Range hoods-Broan vs Zephyr?

RenovatingMrs14July 22, 2014

Anyone have any knowledge/experience with the Broan E661 series range hood vs the Zephyr Tempest I? These are the two that have been recommended to me.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Can't speak for Broan but just recently installed a 36" Zephyr Tempest 1. Granted this is the first real hood I've ever owned but cannot think of a bad thing to say about it. I really liked the ducting options on this unit - horizontal, vertical, round or rectangular. I've got it mounted on an outside wall using the horizontal 8" duct over an induction cooktop. Obviously a short run so it is quiet and effective even on speeds 1 or 2. It goes to 6. I was also looking at the Broan but preferred the look of the Tempest. The build quality seems fantastic.
