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.
In this case, you buy a hood that you can duct to the outside to completely get rid of the irritants. You can choose to buy a hood that mounts on the exterior wall or the interior wall (island). In the former case, the exhaust ducts will be shorter. In the latter case, the ducts will have to be longer in order to relay the irritants to the outside. With a longer duct, the hood must also be powerful enough to force the air out. The duct system must install correctly for it to work efficiently and to boost the performance of the hood in general. Keep in mind that the hood must not be ducted to a basement or an attic. You must read the installation instructions well to know how the hood will duct. Seek the services of a professional if you are not sure how to go about this.
