Before the rise of LED grow lights, there were other similar methods in using. These include high-pressure sodium lamps and fluorescent bulbs. These methods were not at all favorable for small grow room owners who need to have a small, compact structure. These lights needed a lot of space to set all the equipment, due to the huge amount of heat being produced and the need to have a proper ventilation system to avoid heat build-up. This mess made that process out of reach for the small grow room owners.
LED lights take up a minimal amount of space, don’t contribute extra heat, don’t need their bulbs replaced, don’t have ballasts to manage, and use half the electricity to run.
Compact and Easy to Install
These lights come in a very compact structure that is very easy to handle. You will not need any specific knowledge to get them installed. You can just have a proper place to hang them above the plants at the required distance.
No Need for Separate Ventilation Set Up
These lights don’t emit a lot of heat and there is no need to have a proper ventilation system. They can work without any huge ventilation setup and type of large fans.
Can be Installed Adjacent to Each Other
As said earlier they have a compact design and most of them can be installed adjacent to each other in order to give more coverage.
Variety and Control
Their wavelengths can be adjusted easily and also the modes for vegetative and blooming phase can be chosen.
All these factors have made us great fans of these LED grow lights, because they give us great results with a lot less hassle and cost.
