HID vs HPS: How much money are you wasting with HPS/MH Lights?
Posted on September 07 2016
Indoor growers have countless details to monitor during the course of a grow cycle, even when it comes to the bulbs on their lights. It’s not only labor intensive, but also expensive to change Metal Halide (MH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) bulbs between every couple of cycles. Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium bulbs each degrade over time, producing less output but using the same amount of power.
Less output means fewer yields over time when they are not replaced with new bulbs. Not to mention, the time it takes to change out bulbs from MH to HPS between veg and flower.
This imperative detail no longer needs to be a nuisance when growing with Kind LED Grow Lights. Less is more when it comes to bulb changing! Kind LED Grow Lights bulbs have a life span of 50,000 hours. That equates to just over 10 years of light when running 12 hours per day. That also equates to no, that’s right, absolutely no bulb changing or shelling out the money for new bulbs every six months. And with the cost of a quality HPS bulb at around $60 per bulb, the savings add up extremely quick depending on the size of the grow space.
Without a doubt, there are countless advantages to growing with Kind LED Grow Lights. Just add the monetary savings and the elimination of headaches from bulb changing to that list.
