Air Cooled Grow Lamp

October 30, 2018

A great option for most indoor growers is a reflector hood fixture that includes a built-in ballast for your lamp. You can plug in and use these all-in-one options immediately without any setup. These types of fixtures can also be air-cooled: simply insert the lamp into the fixture and plug the entire fixture into a standard outlet.

In terms of both space and aesthetics, it’s nice not to have a separate piece of heavy equipment, such as a ballast, you must plug in and make room for.
