Are LED Lights Worth It?

When growing cannabis on a commercial level, LED lighting is something every Master Grower should consider. LED lights have come a long way in recent years and are quickly growing in popularity amongst many indoor cultivators. Although they can sometimes be costly up-front, they also have become more affordable over the years. Not to mention, they come with many benefits, that can potentially lower your over-all cost of production. Keep reading to learn about some of the benefits when using LED Lighting!

  • More Energy Efficient: Compared to other lighting, LEDs are extremely energy-efficient due to them using less electricity. Like mentioned previously, it can be a tad more costly up front, however LED lights have a longer life span than their competitors, and can often go many years without maintenance.
  • They Run Cool: This has also proven to be a money saver because less heat equals less money. It also means that you can get away with spending less money on extra cooling systems that help keep your grow tent temperature ideal. Because they run cool, and produce less heat, you also can move your lights closer to your plants without any negative side effects.
  • Reduction in Watering Schedule: This may seem like a no-brainer, but because LED lights run on low heat, this also means that your soil will also remain moist for much longer. This can be a huge time saver as it will reduce the amount of time as well as frequency in which you structure your watering cycle.

There are many options when choosing the right lighting for your crops, and it’s important to know the operating cost as opposed to just the up-front cost. It is also crucial to know how much of your time you are willing to spend on maintenance and up-keep.
