Zephyr AK2500 Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy controls ruin a decent hood Purchased this hood based on the Zephyr brand and reviews posted here. Received the unit and the controls did not work. Contacted Zephyr and had to have a service visit to replace the logic board that controls the fan/lights. When I saw the unit I realized the problem. The buttons that get depressed are very small and easily become stuck. That board was replaced and the hood worked great for 3 weeks. Now the light control does not respond! I have another call into Zephyr for yet another replacement board. As the warranty only goes for the first year, I am very nervous about what will happen at that point. Be very cautious about purchasing this hood and using the controls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thing We Ever Did We originally had a very expensive microwave/convection oven over our range that had an integrated range fan that vented outside. The rating of the fan was somewhere around 250 CFM and when it was installed we figured (and were told) that this would be plenty. Boy, were we wrong. You could smell odors from the kitchen all the time. For this reason alone we decided to install a range hood. We shopped the home improvement stores and looked a several other brands, but none were compatible to the Zephyr as far as product design or ratings. Ordering was easy and delivery was as promised. Not a problem at all. Installation was fairly easy, but I would recommend a helper. Holding the hood in place to install screws was not easy. I finally figured out that using a piece of wood to hold the back of the hood up against the cabinets while I placed screws in the front worked out well. I also had some adjustment with existing ducting, but I knew ahead of time this would be a problem. A new install without the ducting in place it would not be so difficult. The Zephyr AK2500 is, without a doubt, the best thing we ever did. The look is very appealing and the overall product is wonderful. Because of the increased fan capacity and type of fan, there are no longer any cooking odors - none - in the home. My wife can fry onions on the cooktop and and two feet away you can't even tell. Fan noise is acceptable. Less noise than the previous microwave oven and fan by far. The lighting is perfect, something my wife always complained about. Now she can see everything on the range top. I could go on, but I think it is enough to say that I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a quality range hood. Nothing in the home improvement stores will compare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Range Hood This range hood is very well made and well packaged for shipping. Because of the design it is a little more work to install. The extra install time is worth it because it looks great and it really moves air, even on the lower settings. On the highest setting it will pull smoke from 18 inches in front of the hood (18 inches below the bottom of the hood). The smoke moves at a 45 degree angle into the hood and none escapes. I can use the deep fryer on the counter beside the stove and all the steam is pulled into the hood. Compared to my old (cheap) hood, no comparison. It is quiet on low and about the same as the old hood on high (but it actually accomplishes something, unlike the old hood)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome hood...awesome company This hood is wonderful. It has an amazing draw, even on the first setting! Smoke could actually go above the hood and in a matter of 3-5 seconds it would be sucked down and under the hood and out. The noise level is great as well. It's not very loud and the sound that is does make is very deep and not as annoying as cheaper hoods. Very stylish as well. I would reccomend this item over and over. My experiance with ventingdirect.com has been excellent too. The people are couteous and knowledgeable when I called, and they were prompt and kind with email. Shipping was fast too! A+++++ Thanks alot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zephyr Hood AK2500S What can I say - service was incredible. We had a problem with the first hood (UPS dented the back). We contacted VentingDirect on a Saturday and the customer service rep was so professional, apologetic and handled the return and new shipment in minutes. It was such a wonderful experience. The hood is the most fantastic hood that I have ever used. It is not only functional but it is beautiful. The CFM's are unbelievable - we vented to the outside and when it is on high, it blows the leaves from the deck. I would recommend VentingDirect and Zephyr to all my friends and acquaintances. Top Notch - Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It sucks......but that is what it is made to do. I received this hood knowing that the daunting task of runnning the ventilation duct had to come before I could see how well it worked. Many hours of drilling, hammering, and chiseling away at 2 layers of brick later, I was able to look at the install of the hood. Installation is quick and easy. After the install, the button did not do what they were supposed to. Talk about frustrated! All is well though. I called Zepyr and described the problem. The gentleman helping me decided it was the circuit board and sent a new one to the nearest authorized repair tech and it was repaired within a few days. So, the hood works great. The lighting is nice and bright, the fans suck, and I like the dimmable lights and delay functions. Good hood for a nice price. Construction is durable and i think it should last a long time. For those of you who might be looking at noise levels, it is moderate level of noise on high. I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased But Difficult to Install We bought it to replace an underpowered microwave hood, partly because the smoke alarm would go off almost every time we used the oven. Now that it is up, it is great. Installation was tricky, though. The holes/screws that mount it to the underside of the cabinets are hard to get to and impractical to use while supporting the hood. We used longer bolts to extend down from the top with washers and wingnuts instead. Also, the rectangular vent outlet was off the wall too far so we needed to make duct adapters to make it fit our old vent location. Now that it's up - it works great. Powerful and not too loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality and High Performance Fan Just recently remodeled my kitchen and high on my list was a high performance vent hood. Did some research and found great reviews on this fan. I liked the features (particularly self cleaning). Had it professionally installed and my contractor said it was the best quality fan he had ever seen. And the performance is fabulous - 3 different speeds, two light levels. Even on low speed you can see the fan pulling the steam, smoke, etc up to the fan. Cooking odors are gone immediately. Well worth every dollar! Just did the first cleaning and it was a breeze. Highly recommend it.

  • Is horizontal duct out of the wall included?

    A. The Zephyr AK2500 does not include any ducting.

  • How does it collect the grease and how is it cleaned?

    A. During cooking, as the Zephyr AK2500 Range Hood is running, grease is pulled into the range through the vents into donut shaped pans and stored. To clean out the grease, spray cleaning solution such as 409 into the vents while the range is running. This will liquify the grease which runs into small grease trap cups located directly beneath the vents. These cups can then be emptied for simple disposal of grease. The cleaning process takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Can you use the lights with the fan off?

    A. The Zephyr AK2500 has lights that can be used without the fan being on.

  • How do you remove the grease trap cups?

    A.

    The Zephyr AK2500 has trap cups held in by a retainer clip.

  • Is that too hard to install it by ourself?

    A. The Zephyr AK2500 is a relatively easy unit to install.

  • I need the little pans that catch the grease.

    A. The residue cups for the Zephyr AK2500 are part number 56160003 and can be purchased from the manufacturer at 1.888.880.8368.

  • What is the sones rating?

    A.

    The Zephyr AK2500 sones noise level is 5.5 when on high speed.

  • What is the total depth of the AK2500? The measurement of 15 23/32" appears to be only to the start of the angled front panel.

    A.
