We have been reviewing range hoods for the past three years. In our most recent evaluation, we compared seven brands to determine which one offered the best ventilation designs, fan power, aesthetics, costs and noise levels. Our research helped us determine that Broan is the best brand overall since it offers the widest selection of products, from simple, mid-priced options to fancier more expensive styles. This brand offers powerful and reliable fans for vented, non-vented and convertible designs. If you want a more economical option, Broan's sister company, NuTone, offers lower-priced designs that are also reliable.
