Your top 3 pikcs for 30'' vent over Berta 30"? Please help

thedorkFebruary 2, 2013

I know Vent-a-hood is very good but don't want to spend $2500 on a hood. Zephyr? I need a more suggestions please. The range will be 30" Bertazzoni. The kitchen is not super modern - transitional style. I like wall mount chimney style.

Thank you!

You don't have to spend $2500 for a 30" Ventahood. Here's one that is 630 cfms, and is $1300, the PRH18M30SS. Another 30" hood would be the Broan E6030SS which has 600 cfms for $1350. I like these two cause they are 24" deep, so will provide exhaust coverage over your front burners. They also have baffle filters which I prefer to mesh filters. The Zephyr brand that you mentioned I believe makes their 30" hoods only with mesh filters.

The Broan hood requires your exhaust duct to be a 10" diameter, while the Ventahood only requires your duct to be 6" diameter. However, the Broan will be quieter and more efficient because the duct is bigger.

There's also the Kobe CH100DC, but it has 1000 cfms, which may require you to have make-up air, which can be very expensive.

Thank you very much for the great info! I didn't realize the filters are so different.

We are doing a 30" Zephyr Savona hood in our new kitchen. Hasn't been installed yet, but we loved the look and the price was pretty reasonable at our local appliance store.
