity bills.
