Some of the top rated range hood brands as of 2015 include Broan, Z Line and Firebird, according to Top10BestPro. Some of the important factors to consider when choosing a range hood include energy efficiency, easy installation, durability and price.
The Broan 413004 comes with a non-ducted filter, and is especially affordable considering its features. The filter works particularly well for getting rid of smoke, bad odors and other unwanted materials. It has an easy to use system that gives the user more control over their kitchen environment. The unit also helps improve air circulation in the kitchen using its charcoal product technology.
The Z Line ZLKB36 is powerful and sleek. The unit is made of stainless steel and is durable and efficient. Some of the main features include directional lighting, which makes it more comfortable and safe to use. The wall mount range is relatively easy to install and requires little maintenance. It does, however, require regular cleaning to keep it in the best condition.
Finally, the Firebird European Style Range Hood provides great airflow and is easy to install. The product has a good warranty and is relatively easy to maintain. The adjustable height system makes it more convenient to use for a kitchen of any size or style. The downside, however, is that the unit can be costly, although it makes up for this in functionality, features and convenience.
