Why do I need a vent hood?
Efficient ventilation is essential to maintaining
a healthy indoor environment. Not only does
kitchen ventilation exhaust heat and odors from
your home, but it helps control the moisture
levels in the air that can cause many types of
molds. All of these pollutants can end up on
your walls, upholstery and carpet—that’s why
choosing a Modern-Aire Ventilating canopy is
one of the most important decisions you can
make when designing your kitchen.
tIP
It’s always important to use your
ventilation, even in the shortest of
cooking times. Grease and pollutants
travel though the air and can reduce
the longevity of your cabinets, walls,
drapery and furniture in your home.

hoW do I care for my fIlters?
Modern-Aire Ventilating offers baffle filters as well as
mesh filters. Our baffle filters are dishwasher safe and
should be cleaned when grease buildup is visible. If
you are an avid cook, it may be necessary to clean your
filters more often than the occasional cook; however,
Modern-Aire Ventilating recommends that you place
your filters in the dishwasher at least once per month
to remove any buildup. Our aluminum mesh filters may
cause electrolysis in certain types of dishwashers, so we
recommend that you wash them with hot soapy water
and a sponge.

say, for example, that your ceilings are 9 feet high,
that’s 108 inches. You would then take the total
108 inches and deduct 36 inches for the height
of your range leaving you 72 inches. then you
will need to determine how high you would like
your range hood off of your cooktop. Modern-aire
recommends hanging your vent hood 30-34 inches
above the cooking surface for optimal performance, so let’s just say that you have decided to
hang your hood 33 inches above the cooking surface. You have 72 inches remaining, so deduct the
33 inches for the distance between your cooking
surface and the bottom of your range hood and
you now have a total hood height of 39 inches.

WHAT STYLE DO YOU WAnT? Choosing the right range hood can be like selecting the right outfit—it’s a
matter of personal preference and style. Your kitchen ventilation hood will likely be the focal point of your
entire kitchen, making it one of the most important design elements. when deciding on a design, take several
things into consideration including whether the rest of your home is traditional, contemporary or even rustic.
also, consider the elements of color throughout your home that can add or impact material possibilities for your

Modern-aire ventilating offers a complete line of power packages. all motors are centrifugal blower motors known for high performance, fire safety and quiet operation. Internal motors are available in 400, 600 and 1200 CFM increments. external motors for outside
roof or side wall mounting are available at 1000, 1400, and 1600 CFM. we also offer an 800 and 1200 CFM inline attic blower motor
which can be installed in line in your duct run and with the optional silencer, noise will not be a factor.
FIrE SAFE BAFFLE FILTEr SYSTEM
Filtering is the heart of your ventilation system. a filter system must remove all smoke, odor and contaminates to complete its job.
Modern-aire ventilating believes, like most major range hood manufacturers and restaurant supply houses, that the most efficient filtration system is the baffle filter. Unlike non-filtered range hoods, a baffle filter catches up to 96% of all grease and grease particles before
they ever enter the interior of the range hood, making cleanup a breeze. Unlike mesh filters, the air passing through a baffle filter is not
restricted, thus allowing a smoother and quieter transition. Perhaps the most important aspect of the baffle filter is that the baffles in the
filter are positioned to eliminate direct passage of flame through the filter thus making it one of the safest and most efficient filtration
systems available today. our dishwasher safe stainless steel baffle filter systems are manufactured of solid 300 series stainless steel. when
you look into a Modern-aire range hood, the beauty of a stainless steel baffle filter system enhances its looks. our baffle filters also have
rounded edges on the baffles to protect your fingers from sharp edges during removal. Handle other baffle filters and you will feel the
difference.
LIgHTIng SYSTEM
Illuminate your cooktop in style with Modern-aire ventilating. all of our vent hoods come standard with halogen lighting and a dimmer
switch that will adjust the lighting to your specific needs. Halogen lighting provides exceptional visibility and efficiency, making it the
lighting of choice. we use Par 20/50 watt floods which are easy to find and generally stocked at your local hardware store. Halogen light
bulbs have an average life of 2000 hours, that’s two times longer than conventional light bulbs. Halogen lights are energy-saving, saving
you up to 60% in energy costs versus incandescent lamps, while offering a whiter, brighter output of approximately 550 lumens. oh and
yes, the bulbs are included.
SWITCHIng
all Modern-aire ventilation units are controlled by a solid state variable speed motor control. this switch gives you an infinite amount
of choices over your ventilation needs. From a simmer to wok cooking, you set the motor to your precise ventilation requirement. all
lighting choices are controlled by a solid state dimmer switch. You can adjust the lighting from a safety night light to total illumination,
making the choice all yours. this combination of switching gives you total control of your ventilation and lighting needs .
LEAD TIME
we pride ourselves on our fast lead times. Most of our models can be completed from start to finish within four (4) weeks. our lead
times for custom manufactured hoods are the fastest in the industry.
WArrAnTY InFOrMATIOn
should any problems arise with your Modern-aire vent hood, please contact us directly and we
will be happy to assist you. our warranty consists of 2-years parts and 1-year labor from the
date of purchase. However, if you use one of our certified installers, Modern-aire will extend

UL LISTED
Modern-aire’s range hoods and liners are UL listed for both indoor and outdoor applications.
You may wonder why a UL listing is important. UL has strict guidelines in which they test
consumer products for safety and efficiency. UL is the trusted resource across the globe for
product safety, certification and compliance solutions. they have tested products for public
