Does it have a top exhaust? We can't use a back or bottom exhaust. Ours is vented on top.

Is this a ductless vent? And how does it circulate the air?

We recently took out our hood range and are looking to replace it. it is the standard fit, and is ductless. The one we had before blew air through the front, but I don't see vents on the front of this one. So how does it circulate the air? does it suck it up and blow it straight back down? That would be preferable!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great upgrade We purchased this range hood last month to replace an old non-functioning one, after reading many reviews and photos. This unit is sleek and powerful, but quiet. We installed it ourselves without much hassle and it works perfectly. I like the fact that it came with the light bulbs, and I love that the underside is completely enclosed. My old range hood used to catch a lot of grease and was difficult to keep clean. This one is so easy! The stainless steel finish is a great match for our new GE Profile range. The best part is the price - half of what the matching GE hood goes for. Hopefully it will last a long time! February 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased with the look My local Home Depot does not stock this item, and so I had to order it for in-store pickup. LIKES: -Clean front/design (no distracting buttons on front) -Flat, smooth appearance underneath (no gaps or open areas) -Two halogen light bulbs included the box (competing brands don't include them) -Very attractive design DISLIKES: -The highest fan setting is loud December 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Easy to install and more power than I thought. Looks great !!! April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love, love, love it!!! It was a project for my husband and I, at 65 and we did it!!! Love the hood, had a real old one, got a new stove so it deserved a new hood!!! Love the 2 features of the light, so one for night light one for cooking!!! It looks great too!!!! March 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, solid unit Well built unit, solid construction and well finished. Installation was pretty straightforward for internal venting. Directions need to better identify removing a baffle for internal venting. Disappointed that the charcoal odor filters (2 needed) are a $40 ($20 each) additional cost and need to be ordered. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by simple elegance is key.... The Air King AB30 is a range hood convertible for use in ductless installation (requiring 2 charcoal filters, Air King CF-09S, available separately). It has much to recommend it! With paired 50W Halogen bulbs, or your choice of LED lamps with color temperature offering of soft-white, daylight and bright-white (2700K - 4000K, available separately), the beauty of the hood is in the directional placement of the two light holders so that the entire range top and all that is within even the deepest of pots is lit-up to their bottoms. See all of your range top food! And after finishing the joy of food preparation that is both well cared for and carefully observed in its preparation, leave your light on using the dimmed setting if just wishing to glamorize your appliance and its carefully selected range hood. (The lower light setting may be too bright for use as a night light.) Attention to detail even extends to the rounded outer corners of the range hood. No need to worry about a head bump of the really tall person who tries to get too close to your stove top. But please do observe required heights. While minimum mounting height (from bottom of range hood to the top of stove) must be at least 22 inches, it is best to use heights of from 24 to the maximum of 30 inches. (Please do check with authorities re local building codes as specific, minimum height is often the same as that of California code: lowest edge of range hood must be 24 inches above electric stove-tops and 27 inches above gas stove-tops.) If calculating the total under cabinet mounting space from the range top to the underneath cabinet attachment, just subtract the hood's height of 6 inches to gain the exact distance form stove-top to bottom of the Air King Essence Range Hood. Its 22-inch depth assures that even 5-burner stove tops, offering upwards of 50,000 BTU, are capably handled by the fan's operation. Concerned that sound levels are not as low as can be found in marketing hype of other range hoods? Not to worry. A trade-off in purchasing recirculated (ductless hood) operation is that no range hood manufacturer can accurately spec a sound level when used in a ductless operation. A benefit, however, of ductless operation is that it can offer a warmer kitchen with overall energy savings possible, especially if you are located in colder climates. More to the point, ductless is the only way that many a new home is configured. Recommended accessory: A Backsplash, Air King SP2430, offering that matches your range and your range hood in your choice of White, Black or Stainless Steel, is a 24" x 30" item that fits from the very lowest rear edge of your Air King Range Hood to just below the raised height of your range's back splash. (Most range tops have a raised back splash of at least 7 inches. If your range top has no raised back splash, perhaps because your oven controls are mounted in front, the 24-inch Backsplash is not a recommended item as the 24-inch height may be too short to best accommodate the height of the Air King Range Hood mounted over your range.) In the picture supplied, I chose the white Backsplash even though having the SS range and SS range hood. For now, the white Back Splash appearance is best with the white fronts of aging kitchen cabinets. When fully updated, our decision may be to change from the initially selected White Backsplash to that of the Stainless Steel Backsplash. December 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Halogens are difficult to teplace How do you get bulbs out to replace? Love this hood except for difficulty of replacing bulbs! Is there an instrument for removing the bulbs. Lady needing a maint person! November 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hood! The install was easily done and the product is of a good solid quality. The design is very nice and looks great with my new range. The amount of air this thing moves is about twice that of the old hood without any rattling and it is not a bit louder. It illuminates the entire range top immaculately and has a nice lower setting for the lights. I couldn't be happier with the product and I'd recommend it for anyone. July 9, 2014
