At the moment the hood is off so no worries either way.
on their site they strongly recommend installing ventilation fans if the lights are used in a canopy.

When Randy and I launched the business, we decided to sell our products with everyday low prices. This way, our customers don’t have to spend time chasing coupon codes or waiting for the ‘big sale’. When you are ready to buy your lights, you can rest knowing that you are getting the best price.




So I guess the answer is "no" to the coupons...


I agree, really nice lights, not so nice price
but not that outrageous either

When you go to check out they give you a chance to type in a coupon code, so they must have them in circulation. I wasn't sure if someone else that had purchased from them may have had it.

Yes, mine cost a little more than that. Now that I'm over the initial shock though I'm excited.

Well I've emailed them, messaged them through the website, and attempted calling them in regards to changing my order to the 6300. So far no response. When calling the phone rings three times then disconnects.

that is more than I have invested in my entire set-up, including livestock.
I DIY a lot of stuff

I just can not fathom spending that much on lights alone.

Yeah, I would have spent well over that and chickened out. However when I add up the box LEDs I have it is not far off

Luckily I just got back from visiting my dad and we played a game of cards for $400 and I won! So now it feels like I spent an average amount on this light!
