The future of growing is LEDs. They’ve been around for a while, but now the cannabis industry is starting to accept them more widely. So, what are the good things about LED lights? Here are key reasons why you should consider using LED grow lights.
Better energy efficiency
You can grow your plants with less energy. LEDs give off more light per watt than HIDs, and they do so with less heat. This means that you don’t need as many lights to get the same amount of growth. You’ll also save money on cooling costs, since LED lights give off half as much heat as HID lights. This helps you save even more money on costs of operation.
LED grow lights are small and don’t take up much space. Because LED grow lights are made with advanced technology, they can fit more power into a smaller space than other types of grow lights. These units only take up one or two square feet of space, so you can use them in places where you couldn’t use other types of lighting systems.
For example, if you have limited headroom or your plants need a lot of light coverage (for example, if you have tall plants), then an LED system would be perfect for your setup because they don’t need as much room on all sides as traditional HID lighting setups do—and they still provide plenty of power!
Long life span
One of the best things about LEDs is that they last a long time. Most LED lights last a lot longer than traditional grow lamps. In fact, they should last for up to 50,000 hours, so you won’t have to replace them as often (or at all). That means less money will be spent on repairs and less energy will be used over time.
Versatile lighting spectrum
LED grow light is flexible, so you can use it to grow any kind of plant. LED grow lights will work for growing plants indoors, outdoors, in a greenhouse, or in a vertical farm.
With an LED light system, you can get all of the wavelengths that plants need for photosynthesis and growth to work well.
Safer to use and less maintenance
LEDs are much safer to use than grow lights with fans or filters because they don’t have any moving parts. Also, unlike some other grow lights, they don’t need to have their heat sinks cleaned or any other maintenance done. Because of this, they are great for almost any setting where you might be worried about the safety of your plants or employees.
No insect or pest attraction
The fact that LED grow lights don’t attract bugs is another great thing about them. Since pests aren’t eating their plants, growers can use less pesticides and other chemicals. It’s also better for the environment because less pesticide will get into the air and water around your house.
Last but not least, it’s safer for people as well! Malaria and yellow fever are two diseases that can kill people if they come in contact with poisonous insects. If you have an indoor garden with regular incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, mosquitoes and other bugs may fly around your house.
These bugs could bring dangerous diseases into your home, which could hurt your family. Pests like mice and rats love to eat plants grown under regular lighting systems, so farmers have to spray harsh insecticides everywhere to keep them away from their food sources.
No fans or filters required
LED grow lights are also called LED bulbs and LED lights. To stay cool and clean, they don’t need fans or filters. This means that you won’t have to buy any extra parts or even an air filter. Because LED grow lights don’t need these things, you’ll save money on equipment and electricity bills.
Lightweight, low profile design
The lights are also easy to carry and have a low profile, which is a plus. This makes it easy to hang them or mount them in your grow room.
Many growers like to hang their lights so that all parts of the plant can get as much light as possible. Because traditional HPS bulbs are big and heavy, this can be hard to do. But LED lights are flexible enough that they can be hung easily or mounted on walls or ceilings without much trouble.
Can be used in limited space
An LED grow light is much smaller than a fluorescent light and can be put in places where fluorescent lights can’t. They also use less electricity, so you don’t have to worry about running out of power when you use them.
With more people wanting better indoor farming, one of the best things you can do is use LED lights. It is a better choice than using traditional lighting because it saves money on electricity and is better for the environment and our health.
