Your range hood must handle your cooking style and the type of appliance beneath it, whether gas or electric. Steam and smoke from high-heat cooking has to be contained. Whether your range hood is a focal point in your kitchen, or concealed in custom cabinetry, trust Broan—the leader in residential ventilation—to provide performance-matched solutions.
There are many different types of range hoods to best suit your cooking
of style and installation needs. With a variety of design options, you’ll find a perfect match to your appliances, cabinetry and cooking style. Let’s talk range hood types.
Under-cabinet range hoods deliver excellent ventilation performance while preserving precious cabinet space. While they are the most popular range hood type on the market, Broan turns traditional design expectation upside down. Beautiful styles—in a variety of appliance-matching finishes—are paired with effective ventilation capabilities. Best of all, you’ll find the combination you need for the way you cook at an attractive price point.
Some of our most visually striking range hoods—Chimney and Professional-style designs—mount to the wall and feature exposed flues or soffits. Most of these range hoods can be configured for both ducted or recirculating operation. Some can be used with powerful external blower options to handle the BTU output of the range below. With a broad selection available, you’ll find a perfect complement to the style of your range.
Today’s kitchen island is hub of activity from food prep to cooking to casual dining. And it’s often the entertainment hub as well. When your cooktop is in the center of it all, Broan gives you ventilation options that stand out or hide away. Choose chimney-style hoods suspended elegantly above the range, professional style hoods with broad soffits that help divide the space or downdraft ventilation that rises when you need it and hides beneath the counter when you don’t.
Think about having a powerful range hood that’s there when you need it and hidden when you don’t. Downdraft range hoods are perfect for islands or peninsula installations, providing the right amount of ventilation—literally at the push of a button. If you love an unobstructed view through your open kitchen, consider a hood that rises when needed, and retracts when not in use.
Think of a built-in power pack as a gift box without the wrapping paper. You get the features and performance you need but you choose what surrounds it. With a power pack, your cabinetry, tile work or other aesthetic preferences help your hood blend in with your kitchen’s unique design features. Insert a power pack to achieve all the benefits of powerful ventilation while maintaining full design control.
Broan manufactures range hoods suitable for outdoor installation when used in partially protected environments such as screened-in lanais or covered patios. They make all the difference, helping keep these spaces from filling with smoke and cooking effluents. Deep, robust designs handle high heat confidently, professional-style stainless steel baffle filters clean up easily, and halogen lighting illuminates the cooktop or grill brilliantly.
