Maiolaine Bourgeois Range Hood January 25, 2019 07:30:05
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.
For a powerful and efficient under cabinet range hood, our top pick is the BV High Airflow Ducted Range Hood. Thanks to a unique slanted design and high CFM, this ducted range can keep the air circulated even with heavy smoke or high heat. This BV range hood is capable of up to 800 CFM thanks to dual motors. It has three fan speeds, with simple push-button controls that make operation easy. The slanted housing of this model allows for better air flow over the entire cooking range. On the underside of the housing, you’ll find stainless-steel baffles and a removable oil filter that are easy to remove and clean.
