Air King PRC8R Reviews
Rated 5 out of
Great Roof Cap for High CFM Range HoodsVERY well-made and very well sealed around all edges. Exhaust door opens and closes easily and rests along foam rubber when closed. Bird screen is an important feature and it's attached well.
Packed and shipped carefully; flashing edges were not bent. Good instructions. Installs easily. I'm using it to vent an undercabinet range hood that exhausts a max of 570 CFM, so I needed no less than the 8".
I first looked at a roof cap made by the maker of my range hood, but it just covers a hole in the roof! I would have to run a non-flexible duct through the roof, secure it, cut it angled to the roof pitch, and seal the gap between the duct and the roof cutout. Too much work.
I chose the Air King mostly because its made with a built-in 8" round duct underneath which protrudes through the roof enough that you can easily attach 8" inch ductwork (flexible or not) from inside the attic.

Great roof ventThis vent came packed very well. It was in a box and this box was in another box surrounded by paper packing. I had read a review from an Amazon merchant where the reviewer said the same roof vent came poorly packaged and with the corners bent. This unit came in perfect condition. The bird screen and flap door are good quality and should last for years. I installed the vent today with no problems. There is a 2 inch lip on the bottom to attach an 8inch vent duct. My over range hood is now complete.
