What makes Broan PM390 a high cost-effective range hood

Centrifugal blower matters most
Most range hoods on the market use two types of blowers: rotary blower and centrifugal. A lot of inexpensive range hoods use the rotary blowers. Expensive or high-end range hoods incorporate the centrifugal blower as this type of the blower moves more air and is much quieter than the rotary blower. Few range hoods at such a low price out there like Broan PM390 Power Pack Range Hood uses the centrifugal blower.
CFM and sones
Due to the excellent centrifugal blower, Broan PM390 could integrate powerful CFM and low sones. Air delivery to be at least 390 CFM and sound level bot great than 6.0 sones.
Heat Sentry feature
This feature keeps detecting the cooking heat. When it find the heat exceeds the threshold, the fan will automatically change the fan to the high speed. With the heat sentry feature, you don’t need to adjust the speed manually and Broan PM390 will automatically use high fan speed to remove the excess of heat.
Expensive or cheap
