You now know why you badly need to install a good range hood in your kitchen configuration. But without experience and knowledge, reaching the decision of which particular brand or model to buy can be problematic. We are here to help. We have conducted an in-depth research of the various brands of range hoods currently available in the market. We have also read several best range hood reviews to help us make helpful shortlist just for you.
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.
The Broan F40000 series of range hoods provide your indoor environment with fresh air circulation. The F403011 Convertible Range Hood belongs to that series. It is specifically designed to offer installation flexibility with 4-way convertibility. The range hood sets up as 3-1/4-inch by 10-inch ducted opening with either horizontal or vertical ducting. It can also install as 7-inch round vertical ducting or even as non-ducted with air re-circulation. As with other Broan hoods, the F403011 is fitted with a high-quality two-speed fan that will serve you for years without replacement.
The BV under cabinet range hood is fitted with 2-watt assist lighting with two high-intensity energy-efficient LED bulbs. These are meant to illuminate your workspace so you see what you are cooking. The product measures 30-inches L x 22 inches W x 10-inches. Keep these dimensions in mind so that you can compare with the available space for installation in your kitchen. Enjoy a 3-year product warranty if you choose to buy this ducted range hood. You can be sure you are getting a good product because this range hood is cUL and ETL rated.
This Euro-Style range hood from Golden Vantage offers a high-end look that complements any kitchen island. The range hood is capable of up to 400 CFM, which is suitable for many everyday cooking tasks. The Golden Vantage Euro-Style Island Mount Range Hood has a three-speed fan, controlled by push buttons. The noise level is capped at 65 decibels, which is slightly noisier than some range hoods on our list. However, users find the noise level to be acceptable and not overly disturbing.
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.
