Maiolaine Bourgeois Range Hood January 25, 2019 07:38:14
The Broan 413004 belongs to a series of non-ducted under cabinet hoods made to meet the highest environmental standards. It’s among the best in design quality and performance. The range hood offers optimal filtration giving your indoor environment fresh air at all times. The design of the device comprises a removable combination grease-charcoal filter. This offers a cleaner, safer indoor exhaust recirculation. There is also a fan optimized for years of service without requiring frequent replacement. Stainless steel construction is strong, rust-proof and durable.
This unit is powerful yet it operates quietly. Its 3-speed fan produces a maximum of only 56 decibels. Such loudness cannot compare with most other models currently in the market. In order to work, the range hood will require 120V electricity and a 3-prong plug. Filtration is afforded by a durable recyclable aluminum mesh filter. Cosmo under cabinet hood measures 30-inches in width which is the common measurement in houses. This measurement is compatible with most homes. The full dimensions 29.75 inches x 19.75 inches x 5.5 inches. To guarantee durability, the unit is constructed from 20-gauge stainless steel that is 430-grade. The unit is also fitted with 2x3W LED bulbs for energy savings. The five-button controls are easy to operate.
The range hood features a 3-speed motor driving two aluminum micro-cell grease filters. These filters are dishwasher safe to give you no hassles when cleaning them for reuse. To assist you with your cooking, the unit is fitted with two high-quality LED lights each of which has 49 bulbs. This brightness is not comparable with many competing brands that feature only 15 bulbs per LED light. A flexible aluminum duct offers easy attachment to wall or ceiling. However, this range hood from Kitchen Bath Collection is capable of ventless installation. Unlike other brands, this conversion to ventless installation will require no additional installation kit. It comes with charcoal carbon filters.
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.
Ducted types of hoods are fitted with aluminum filters to trap any grease before odors and smoke are forced outside. Some models may feature stainless steel filters. It is you to decide what works best although the difference may not be big. However, you must remember to wash the filter in the dishwasher monthly to ensure filtering efficiency. In case your cooking involves a significant amount of grease (such as wok cooking or frying) then you should wash the filters more often. Ductless hoods usually use charcoal filters to remove grease, odors, and smoke. Unlike aluminum or stainless filters of the duct types of the range hoods, the charcoal filters are not washable. To serve you effectively, you will have to replace them monthly.
From the look, you can be sure you are getting the best kitchen range hood. The first feature that will strike you is the slim-saving design. It will save you space yet deliver you with the greatest performance. For the same reason, you can use the range hood in apartments as well as condos. Although ducted, you can easily convert the Cosmo Under Cabinet Range Hood to the ductless hood by buying an activated charcoal. The carbon filter kit optional but you can buy it when buying the range hood. The ductless option is great for back or top venting. This is because you can install the range hood both under the cabinet and against the wall.
