Vent-a-hood = huge mistake?

cottonpennyApril 15, 2012

As our new build progresses, the budget for upgrades gets tighter and tighter. Doesn't it always? The hood needs to go over a 36-inch Bluestar rangetop - per my builder I need 900 CFM.

I had originally wanted a stainless steel Modernaire PS-26 (barrel shape). But it's going to run close to $5k all said and done.

I can get this Vent-a-hood for $3300 including shipping, and it has similar specs. I think I like the appearance just as much. The savings would be much welcomed at this point.

I read all the threads about cleaning being more difficult and all. I think I can deal, but I've never had a hood before or cleaned one. At this point, my attitude is anything will be an upgrade from my rental-grade otr recirculating micro - that maybe I won't notice how much better the MA would have been if I never have it.

Or will this be a giant regret? Thoughts? Other SS barrel hoods (42", 900 cfm) that are cheaper?

I think your pricing for the ModernAire is incorrect.

To get the Modernaire PS 26, 30" High, 42" Wide with a 1200 cfm blower, in plain stainless steel as the picture the price is closer to $3700

Thanks, Trevor...

I got the pricing from Patrick who said it was $4607 not including shipping...?

For a $400 difference I would probably splurge on the MA. I guess I will reconfirm that we're talking about the same thing.

According to the price is see in the book it should be

PS2630-342 (model number)

Model PS26
Height 30"
Width 42"
Depth 24"
Blower 1200 cfm

Price $3771 + shipping

Unless you are adding bands and / or special finishes.

I agree check with him again...
