You're inferring a lot that I didn't say or imply.

You want to optimize for energy consumption and heat output? Go ahead. Just measure before and after so you know that it was worth your time.
While I didn't say anything about programmer vs. processor time, the rules about measuring apply there as well. Depends on if you're building a compiler or a one-time data conversion script. And how much does your programmer cost? Again, measure.
Measure measure measure so you know for sure.
