Cubic feet per minute (measuring how much air is being pull).

Clean the blower casing, oil tube, and oil pan automatically with one push of a button. We encourage our customers to clean the hood weekly so that it will stay clean and have a trouble-free performance during its lifespan.

It’s not necessary for the auto-clean model. The blower casing and oil pan collect the most oil. If auto-clean is being used as recommended, there is no need to remove the parts for cleaning. The fan blade is coated and will repel excess oil to the oil pan and will flush out when the auto-clean feature is used. If you like to remove the parts to clean, we have the EZ model, which is easy to take apart and clean.

If you cook every day, we recommended you cleaning twice a week.

Yes, all of our hoods are approved by either UL or CSA.

1. Better suction (the screen on filtered hoods will clog gradually and reduce suction).

2. Quieter than a filtered hood with a much higher CFM.

We recommend turning on the hood when the stove is on because even when simmering, there is oil, steam, and odor coming out of the pot. Having the hood on while cooking will also reduce the temperature of the cooking area and will prolong the lifespan of the hood.

Colors are enamel materials that are easier to clean. S/S will last longer and is rust-resistant.

The noise level depends on many factors such as the size and length of the duct, turns, temperature, and altitude.

The halogen bulb can be removed by hand or by rubber suction by turning the bulbs counterclockwise (please use caution and do not touch the bulb while it’s hot). The halogen bulb can be purchased at our retail showroom or any hardware store.

Our deflector offers three advantages: it has more suction coverage, it's easier to clean, and has a nice appearance. Our deflector board is made out of NANO technology and makes oil hard to stick to the surface and makes cleaning easy.

After each use, dispense the dirty water and leave a small amount of clean water in the cup. This will reduce the temperature and prolong the life of the cup.

We found that brushing it immediately with a small amount of all-purpose 409 and Powder cleaner will normally do the job.

1. Good chance the screen on the side wall cap is dirty (needs to be cleaned or removed).
2. Damper not opening all the way.
3. Grease built up needs cleaning.

  • Under Cabinet range hoods are mounted to the bottom of a wall cabinet.
  • Wall-mounted range hoods are attached above the stove to a wall without cabinets.
  • Island range hoods are mounted to the ceiling.
Both are fine as long as it’s done by a qualifying electrician.
We recommend using a damper in extremely hot or cold weather areas. Noise level will increase when damper is installed. Damper is used to prevent hot/cold air coming in or out of the house when the hood is not in use.

It is used to connect the top of our hood to the duct. It makes a perfect seal to ensure that there are no air or water leaks.

The California code requires a galvanized pipe to be used with new construction and remodeling. A galvanized pipe is heat resistant, has a longer life span and smooth airflow, and is quieter than a flex pipe.

We recommend using a hood that is the same size as the cabinet since having a gap on either side of the hood will result in oil and dirt collecting over time, making it very hard to clean.
