If you want to get the most value for your money when it comes to grow light bulbs, you better get your hands on LED grow lights!
Here are the benefits of the widely-known lights:
They save energy
We all want to do our part in saving the environment and reducing carbon footprint. And using LEDs is one way to conserve energy. Compared to traditional halogen, incandescent, and fluorescent lights, LEDs use nearly 50% less energy, allowing the consumer to have a lower electricity bill. LED grow lights don’t waste light and energy because they emit light hemispherically.
They light up instantly
If you want lights that can supply full brightness the moment you switch them on, LED lights are for you! With LEDs, you won’t have to wait for 3 minutes or more just so you can reach maximum light output. Don’t let your indoor plants wait; get them these brilliant lights!
They give more light and less heat
Unlike CFL and HID lamps that build up heat, LED lights provide bright light without heating up! These lights are almost like genuine sunlight because of the brilliance of their bulbs. Because of this benefit, you can also place them side by side, knowing they won’t generate excessive heat. This advantage even eliminates the need for additional fans!
They are tough
You don’t have to worry about vibrations because LED grow lights are virtually 100% immune to breaking. This is possible because they don’t have glass filaments and enclosures. Just so you know, they don’t use glass—they’re mounted on a circuit board instead.
They don’t release infrared and UV rays
Did you know that most of the energy used by incandescent lights are changed to infrared or radiated heat, and only lower than 10% is converted to visible light? And when there’s too much heat and UV radiation, the light will become a threat to plants, materials, and even to people! However, unlike incandescent bulbs, LED lights don’t emit IR or UV.
They last long
One of the most-loved perks of using LED grow lights is that they have a long lifespan. They don’t burn out; they merely dim over time. Since not all LED grow bulbs are the same, they last between 30,000 to 50,000 hours (or more!) depending on the model and brand. They’re more powerful and long-lasting compared to compact fluorescent light which lasts 8,000 to 10,000 hours and to a regular incandescent light which only lasts around 1,000 hours.
