Best iQ hood insert reviews?

Posted by MarinaGal (My Page) on

I am trying to select a hood insert - will be for custom wood hood on an outside wall - can be vented directly outside that wall with an internal blower. Narrowed it down to Best and Modernaire. The appliance dealer mentioned the Best iQ insert with internal blower which apparently reduces noise by "monitoring static back pressure the first time you turn on the hood" and then adjusts the fan speed for quieter operation. Has anyone heard or has experience the iQ inserts? So far, I can't find reviews on line - but would like to know if this hood has a tolerable noise level. Thanks!

Bumping this thread to see if anyone has any information, (good or bad) on the Best IQ range hood inserts.I am looking at the 1200 CFM version to go over a Capital rangetop with 6 burners and a grill.
