Benefits of LED Lighting in Horticulture

Horticultural Installation

Modern LED lights have come a long way since the bulky, heat-emitting, expensive to run lighting that was previously available. Costly ventilation systems were often needed to remove excess heat and protect the plants.

Thankfully, the technological developments in horticultural lighting mean that modern LED lights have none of these issues and a wide range of benefits. LED grow lights were created to meet the needs of the plants, use much less power and are cooler than sodium lights, making it easier for the grower to control the temperature of the growing environment.

They have been designed to maximize coverage and offer full-spectrum lighting for optimum plant growth while minimizing wasted energy and dangerous heat. These lights meet the needs of the plants in a way that traditional lighting isn’t able to do.

LED lights are easily recyclable as the don’t contain any harmful mercury or chemicals, check with your local recycling site for the correct procedure.

Because of their low heat emissions LED lights have a much longer lifespan than traditional lighting, averaging around 50,000 hours. So not only are you saving money, you’re helping to save the planet.
