The SV218B2-30 has a six-speed fan, which is more speed options than many competitors. At top speed, it has airflow speeds of 900 CFM. This is top capacity for residential range hoods available on the market today. Other standout capabilities include a timer function, a 15-minute auto-shutoff option and a reminder to clean the unit after every 30 hours of use. The dual-chamber motor also is designed to dampen noise and keeps fan noise between 25dB and 56dB. The under-hood lighting is halogen, and located to the rear of the hood. It doesn’t offer as much illumination on the cooking surface as some range hoods.
The keypad is capacitive touch, which required a little bit of a learning curve users unfamiliar with the feel of capacitive buttons. Also, the keypad emits a blue light that is not dimmable. This additional glow is a non-issue for many happy Cavaliere users, but it is something to be aware of. This powerful unit has a mid-range price tag, which makes it a great buy if you’re looking for a high-CFM range hood. If you’re looking for a wall-mounted kitchen range hood that will deliver ample power, high-end looks, and convertible venting options, look no further than this model by Kitchen Bath Collection.

The first considerations when looking for the best range hood to buy are its shape, size, and mounting type. These features have a large bearing on how well the unit will install in your kitchen. The new hood you buy should be as wide as your cooktop or range and about 3-inches longer on both sides. The commonest range hood widths are 30 inches and 36 inches. As a general rule, the new hood you buy should be installed about 20 to 24 inches away from the gas cooktop. Ensure you look at the height dimensions in order to dictate proper mounting.
A very loud range hood is not good for installation because such sounds may be disruptive. The sound that comes from range hoods is measured in terms of sones. Generally, one sone is equal to the sound you hear when a refrigerator is running. Normal tone conversations are approximated to measure about 4 sones while that of light road traffic is measured at 8 sones. Manufacturers of range hoods usually label their products with the loudness measurement in sones. Be keen to buy one that is not so loud. This may become a challenge because the lower the loudness measurement the lower the CFM measurement the hood will have. Therefore, you must balance between sound and power.
