I noticed a while ago that the the area close to my large flat screen TV is considerably hotter than the rest of my room.
This made me think a bit. And in I guess that since almost all of the energy used by my TV is converted into heat in the room, a proportional amount of AirCon energy would be needed to counter this effect.
Which means, that Turning of your TV might actually save you on your AirCon bill as well.

Id love to see some calculations on it.

Thank you!
