We’re now entering the laziest part of the TV season, when viewers finally find the time to kick off their chilly evenings with the latest must-see television of the day.
More frequently than ever, though, we’re using up that television hours fiddling with the remotes, and it turns out your television is probably the last thing on your mind.
While this first priority is being put off for your own entertaining interest, TV manufacturers have been working diligently to provide users with good enough television, while keeping the battery life of your remote within the range of what will sustain a pair of eyeballs for four hours.
This is why most televisions have a remote with an extra power button, which commands the remote to automatically start, stop and power down the program you are currently watching. Unfortunately, this common strategy fails to teach us a lot about how to clean up our televisions — as most smart TVs save energy by doing this themselves.
This is what happens when we choose to watch our television throughout the night. Keeping the lights on causes the set to waste energy, so a television with a built-in timer can save you electricity, before the time and energy you have spent is even used. But all your constantly switching remotes will do is distract you.
According to Housewares.com, the average television uses between 700 and 800 watts of electricity per year, and getting it ready and keeping it running so you never have to thinks about it again can be an extreme challenge. If the energy drain from simply powering the television and its accessories, combined with the hours you’ll spend fiddling with the remote isn’t enough, getting your television to work as planned can be harder than you think.
Figuring out how to clean the television can be the hardest part of the process — especially if you’re hoping to clean the whole set. That’s because the TV is front and center in many television rooms, and often features some form of hardware that you simply don’t want to toss out — particularly if you have something solid underneath that looks just as much as it does.
Instead of sticking to products like timer-setting remotes, Samsung’s Ultra Clean Tower will help ensure that you’ve optimized and cleaned your entire television set, in a way that provides comfort and comfortability to you and to the watch you’re watching.
The Ultra Clean Tower utilizes a high-efficiency platinum coated medium-density fiberboard (TDF) backplane (formerly known as powder paper) that produces structural integrity, cleaning reliability and toughness in an environmentally responsible manner.
