You can get the best LED TV in Pakistan, but that does not mean that it will also last. To make anything you have last longer, you need to take care of it and smart LED TVs are no different. Over more than a decade ago, CRO tube TVs existed and they were, let’s just say low maintenance. You could clean them like you would clean a window. People would even place things like a vase with flowers on its head.
But those times are gone, Smart LED TVs last as long as you take care of them. These days, the majority of people prefer to buy LED TVs the reason being that they are energy efficient and can last you a long time. You will surely get your money’s worth as you will be able to enjoy binging your favorite shows on your LED display for a long time. However, not properly caring for your LED TV, can shorten its lifespan.
Here are a few tips to help your smart LED TVs last longer:
Give them ventilation:
The fact that they always overheat is one of the key reasons why LED TVs struggle to last long. Prevent this from happening by leaving your TV with some space to breathe. You will find your ventilation system behind the panel, so make sure you have at least 4 inches of room between your unit and the wall. It is possible to install most LED displays on the wall today, but that may cause your system to overheat. Try setting it on top of an entertainment center or a table instead of doing that.
Get a voltage regulator
Installing and using a voltage regulator, a system that is used to protect appliances from voltage fluctuations, is another thing that you can do to ensure the longevity of your LED TV life. Many electronic appliances can be found in your house. In the end, power dips can happen from time to time, especially if you use them all at once. What you may not know is that while these dips may be temporary, they may be hazardous to the power caps of your LEDs. Using a voltage regulator will provide protection for your LED display and for all your other electronic appliances as well.
Keep brightness low
If you want to preserve the high-quality images that have been created by your LED TV for years, then make sure to adjust its brightness settings. They work just like your contrast settings; greater brightness means your TV uses more energy. And the higher the rate of brightness, the more hours are deducted from the lifespan of your LED TV.
Turn off and plug out
The easiest way of extending your television’s life is by turning it off and plugging it out when you are not using it. Most people would leave their TVs on in the background, while they are busy doing something else. This decreases your Televisions’ life, so make sure to turn your TV off when not in use. Also, plug the TV out when going to bed.
