Retrofitting A Kitchen Hood With LED

As LED lighting becomes increasingly popular in kitchen appliances, Martin Appliance did some research on retrofitting Halogen ventilation hoods with LED lights.

Zephyr is a vent manufacturer that commonly uses LED lighting in their high-end vent hoods. LEDs have a longer lifespan and lower energy usage than Halogen, and produce much less heat when in use.

An average Halogen bulb for a vent hood can be anywhere from $10 to $30 a bulb, while an LED bulb is about $40.

Not all Halogen ventilation hoods can be retrofitted with an LED. If you’re interested in seeing if your vent hood can be retrofitted, give us a call at 800-224-3612 to speak with a technician.
