LED : Converting 1000 watt MH to Led? any advice
    #681595 - 08/15/13 01:46 PM (3 years, 11 months ago)

I was having a chat with some friend the other day chatting about...

my favorite topic, home gardening.

Ok...here is the scenario

Say we have a 10 foot by 10 ft flowering room that has an existing set-up of two 1000 watt MH

here is a image just for illustration of MH

Say I wanted to convert the room to LED lighting.

What lighting systems would folks recommend I buy?


If I  also had a 8 x 10 foot room that I currently have a 1000 Watt MH in.

What would I replace that with to cover the same area.

The reasoning behind this potential change would be a significant drop in electrical bill and obvious heat.

Lets pretend that expense is not an issue.

plus if HIL if  you have any experience with high induction lighting ( HID) let me know your feedback as well.

Very much appreciate the feedback thanks.

Im a fan of Advanced LED's Diamond Series, but there are a few others out there that seem to be doing well.  I think for a 10x10 flower space you would end up with about the same amount of LED watts as you are with those 2K HID. Although there could be a few hundred watt difference since HID's use more watts than what the box says. If your just using a 4x8 like it appears from the photo then you could save a bit more.

LED's are making a new push toward the larger diodes and all white chips, instead of the blue/red/other colors that make up that magenta color LED's produce. Advanced has one called the XML that has a few 10watt white chips, which might work for you.

Finding the right footprint for your area is important, so is buying a quality unit. Most of the bad LED experiences have been with people trying to save a dime buying cheaper fixtures.
