Fire Safe Baffle Filter System

Filtering is the heart of your ventilation system.  A filter system must remove all grease and contaminates to complete its job.  Modern-Aire Ventilating believes like most major range manufacturers and restaurant supply houses that the most efficient filtration system is the Baffle Filter.  Unlike non-filtered range hoods, a Baffle Filter catches up to 97% of all grease and grease particles before they ever enter the interior of the range hood, making clean up a breeze.  Unlike mesh filters, the air passing through a Baffle Filter is not restricted, thus allowing a smoother and quieter transition.  Perhaps the most important aspect of the Baffle Filter is that the baffles in the filter are positioned to eliminate direct passage of flame through the filter thus making it one of the safest and most efficient filtration systems available today.  Our dishwasher safe stainless steel baffle filter systems are manufactured of solid 300 series stainless steel.  When you look into a Modern-Aire range hood, the beauty of a stainless steel baffle filter system enhances it’s looks.  Our baffle filters have rounded edges on the baffles to protect your fingers from sharp edges during removal.   Handle our competitors baffle filters and you will feel the difference.  

Lighting System

Illuminate your cooktop in style with Modern-Aire Ventilating.  All of our vent hoods come standard with Halogen lighting and a dimmer switch that will adjust the lighting to your specific needs. Halogen lighting provides exceptional visibility and efficiency, making it the lighting of choice.  We use Par 20/50 Watt floods which are easy to find and generally stocked at your local hardware store.  Halogen light bulbs have an average life of 2000 hours, that is 2 times longer than conventional light bulbs. Halogen lights are Energy Saving, saving you up to 60% in energy costs versus incandescent lamps while offering a whiter brighter output of approximately 550 lumens. Oh and yes, the bulbs are included.

Switching / Control Knobs

All Modern-Aire Ventilation units are controlled by a solid state variable speed motor control.  This switch gives you infinite control over your ventilation needs. From a simmer to Wok cooking, you set the motor to your precise ventilation needs.  All lighting needs are controlled by a solid state dimmer switch.  You control the amount of lighting you need, from full bright total illumination to a safety night light. This combination of switching gives you total control of your ventilation and lighting needs.
