What Are LED Grow Lights?
LED grow lights are a new type of technology that is starting to gain leeway in the world of hydroponics and other types of plant growing. A lot of people have been reluctant to start using them, because they think of the tiny LED lights that would be used in Christmas trees or torches, for instance. In reality, however, high quality LED grow lights are effective, powerful and space saving.
LED technology is nothing new. However, more and more applications for this technology are being discovered and the modern world is increasingly lit up by LED. They have become popular for indoor growers for some time now. However, they were always used for supplementary lighting. Most growers would use HID systems, and would then add a few LED panels. Today, however, these panels give off sufficient light to keep a whole grow room bright.
The best LED grow lights are self-contained and come in a variety of sizes and shapes. This means you can find one that is completely suitable for your personal growing needs.
The Benefits of LED Grow Lights
There are endless benefits associated with installing high quality LED grow lights. Some of these include:
- Space saving features. The panels and lights are relatively small and they can move throughout your growth room. This means you can freely access your plants and care for them.
- Running temperature is low. Even when running at full capacity, the lamps are just warm to the touch. This means that you don't need any expensive cooling system and you don't run the risk of burning your plants.
- They are highly efficient in terms of power usage. The best LED grow lights are not only incredibly powerful, they are also fully efficient in terms of how they use power. They can produce a great deal of light without increasing your energy bills massively. This means you save money in the long run, making you more profitable on your plants as well.
- They have a long lifespan. LED grow lights can burn between 50,000 and 100,000 hours before needing to be replaced. This is up to five times as long as traditional growing lamps. As such, they save even more money.
Having truly high quality LED grow lights is vital to the success of your plants, as you can see.
