HVI Releases New Range Hood Brochure For Consumers

Ventilation is important to any kitchen, but for consumers it can be confusing when faced with so many choices while shopping for the right kitchen ventilation system. To help, the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) has released a new brochure, "Range Hoods, A Consumer Guide." The brochure covers the definition and purpose of range hoods, why they are necessary, and what to look for when purchasing a range hood.  "Range Hoods, A Consumer Guide," outlines factors that should be taken into consideration when looking for a range hood, which include function, form and performance. The brochure also details how to know if the range hood purchased will perform to the manufacturer's claim.

When purchasing a range hood, it is important to look for the HVI Certified label. The HVI Certified label provides the assurance that the product was tested and certified to meet industry standards, will perform as promised, and when installed properly, will guarantee appropriate ventilation is achieved to maximize indoor air quality.

To order the "Range Hoods, A Consumer Guide" brochures, e-mail HVI at or call 847/526-2010. The brochure is also available for download in the publications section of the HVI Resource Library on the HVI website at A new consumer brochure will also be available on Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) and Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) later this spring.

The Home Ventilating Institute (HVI), founded in 1955, is a nonprofit association of the manufacturers of home ventilating products. Through a Certified Ratings Program, HVI provides a voluntary means for residential ventilation manufacturers to report comparable and creditable product performance information based upon uniformly applied testing standards and procedures performed by independent laboratories.

Today, HVI represents manufacturers from the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe, producing the majority of the residential ventilation products sold in North America.
