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.
