Range hood inserts or liners are the perfect companions for your custom hood. Range hood inserts from Proline are available in 15”, 18”, and 21” depths to accommodate nearly every kitchen design.
An insert range hood fits inside your custom hood or custom cabinetry. It pulls greasy kitchen air and moves it to the outside. Most insert range hoods duct to the outside.
You need a range hood insert that is at least four inches larger than your kitchen range. For example, if you have a 36” range, buy a 40” insert. Or, you can buy a 46” insert – one size larger. Smaller inserts won’t capture all the heavy grease and cooking exhaust.
To choose a range hood insert, first consider the size and CFM. Be sure to measure the opening in your custom hood before making a purchase. Also, buy an insert that pulls at least 600 CFM of air to keep your kitchen air clean and fresh. Buy a variable speed insert for the most versatility in your kitchen. Then you can cook whatever you like.
There are two types of range hood inserts: ducted and ductless. Most range hood inserts are ducted, but you can find some ductless inserts from big box stores. For the most durable and powerful fan, buy a ducted insert.
