Zephyr AK2100A Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective The Typhoon is a very effective range hood. It prevents any odors from leaving the range top area. It is somewhat noisy on high, 850 cfm, but is much quieter than the Broan unit it replaced that was only rated at 250 cfm. The only draw back, on the 30" model at least, is its installation. The fastening screws attaching the hood to the cabinet are very difficult to get at. Also the electical junction box to hook up power to the unit is located under a transformer and a tangle of wires and is impossible to get at without removing the transformer first. I added my own box to simplify the process. The instructions for the Typhoon do not show any of the clutter around the box and are clearly written for the Zephyr Hurricane range hood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good hood, but installation is a nightmare The venting function is good, but it is so difficult to install it! The product only provides 4 flimsy screws to hold the hood in place. It requires a 4-to 6" long small head Philip screw driver (which not easy to get.) Even if you can install it with these 4 screws perfectly, it does not give you a warm and fussy feeling that it will not drop off while you have something cooking on the stove. I used 2 rear screws with 2" bolts to secure the hood with the kitchen cabinet above instead. In summary, the installation is a nightmare for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet powerfull hood, but hard installation Pro: It is quiet for 850CMF hood. It look nice but simple. Cons: Due to two large fans, it is so difficult to mount the hood to the botom cabinet. The four holes for drews right at the 30" egde cabinet. Zephyr engineer shoule consider this problem. The electric wire is too short to reach the out let

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and quiet The Zephyr AK2100AS is a solid unit. On a low setting it is very quiet. On high it's moving a lot of air so it's going to be louder but the squirrel cage fans are very efficient. I had ducting issues due to the studs in my attic but the sales rep I talked with called the manufacturer to find out if my plan would work. (I had to transition from 7" to 3.25x10" then back to 7"). I received the unit and transition duct pieces within a few days. It is a challenge to install because you have to figure out most of it on your own. The directions give some of the dimensions and the location of wires but that's about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We've had the Zephyr model AK2100 for a little over a year and I love it! Was hesitant about the self cleaning feature but it is wonderful. Takes just a few minutes to take the cover off, spritz in some Fantastic and let it go. Very easy to keep clean. We had to install at the maximum height and it still very efficiently pulls the smoke and exhaust from both the oven and cooktop. Great lighting, although it seems like I am frequently replacing bulbs...but that could be the fault of the bulbs. Overall very happy with this range hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!!! Very clean and modern looking Finally! After searching around looking for good vac almost went with Viking hood and we are glade we found this hooded range. Our contractor finally install this so therefore I don't know how easy or difficult it is. I can't really say about the installation. This is very modern looking and quite unless you put it up to high speed. You can feel it suction standing across from the stove. Looks great stainless steel. For the price it's perfect. Glade I look around and read so many great reviews. That's why I have to put my review. Got a lot of compliments from friends and families. They all ask where we brought it from. Luv it great purchased!!! Happy customer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zephyr Typhoon We had this same model of hood (Typhoon) in our old house and loved it. When it came time to install a real hood in our new house we chose the same model again. The unit in the old house was very reliable, never once causing a problem. And it does an excellent job of clearing smoke, even when frying steaks in a cast-iron pan. Installing the new unit at this house was no big deal since we already had the ducting in place from the previous hood installation. We did it ourselves with no contractor help. Although, if you need ducting and electrical installed I recomment professional installation. The unit was shipped quite quickly and with no damage. We definitely recommend Zephyr range hoods.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Vent: This is a great vent. We installed it so the vent is horizontal through the wall. Even the lowest fan speed setting does well.. I would deserve 5 stars if the design engineers would acutal install one under a cabinet. It is extremely hard to get to the front two mounting screws to tighten them. The fan housings are in the way so you cannot get straight at the screw heads. Hey design engineers....move the front screw mounting key slots 1/4" to the sides of the unit and you will make 5 stars!

9 Questions from the Community
Loading nanoRep

What is the weight of the hood?

The Zephyr AK2100A weighs approximately 45 lbs.

This has 6 speeds. Can you tell me what the CFM is for each speed?

The Zephyr AK2100A has an even scaling on the CFM to each power level: (1) 275 CFM / (2) 370 CFM / (3) 467 CFM / (4) 660 CFM / (5) 755 CFM / (6) 850 CFM

Does the hood purchase include everything we need for installation? Or, do we need to buy a liner, clips, or any other pieces to have an up and running hood?

The Zephyr AK2100A comes with everything you need except for the actual duct work. Your installer will provide you with the ducting for your ventilation system.

Can I put a microwave above it?

The Zephyr AK2100A can be vented from the top or the rear. The rear vent utilizes a 3-1/4" x 10" duct. As long as venting through the rear of the hood with this type of ducting is possible, then yes, a microwave can be installed above this unit.

How does a self clean or auto clean range hood works, there were a lots of talk of these features, but not much information available explaining the technology.

The Zephyr AK2100A uses an internal centrifugal fan to flush out and liquefy cooking residue within the internal housing. This residue then drains off into collection cups, which can ultimately be emptied.

Can this hood be converted to ductless?

Unfortunately, the Zephyr AK2100A cannot be converted to ductless.

Can the lights stay on if the fan is off?

Like other Zephyr products, the Zephyr AK2100A lights can stay on without the blower.

Does venting to the rear vs top have any effect on noise from the fan?

When venting these products, the direction is irrelevant to the sone level for your applications.

Can it be connected to a 6'' duct on the top?

It is recommended that you vent the Zephyr AK2100A using 7" round ducting.
