I don't know....

The amount of BTU (can we still use that term?) released by the TV transformer, processor and bulb divided by the electrical supply and Internet access fees probably makes it a high cost heating solution!

Great pic, looks cozy!

Modern LCD TV's use a high frequency switch mode power supply which is far more effieient than the early linear power supplies used in CRT TV's, the power draw is quite low.

It can be in the high 20s (80+F) inside my house and if my wife looks out the window and sees snow blowing sideways across the yard she starts shivering. Proving that whether you feel warm or cold has a strong psychological component so in those terms the Google solution is probably helping.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Beats the heck out of feeding a real fireplace. My fireplace has been pure decoration since about 1984-5 - and I'm happy with that.

I had a 65” plasma. It certainly contributed to heating the house

When my wife walks by the thermostat and stops, I know she's either hot or cold, but for the life of me I can't figure out which - god bless her.
