Vent Hood Comparison Chart

Vent hoods can be very technical, and deciding which one is best for your needs can sometimes be very confusing. For this reason, we've taken our top 7 outdoor vent hood brands and compiled all of the important details of each hood, into one easy-to-read chart. For comparison purposes, we choose the 42-inch wide hood, which is the most popular size or the most comparable size if a 42-inch was not available.

If you're not sure what to look for when shopping for a vent hood, or just want some more explanation of what each of the things below means, head over to our Vent Hood Buying Guide.
