So my wife and I were talking about electric bills
And the monthly cost to run the 1000w HPS came up. So I told her my dilemma. My knowledge was out of date and I failed to ask the questions I should have before I dove in and bought a 1000w DE HPS with a digital ballast. Now I’m trying to manage having almost too much light for my 3x5 and knowing I could be spending less if I had went with the right LED.
She’s an accountant and thinking about ROI and now wants me to look into LED lighting. Who am I to say no…
The plan here would be to get something reasonably high-end. She will get on board for a higher end light if it will be a long-term replacement for my HID.
I know HLG is a good brand but that’s about all I know. What are some of the higher end brands I should be looking at and will cover my 3x5 tent for flowering? I’m open to anything.
My main requirement is I do not want a kit. I don’t want to Build any of this myself. I want to take it out of the box and hang it up and plug it in.
The ability to switch it to a veg mode would be cool but not necessary.
More about my set up - it’s a 3x5 tent in a 5x10 room. Vented to outdoors with a 6” AC infinity fan.
My alternative here is to get a 600w DE Ballast. This 1000w is just too powerful for my space.
