For a quieter kitchen, choose a hood with a lower decibel (dB) rating. Our hoods range between 50 and 65dB. For comparison, normal kitchen chit chat measures 62dB and a kettle boils at 42dB.
For extractor hoods, the duct design can make all the difference. So for a quieter hood, you should think about the bends, length, cross-section and material of the ducting.
But remember, minimum extraction rate is more important than volume. A quiet hood without enough power is as good as a quiet vacuum that doesn’t suck up dust.
