While this is a lower end CFM capability, this range hood is a great budget buy and many users like that it does not require specialized or expensive light bulbs. Instead, the light operates using standard 75 watt bulbs. For a convertible range hood with more power than a budget model, choose the Broan QS1 with 220 CFM. Available in five color options, including the stainless-steel range hood on our list, this unit is versatile and will meet the needs of many kitchen configurations.
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.
