Choosing a vent hood for your kitchen starts with style and how much air movement you need over your cooking surface. For an open concept kitchen consider a chimney style hood, like Broan’s EW5630SS. This vent hood features an elegant European curved glass design and is finished in brushed stainless steel. Housed within the hood is a powerful 500 cfm internal blower. As a general rule, you want to make sure your blower matches the BTU output of your range. The EW5630SS includes bright dual halogen lighting with three intesity settings. The hood also has three speed electronic push controls and quick-release aluminum mesh filters for easy cleaning. The telescopic flue on this chimney style vent hood accommodates ceiling height 8 to 9 feet. If you have taller ceilings, flue extensions are available and are matched to the shape, style and color of your hood. Broan also offers either an in-line blower or exterior blower option. Exterior blowers can be roof or wall mounted, depending on your preferences or to best suit your ducting requirements. In-line blower perform quietly and mount in the attic space above your kitchen. Broan’s Elite EW56 comes in 30″ and 36″ widths.
