Range hood recommendations for tight Canadian house

Patrick Walshe | Posted in Mechanicals on

Any recommendations for budget island range hood that sucks 200 – 250 CFM or so that’s available within Canada? I see some for $650- $850 here but in the US I’ve noticed some for $400 or so from AKDY. Any BC dealers? Most island range hoods would likely create a small tornado if there was any smoke with 750 CFM or more but I imagine with 6 speeds maybe one could find a less breezy setting. But why pay for all that extra power and wasted heat?
