Are Westinghouse rangehoods worth the money?

Westinghouse serves a wide selection of rangehoods to suit different households, varying in size, styles and installation types. The different types of rangehoods include fixed, integrated under cupboard, slide-out and wall-mounted canopy. Retail prices generally start from $149, but can reach up to $1,099.

Many of the rangehoods available from Westinghouse can be used as a ducted rangehood. This is where the ducting is attached to a rangehood vent outlet and directs the extracted air from the kitchen to the outside of the home. But if it’s not possible to duct a rangehood because you don’t have an external vent or ducting, there are plenty of alternative models. Instead, non-ducted rangehoods extract the smoke and send it through the filters before recirculating the now clean air back into the room. Plus, there’s a number of rangehoods which allow for either method so you can choose how you want to install the appliance.
