30-in Wall Hood Suggestions?

Xena99August 12, 2013

I am searching for a 30-inch wall hood due to the cabinet configuration, and wonder if anyone has thoughts on brands/models to check.

I have heard good things about Kobe (but don't know anything about it), bad things about the Zephyr Savona line. Cavaliere gets good reviews on build.com.

I want a hood that will provide 600 cfm at its highest but is QUIET!!! I do not want to spend a fortune but want quality. Ha! Where have you heard that before?

I can provide almost any size duct since I have yet to punch a hole in the roof. I am thinking of installing 8-inch ducting in the rare event we remodel and can thus install a bigger hood.

How tall a hood do you need? Since you're retrofitting, you can save a lot of detail work by getting that close.

I have 12 ft. ceilings so I suspect I will have to have a custom duct cover (aka chimney) made. However, Zephyr has extensions for up to 12 ft. ceiling. I just heard the Savona had issues, so I wonder about Zephyr in general.

Well, I hope we'll be happy with it because we are just now ordering the 30" Zephyr Anzio. I too want quality and quiet, and we too are restricted with the maximum number of cfm we can get. The comments I found about this hood are mostly positive. Plus, I had several different dealers tell me that Zephyr is better than Faber (another line we had been contemplating). As I recall, the Kobe all had more cfm than we can handle.

I take it you have "make-up air" issues in your installation. A friend who lived in Anchorage had a 1400 cfm fan (he had an indoor grill) installed and it sucked his gas heater pilot light out! So he had to open a window when he used the fan on high!

I see in your other post you mentioned Cavaliere has quality issues. I read such glowing reviews of Cavaliere on build.com, can you point me to your information?

That Zephyr Anzio is sure pretty!

We're pushing it with putting in the 600 cfm Zephyr and are only able to do this now that we just ordered a gas insert for our wood-burning fireplace. Otherwise we would have had to go with the 290 cfm. All of this because of the makeup air issue.

I commented on the Faber not Cavaliere. Maybe it is someone else you are thinking of.

I'm very happy with the 30 in Kobe Chx 191 series hood. Though I think the newest model may be more than the 630 CFM I bought on sale at Christmas. Very quiet on low, not bad on high either compared to the old OTR MW!
