Pairing Abbaka roof mounted blower with any vent hood?

auroraborelisJune 26, 2013

I would like to buy the Abbaka roof mounted blower, but I can't afford the premium price for the Abbaka or Modernaire range hoods.

Can I buy any hood that takes an external blower and use the abbaka blower?

As long as the speed control switch in the hood mates with the blower you should be ok. I believe Abbaka motors are variable speed, and cannot be controlled by a three speed type control.

Great! Even the viking hood is $1000 less than the same style of modernaire or abbaka hood, and I could really use that $1000 elsewhere! :)

If so, what did you choose...
