Advantages Of LED Grow Lights. Are there substantial advantages to using an LED system as opposed to HID lighting for your indoor grow? LED grow lights have become popular with growers for good reason they offer many benefits that other lighting systems dont. Advantages of choosing LED lights for growing plants indoors include.
The spectrum of light they provide. Greater Efficiency Nearly every grower who recommends using LEDs for growing plants will talk about the efficiency of such a lighting system. LEDs are in fact way more efficient than HID lights, which translates to lower utility costs for you. Cooler Temperature LEDs run significantly cooler than HID bulbs. HID systems can become extremely hot, putting crops at risk of heat damage, and can even become fire hazards when theyre used in small spaces.
Longer Lifespan LEDs offer more than just improved efficiency and cooler temperatures. Youll also get more grow hours out of your LEDs a lot more.LED grow lights typically last for 50,000 hours or more, whereas HID bulbs generally last 10,000 to 18,000 hours, depending on the specific type of bulb. When it comes to longevity, theres really no competition. The Full Spectrum A major advantage of using LED grow lights is the huge spectrum of energy they provide. When you choose LED, you dont have to worry about switching out lights as your crops mature through their growth cycle. Even better you can actually install a system thats tailored specifically to the type of crop you grow. Less Bulk Are you growing in close quarters? If so, thats another reason to go with LEDs, which have the distinct advantage of being able to fit into smaller, tighter grow areas. This advantage goes hand in hand with the cooler temperature of LEDs not only can you create a more compact grow room, but your crops can grow fairly close to the lights without the risk of heat burn.
Keep in mind that heat burn isnt the same as light burn being too close to any type of light bulb puts your crops at risk of suffering from light burn. Reduce the chance of your crops facing light burn by keeping them within the ideal distance from your LEDs 12 to 18 inches. Both the federal government and local municipalities issue rebates on LED lighting systems as a way to incentivize growers to invest in energy-efficient models.
