Zephyr AK1200 Reviews
Rated 4 out of
Good Replacement PurchaseMy wife and I needed to do something about our old underperforming and inexpensive NuTone range hood.
The NuTone wasn?t performing well because it wasn?t pulling out fumes very well. Our house is small and occasionally the smoke detector in the hallway would go off. We needed to open windows and/or doors to cross ventilate the kitchen in order to stop the fumes from moving throughout our house.
Shopping around we found the Breeze II, Zephyr AK1200, at Venting Direct. This hood looked like it was designed as a replacement to fit into the spot our old one occupied and the CFM rating was much higher than the one we had.
We purchased it and installed it ourselves. It went in with minimum additional work. It performs well and it is able to remove all the fumes. We no longer have to cross ventilate and our smoke detector doesn?t go off anymore. In addition, it?s a lot quieter than our old one, it looks better and its lighting is great.
It was an good choice to replace our old underperforming range hood.

Pretty GoodI ordered this for a client looking for an exhaust hood for her vacation rental. She is very happy with the CFM's, functions, and aesthetics. It cost me about six hours of the electrician's time to snake a new dedicated electrical line to the new hood from the basement. The duct work was already set up.
Pro: For the money and the CFM's, this is about as good as it gets. I'd recommend.
Con: Super Quiet is advertised, but when the unit is on high, it is not. However, you can still have a conversation. On low, the unit is reasonably quiet.

Excellent ProductI'm completely satisfied with the quality of this hood. On a limited budget, but still interested in quality, research indicated that Zephyr were among the best reasonably priced units. The Ak 1200 fit my needs perfectly. I looks sleek and well made in it's space and is a fine accent to our remodeling. It is definately several steps above comparably priced units at some big market retailers. I would highly recommend this item with a small exception that the control buttons, being under the edge of the hood, take some practice to get used ot their location without bending over (perhaps too low if the range is on!) Also, be sure you pick the one you want and in the right size because Zephyr charges a 20% restocking fee. I did make that mistake and still recommend Zephyr.

this is a good choiceSize was a factor for me, and this hood had the slimmest height of this style.
Ultra quiet is not correct though, it does not make racket like all my prior hoods, but I hoped for a whisper sound when it's on low. It does draw air very affectively, and even better when I open the opposite window an inch, because the house is pretty tight.
I'm short, so I am using 25 watt bulbs instead of 40 because they were right in my eyes, and 25 is plenty bright enough. Lots of buttons give every choice of fan speed and brightness. In the same instance I would order this fan again :)

excellent productI have used the product for three months.This hood ventilator has been satisfied my need. When I opened the box after the machine arrival, I fixed flappy metal sheets with tapes in order to cut down vibration also noise. This was my assumption that there would be noise happen there. Right now there is little noise even I switch on high speed. It works very well.

Below AverageAlthough Venting Direct processed my order quickly and efficiently, the product did not deliver. I had this Zephyr installed professionally according to instructions, yet it is loud (as loud as the $89 Broan) and does not remove steam never mind odors. Very disappointing.
