Harrietta Gauthier Range Hood January 30, 2019 06:38:10
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).
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.
