On Board or Off Board Fan Motor
Hush rangehoods have the advantage of almost totally silent operation. The fan motor is “Off Board” which means that it is located in the ceiling cavity. In apartments or homes without a space above the ceiling Quiet Air rangehoods cannot be used. The Air Friendly
On Board range is designed for all installation applications.
Size and design
Try to always select a rangehood that is at least as wide as your cooktop. Your cooking style should be considered, for example stir frying requires a higher rate of air extraction.
Stainless steel baffle filters
This design of filter not only looks good but they catch and hold the moisture in the air stopping it dripping back into your cooking. They are ideal for use over induction cooktops.
LED lights have extremely low electricity consumption and are very durable. They are not only perfect for illuminating the cooking process but they provide subtle lighting of the kitchen.
It’s important that your rangehood has the right ducting to allow the exhaust to be efficiently expelled to the outside. Your choice of ducting impacts the noise of the rangehood and how well it operates.
Solid or semi rigid ducting works best but can be harder to install. We don’t recommend non laminated foil ducting as it leads to increases in noise and losses in efficiency. We supply laminated flexible ducting for the Quiet Air rangehoods.
When a rangehood is installed in recirculating mode (which means it is not ducted to the outside) carbon filters are used to remove cooking odours. The carbon filters need to be replaced on a regular basis. Quiet Air rangehoods cannot be recirculated.
