    Rated 4 out of 5 by very basic product but does what i need the hood vent is perfect for what I use it for. I have no problems with this hood and it has been working just fine. February 14, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall There were installation pieces missing from two different boxes Overall: quite pleased with this unit. Installation: one person and very easy. Operation: lighting is good, odour, smoke, etc removal works very well. Cons: would be nice to have the capability to remote the switching for the unit. Definitely recommend this unit! February 7, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by It works well but... Just ordered our third vent. It works well and installs easy enough but after a few years( after monthly cleaning) the grease drips off the motor. Hard to keep clean. Also after 2 years it starts to squeak. So here we are ordering number three. I think were going to see if we can find something else that will fit into our space that's more easy to maintain and hopefully will last longer. Its getting old popping the canopy off and reinstalling. As always the devil is in the details. It does work well just has a short "shelf life" . November 20, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features. We haven't had this product very long but so far we are enjoying it. September 7, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value I chose this system over others that were much more expensive. Air flow is very good and sound levels are acceptable. The rated light wattage was not very high, but by substituting CFL lights, I could stay within the wattage limitations and increase the light output. We've had this in operation for two months now and we are very satisfied. September 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install - worry free since I installed The product is flawless. Too often products have some hidden issue with installation. Not so! Instructions and diagrams were clear and concise! March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This product does an overall good job. Cons 1.) The Plastic attachment clips on the filter housing seem cheap. I am concerned that after years of heat and cool from being used they may break and will not allow me to reinstall the filter after cleaning. 2.) From and ergonomically standpoint the on and off switch’s for both the fan and light are difficult to find. 3.) Very difficult to install the filter housing. I actually had the filter housing fall onto the stovetop while in use. Pros 1.) Seams to pull all of the heat and condensation from above the stovetop. 2.) Lights are easy to change out when they go out. 3.) The lighting is sufficient and located correctly. March 17, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally a real exhaust fan This works great! Finally an exhaust that does not just blow the steam around. You can even see it sucking the steam toward it. Mine has an angled duct going outside and still works great. It was installed in a new construction home so I cannot speak to ease of installation but I did not hear any complaints from builder that it was a problem. March 12, 2014

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 kitchen ventilation system. The PM250 uses 7 inch duct work and we would suggest installing a roof or wall cap (where the duct work exits the house) that includes a damper. You can also add a damper in-line with the duct work. We have two models that will match up with 7 inch duct. The part numbers are 97010792 or 97018803. The latter offers a sound dampening foam. The damper can be ordered from our website under the Shop for Parts link or by contacting Customer Service at 800-558-1711.

    Will the PM390 handle a 36" gas cooktop at 55K BTUs safely?

     on PM390
    I am looking to put a hood vent over a gas cooktop. I assume 36" requires 300CFM, but I have also seen info on this site that leads me to think a PM390 may not meet the needs. I intend to vent above the unit into the kitchen, and build a cabinet to hide this unit. I am assuming I need the kit to help house this.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM390 kitchen exhaust system power unit. You do need some sort of custom hood to install the PM390. The PM390 is listed as having 390 CFM. The requirements for a kitchen exhaust fan would be 1 CFM for every 100 BTU. In your case you would want something with a minimum of 550 CFM.
