3 Reasons To Swith From HPS To LED Grow Lights

  • Save Energy Costs

LEDs offer many advantages when it comes to growing various plants indoors.One of the biggest advantages to growing with LEDs as compared to growing with various bulbs is that LEDs consume a fraction of the electricity, as much as 70% less.

LEDs is they are near zero heat signature. LED grow lights give off less than 10% of the heat that a high intensity discharge bulb such as high-pressure sodium (HPS)or metal halide(MH)bulbs do. Less energy consumption and less heat go hand in hand as the majority of the wasted electricity in HID systems is given off as heat.

  • LEDs Provide a Higher Quality Light Spectrum

Full spectrum (specific wavelength )or customize spectrum. LED grow lights work is that the individual diodes that are in the light are focused to specific wavelengths of the light spectrum necessary for plant photosynthesis. A light bulb gives off white light, which encompasses all the colors of the visible light spectrum. Plant photosynthesis requires only specific wavelengths of light and all the extra wavelengths that are in white light are wasted. LED grow light diodes have a blend of only the wavelengths that are needed in the correct ratios necessary for photosynthesis. 

  • HPS to LED Increases Yield and Product Quality

Full light spectrum ensures your plants receive the exact light they need for every stage of development. And if you use variable spectrum LED grow lights, you can even adjust the light spectrum to manipulate your crop. Using intelligent, strategic light recipes, you have the ability to heighten flavor and increase potency.

High quality LED grow lights also produce higher yields. This is especially true in the case of variable spectrum lights that allow you to usher your crops through the grow cycle more quickly. When you adjust the light spectrum, you signal a change in season. Your crop responds accordingly, budding and flowering at a faster pace. The result is higher yields per harvest cycle and more harvest cycles per year.
