LED grow lights have expansion their popularity in recent years. Although growers are finding that the initial investment is higher than HPS, LED grow lights are more efficient.
LED grow lights are more efficient because they have wider spectrum, use far less energy to produce the same amount of light, provide better uniformity and coverage, last longer, have less electricity costs, emit 40% less heat, and more importantly provide higher production and compared quality yields.
In this article, we will give you 12 parameters that you should consider, before buying your LED grow light:
. Desidered Coverage Area
. Wattage per Square Meter (W/m2)
. Light Spread & Uniformity
. Efficacy (µmol/J)
. Energy Consumption
. CRI (Coloured Rendering Index)
. Quality of the Material
. Wattage or µmol
. Replaceable parts, modularity
