Beauty and Brains: Broan®, NuTone® and Venmar®  release an Under-Cabinet Range Hood Product Line  with New Designs and Unsurpassed Performance

Drummondville (Quebec) – The range hood is one of the most important appliances in the kitchen. Not only is it vital to enhancing the design of the kitchen, but it also protects you, your family and dinner guests from the hazards of cooking by products like carbon monoxide, dangerous fumes, and bad odors.

The all new Broan®, NuTone®, Venmar® Bistro and Venmar® Chef range hood line is taking the under cabinet category completely over the top. It's a category reinvented, with the new CapturTM system that redefines performance. We asked consumers what they liked, what they wanted, and we built it. And, we added exclusive features so there is a fit for every kitchen which is exactly what the consumer expects.

The new under-cabinet range hoods, featuring the CapturTM System, allow consumers to enjoy new stylish, modern designs and advanced features, all while benefiting from the most effective capture of smoke and odors of any range hood or over-the-range microwave in its class.

"Our new under-cabinet range hood line allows to provide customers with the performance and the features they expect, all while keeping homeowner's style needs in mind," said Stephanie Lacroix, Global Category Manager, Kitchen Ventilation, for Venmar Ventilation ULC. "We created a whole new range hood line with better overall performance, quieter operation and great long-lasting LED lighting. The main reason consumers buy a range hood is to remove smoke and odors. The new range hoods, with the Captur™ System, deliver an average of 98.5% capture efficiency making them best-in-class at quietly removing smoke and odors."

The new range hood series is available in fresh new shapes and beautiful trendy colors like stainless steel, white and black, as well as a black stainless steel, pushing the design envelope of typical under-cabinet range hoods, yet complementing today's kitchen style needs. With a performance from 250 CFM up to 600 CFM, even the most serious cooks will appreciate the superior ventilation the series offers. Look for the models offering the option of ENERGY STAR rated efficiency. Additionally, the high-flow filtration design enhances grease capture, improves airflow and reduces noise. Several styles of filters are offered including a unique hybrid baffle style filter providing greater filtering efficiency than standard baffle filters.

The EZ-1 Installation system, which includes an exclusive bracket system designed specifically for the new range line, makes single-person installation easier than ever before because it eliminates the need to constantly hold onto the hood. Homeowners simply mount two brackets with no measuring or cutting, slide the hood on, make the connections and secure the hood with four screws. Installation takes less than half the time when compared to traditional methods.

State-of-the-art LED lighting system provides bright, full-surface cooktop lighting. Designed and tested to operate in the heat of cooking environments, the LED lighting lasts longer without dimming. The new line also offers models with the control options consumer demand, from simple switches to sophisticated touch and infrared solutions.
