Maiolaine Bourgeois Range Hood January 31, 2019 06:49:37
The unit is extremely easy to install. Besides being 4-way convertible, it is one of the most versatile hood ranges you can ever buy. Conversion is easy. Simply remove the cover plate from the front side of the hood and install the non-ducted filter (the filter is sold separately). The minimum height above the cook-top necessary for installation is 18 inches.
A lovely feature you will like to see in your kitchen is the unit’s cool light cascades from the built-in LED bulbs. The bulbs feature the newest 1.5 W GU10 LED which is preferred for their energy efficient nature and brightness. The lights will cover your whole range top. The unit’s dynamic and versatile design provides for multiple venting outlet choices. You can vent it out the back or top by removing the panels on its rear aspect. Although the PLJW 185.30 is armed with a powerful 4-speed motor of 600CFM, it operates very quietly. It is among the quietest range hoods in the market compared to others of its size. The unit is backed by Proline’s 3-year warranty on labor and parts.
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.

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.
