Looking for the best, low resource usage AV (without factoring in price)

Hi all. As the title says, I’m looking for a quality AV that won’t eat up the limited resources our family laptops have. By that, I mean when running in the background.
I’ve used Bitdefender in the past & it seemed to gradually suck more & more resources on order to run it. I moved to Avast & figured out I quickly need to ditch it.

I’ve read about Kapersky & ESET being solid and light on resources but every site out there ranks them differently so I’m a bit torn on what direction I should head.

We don’t do anything crazy. Basic web browsing, streaming, email, etc.
No crazy DLs or anything & we’re very cognisant as to what we click on/open.

Any insight, thoughts, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
