If your LED bar is malfunctioning, it won’t be able to deliver adequate lighting to your plants. To keep your grow space performing at its best, you will want to invest in a new LED bar once your old one begins to wear out. At ESTtech, it’s our goal to keep maintenance as simple as possible, which is why we make our LED bars fast and easy to replace. Watch our video below to learn how to replace an LED bar for your grow lights:


What is an LED light bar?

In terms of grow lights, an LED bar is the part of a fixture that actually lights up. It is usually a large metallic strip containing a row of diodes that will emit light when an electrical current passes through.

Why use an LED light bar for indoor growing?

LED light bars are perfect for indoor growing because they offer ample light intensity and distribution. Unlike traditional bulbs, they can deliver even coverage to all of your plants. Additionally, LED bars are highly durable and can last for 50,000 hours or more before needing to be replaced.

Can I replace the light bulbs inside of the LED bar?

Contrary to common belief, LED bars do not contain individual light bulbs. Instead, they use rows of diodes that light up when the fixture is on. Though these diodes are designed to last for thousands of hours of use, they will eventually go out. Since there are no light bulbs to change, growers will need to invest in a new LED bar once the diodes begin to fade.

When should I replace my LED bar?

Though LED light bars are built to withstand years of use, they will wear out over time and need to be replaced after a few years. Here are some common signs that you need a new LED light bar:

Flickering or dimming
Uneven light distribution
Lights not turning on
Varying brightness levels

If you are running into any of these issues, it may be time to invest in a new LED bar. However, be sure to check for other potential causes such as poor electrical connections, improper installation, or a worn-out driver box.
