  • The AP1 series is part of BROAN's newest pro-style undercabinet hood collection, uniting stylish appearance with tremendous value. The deep 9 in. height provides excellent capture of cooking grease and odor, whether vented to the exterior, or installed to recirculate air through optional charcoal filters. Optional non-duct recirculation kit available with charcoal filters sold separately.

    • Concealed variable speed control with last setting memory means the hood is set for the next time you cook your favorite dish
    • 440 CFM at 7.0 Sones on high setting, 120 CFM at 0.5 Sones on low setting
    • Two halogen lamps (designed for bulbs up to 50 W, GU10 bulbs purchase separately) light up the cooktop and surrounding area. Two-level light control gives you unmatched visibility
    • Mesh grease filters with Antimicrobial Protection are dishwasher-safe. The coating inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria and protects the filter so it stays cleaner in between cleanings. Your kitchen stays fresher longer
    • This hood is adaptable to recirculation applications with the addition of Optional Non-Duct Recirculation Kit NDK35830BL for installations where ducting to the exterior is not possible
    • Heat Sentry™ is a smart feature that detects excessive heat and adjusts speed to high automatically to prolong product life
    • Non-Duct Filter 88F required for non-ducted installations, purchased separately

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good, functional unit, but not for tall people. This stainless steel hood with variable-speed fan and low-high light performs quite well. It seems solidly built and is an attractive addition to a functional kitchen. However -- and this is an important point -- engineering principles regarding air flow determine the height of the unit above the cooking surface. As a result, this unit is installed typically at a height of about 5 feet 10 inches. This means that anyone over 5' 9" sooner or later will bang their head (ouch!) on the corner of the unit. Additionally, until they get familiar with the fan and light controls, tall people will need to slouch down to locate the controls. Thus, my recommendation to purchase this hood is conditional on how tall you are.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Looking Works GREAT This was a replacement for original range hood 18 Years old. This had a good CFM and looks great. Was NOT difficult to instal. It works GREAT (must open a window to allow air into kitchen so it can exhaust out) a relative in heating and air conditioning business says THAT IS MANDATORY

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced over the range microwave with range hood Replaced over the range microwave with this range hood. Easy to order. Quickly shipped and arrived. Range hood fan is very quite on lower speeds which still move a lot of air. Great lighting with two 50w halogen MR16 bulbs. As to install, READ the directions and handle the hood as cautioned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very beautiful, clean, modern look - miles apart from the normal sloped hoods. I brought this hood because I wanted something with a clean, modern anmd different and artistic look. This was the only one I could find (other than Tamburo - twice as expensive) that did not look like the 99% other metal range hoods available in the market. I am very happy with the looks, it matches the rest of my stainless steel kitchen appliances. It performs very well and is easy to clean., Myself and my husband installed it in less than one hours. This hood makes all my guests ask where did you buy it, we have never seen anything looking this nice in stainless steel.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good air flow The hood fan is effective at removing steam. However, it sticks out quite a bit causing problems when working at the stove. The corners are sharp and can give you good knock on the head if you aren't careful. The halogen lights sometimes don't work due to loss of contact in the sockets. I've had one of the lights fall out of the socket completely several times!

    Can this be mounted under a 15" deep cabinet?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on the model AP130BL range hood. The AP130BL is designed to be mounted underneath a standard 12 inch deep cabinet. You can install it under a 15 inch cabinet, but you would probably want to move it forward away from the wall. You would want to find something to fill in the gap behind the hood to help protect the cabinet. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    What is the difference between the AP series and the RP series hoods?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on the AP and RP series range hoods. The AP has a special coating and antimicrobial protection on the filters that the RP does not. The AP has a variable speed control where the RP has a two speed control. The AP has a non-duct recirculation kit available and the RP does not.

    Is the AP130 more energy efficient than the RP130? What is the main difference between the two?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question. The current consumption on both of these models is 1.9 amps; therefore the energy usage is the same. The main differences are that the RP1 incorporates a 2 speed rocker switch, where the AP1 has a variable speed control. The AP1 is also capable of having a non-duct kit installed on it, where as the RP1 is not.

    I have a client who needs a ductless vent hood but also wants the hood to be shrouded with wood. Is this a possibility with this unit ?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on the Broan model AP130BL range hood. The AP1 is convertible to non-ducted with the purchase of the NDK358 non-ducted kit. This model could not be installed up, inside a custom-made range hood. The non-ducted kit includes the vents that are installed on top of the vent hood. This would recirculate the air through the filters and back out the vents in the front of the hood. It would not be able to operate properly in an enclosed hood. You need to look at a power module or custom hood insert that is suitable for non-ducted applications. You will still need to make somewhere for the air to blow back out into the room. Please contact Technical Support with further questions at 800-637-1453.
