    QSE130SS - Is a damper avail./req'd for the rectangular duct?

    I see in the specification that no damper is included with the unit, but under Accessories a round damper is available.

    Is there a rectangular damper available? If not, is it because of this unit or because it is not used for the rectangular duct?

    Thank you for your question on the model QSE130SS range hood. The QSE130SS has a 3-1/4” x 10” rectangular damper duct assembly included with the unit. It is mounted underneath the hood on the left side for shipping purposes. The installation instructions show where it is mounted. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Do you offer any range hood that is ENERGY STAR qualified and allows use of LEDs?

    Customer avatar

    I do not want to use a fluorescent lamp above my cooktop, due to the mercury in these bulbs, nor a halogen bulb, given their inefficiency. Do you offer any ENERGY STAR qualified range hood (externally vented) that will allow use of LED lamps instead of halogen or fluorescent?

    I have one of your older models and I replaced halogen with LED PAR20 bulbs and they work great.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on range hoods. The only hood we currently manufacture with an LED light is the model number CBX130SS. This model does not offer the Energy Star rating.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the QSE130WW range hood. We do recommend 3 1/4" x 10" or 7" round duct on this hood. You may be able to use a 6" duct size if you are only going a very short distance, but the sound level may be increased. For more assistance, please contact Technical Support at 1-800-637-1453.

    Thank you for your question on the model QSE130WW range hood. The QSE130WW range hood can only be installed as a ducted unit. It can be ducted either horizontally or vertically with 3-1/4” x 10” duct work or vertically with 7” duct work. It cannot be installed as a non-ducted unit.
