Some users note that the fan is not ultra-quiet, but many agree that for an affordable price, the overall value of this range hood is still excellent. It is only available in a stainless-steel finish, which is the most common finish for wall-mounted range hoods. Choose this hood if you’re looking for a sleek and efficient unit that offers both ducted and ductless operation.
For a range hood on a budget, the Broan F403011 Two-Speed Convertible Range hood is a solid choice. The unit offers a variety of installation options and efficient operation that will meet basic kitchen needs. The F403011 offers convertible installation option – meaning it can be installed to vent horizontally or vertically, or can be installed to operate without ductwork. It offers a straightforward toggle switch to operate the fan at low or high speeds. It produces max CFM of 160 or 190 (depending on installation option).
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.
