About Range Hoods


Range Hoods

New homes are now built much tighter in order to increase energy efficiency. The down side of this development is that it can also significantly increase levels of indoor pollution, since it results in decreased airflow. Agencies and organizations such as the EPA and the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) have identified the kitchen as the key source of indoor air pollution for which they have established the range hood to be the most effective combatant. BROAN Range Hoods are designed to quickly capture pollution at the source and exhaust it outdoors rather than throughout the home. Additionally, BROAN Range Hoods work hard to protect the home’s interior against the damaging effects of heat, humidity and airborne grease; saving time, labor and money.

Because of over 80 years of dedication to excellence, BROAN has become the name that customers trust for residential kitchen ventilation solutions in North America. With nearly 50 different designs in various finishes and sizes, there is a model to meet every need and price point, from European-style chimney hoods to simple under-cabinet hoods. And whether its commercial level performance or ENERGY STAR® efficiency that is desired, BROAN has the product solution to match. Every model is HVI certified to guarantee our performance claims are accurate, so that our customers can breathe easy and choose with confidence.

Certified Power – the right choice

Air purification is critical in removing smoke, oil fumes and odors from the kitchen. It requires powerful air moving systems to do the job. BROAN hoods offer a wide range of performance choices that all have two things in common; high pressure designs that deliver more air flow under all conditions, and certified HVI performance. No other brand compares to BROAN when it comes to both options and quality of design.

Quiet by design

Very often, the kitchen is the central location of the home. It’s where people gather at parties–it’s where families sit down to dinner–it’s where conversations take place. That said, BROAN incorporates Quiet Features in every hood model, making them the quietest in their class, along with the option of an external blower that takes the noise outside. Additionally, multi-speed control allows the user to adjust the level of operation. To ensure quiet operation, HVI certifies the sound level on each model. Some models operate so quietly at normal speed, the sound is practically inaudible.

Easy Installation

Easy installation is a top priority when it comes to the design of BROAN products. Most models can be installed in under 2 hours by the average do-it-yourselfer. It starts with design and engineering that aims to simplify, and decrease the number of steps, so that most installations can be handled by one person. Smart design is followed by providing the right equipment along with the necessary high quality hardware, accessories and simple, yet precise instructions to ensure success. Additionally, BROAN has the best Technical Support staff in the industry, on hand to help you with any questions.

The BROAN Advantage

For the most choices in kitchen ventilation style and performance, BROAN is the place. BROAN, and BROAN Elite lines feature over 25 unique and assorted product styles to provide just the perfect one for your home. You will find everything from bold designs that allow the hood to be the focal point to modern designs that will work in harmony within your kitchen concept. BROAN even offers models that do their job without being seen at all.

Wide Assortment of Accessories

Hood installations can vary greatly, which is why BROAN offers a wide variety of accessories to help facilitate most any requirement. From extension flues for chimney hoods to non-duct kits and filters (allowing recirculation of the hood exhaust when venting outdoors is not possible), BROAN accessories are made to meet the special needs of special installations.

The UL® (Underwriters Laboratory) Mark on a BROAN® product means the UL has tested and evaluated representative sample of that product and determined that they meet UL requirements, thereby providing peace of mind to purchasers, installers and users of the product.
