    My plasma TVs are much better for heating rooms in the winter. :rolling:

    Which for those of us who live in the desert, is a reason to avoid plasmas. I only have smart-dimming LED sets and keep the backlight as low as possible without that hurting PQ. DVRs are supposedly Energy Star green, but I am not sure that means very much. I also have an AVR with a "digital" (class G) power amp section, but it still seems to run a bit warm for as efficient as it is touted to be.

    I have converted mostly to LED lighting; I still have a couple of fluorescents that would be hard to replace, and no incandescents at all, not even refrigerator bulbs. I have a difficult time justifying running an air conditioner for the same space that I am running heat-producing items, so I try to minimize that.
