Do I need to unplug my TV at night? Not everyone knows the correct answer.

It’s one thing to turn off the TV only by pressing the corresponding button on the remote control.

  • Energy saving
  • Safety

And it is quite another thing to also pull the plug of the device from the socket.

Many people do not take the second action. As a result, the TV remains plugged into the outlet for hours and even whole days.

It would seem, why remove the plug? After all, the screen is already extinguished.

And yet, unplugging the TV from the outlet at night is worth it. For two reasons.

Energy saving

If you do not pull out the plug, then even the TV with the screen off continues to function.

We are talking about the so-called “standby mode”. Yes, with it the power consumption is very low. However, removing the plug helps, albeit a little, to save electricity.


There is a risk of power surge in the network. In such a situation, the TV plugged into the outlet may fail.

In addition, it is possible that the device will even catch fire.

Yes, the probability of such an outcome is very small. And yet the risk exists.

Therefore, if you do not plan to watch TV in the next few hours, then it is better to remove the plug from the outlet.
