Can I use LED bulbs with this range hood instead of the halogen?

I want to use LED bulbs with this unit instead of the halogen bulbs. Can I do that?
Asked by: RBUD
YES and I don't know why there are other answers stating you can't. Maybe they're unaware there are LED replacement bulb to replace the unit's Halogen PAR20 bulb. If I'm not mistaken, even Home Depot sells the LED replacements that are manufactured by several different vendors. Since this hood vent's lighting system has the 2 light setting (High and Low), be sure the LED replacements are dimmable (can be used with dimming/ dimmer switch), otherwise the Low setting may cause the bulbs to flicker slightly.

What replacement light bulb do you recommend? I believe it came with Philips, but I am having a hard time finding a Halogen. Thank you.
Asked by: Juno
I use dimmable type LED bulbs (the replacements for the PAR20 halogen type) LED bulbs DO NOT get anywhere nearly as HOT that the halogens bulbs do and they're just as bright, LED's use at least 65 -70% less energy. There is also a choice in color temperature range like Bright White, Warm, Daylight, Soft White, etc. the attached image shows the temperature range for different type bulbs. Generally for home kitchen, bath, storage and closet lighting, the popular choice is somewhere in the 3000K to 4500K temp range, that lighting a bit brighter, whiter light instead of the more yellow soft lighting that old style incandescent bulbs produce. Obviously aiding to see better when important tasks as cooking is being performed.

My husband and Grandson put it in quite easily. We are really happy with the looks and the lighting is great. I ordered the hood because of the larger, quieter fan as our former one was quite noisy and the fan was small. The fan works but does not pull much air. It also pulls air on low and reverses on high. My husband talked to someone on the "help" line. After describing the problem he was advised to return the hood. That hasn't been done yet as he needs help to take it down. I am disappointed it doesn't work properly. It does look great. I gave the poor rating only because of the above problem. We do plan to replace it with the same hood and are sure this was just a flucke.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The range hood is of good quality and works well.... The range hood is of good quality and works well. One small installation issue is the fact that the damper is not included and I could not find one at Home Depot or a local outlet that sells heating supplies. I ended up cutting the damper from my old hood and attaching it to the new hood with screws

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with this hood. The recommended 50 watt bulbs... Very happy with this hood. The recommended 50 watt bulbs are too bright on high in my opinion. I will be replacing them with 40 watt bulbs. As mentioned in other reviews, the hood doesn't come with the backdraft damper and needs to be purchased separately. Without it, cold air pours thru the hood.

The HIGH setting is louder but not too noisy. It really moves a lot of air. Plus, the unit is light weight considering it looks so profession and heavy.We Love it Con's: a) the directions really should be revised/ updated to clearly state that the DAMPER with it's & close flap is screwed under the hood behind the screen for transit storage I was convinced I needed to buy some kind of adapter to attach to the back of hood because it was just a flat opening with 3 holes on top and bottom but after locating it and attaching to the back, the other Damper for the exterior of the house fit onto this unit very nicely. b) again the directions should be updated to indicate LED lights can be used with this unit instead of stating only Halogen PAR30 bulbs should be used. there are many LED PAR30 type bulbs available and they work fantastic, just make certain quality dimmable type replacements are used, otherwise there's a chance the LED's will flicker if not made for a dimmer switch ... it'll not cause any damage or harm but it would be quite annoying. NOTE: I recommend this unit be used with the quality MasterFlow thru the wall vent with the spring hinged flap/ damper. Two damper flaps provide a better seal when fans are not in use and may help keep interior and exterior sound, as well as bugs from entering. I bought the one with extended flange to fit up to 10 inch walls so that I was able to use tin snips and custom trim it to fit exactly and tightly over hood's damper flange. Be sure to use quality 100% silicone around the hood's included damper and around the external vent against the exterior wall to really seal the entire exhaust well so the hood vent can work to it's full potential, you'll be glad you did.

PRO's - fairly easy install, especially if fitting into an existing cutout/ replacing old vent hood. powerful motor/ move a lot of air on HIGH setting, very good on LOW too. the exhaust damper with a hinged flap IS INCLUDED and it's temporarily stored inside the hood under the filter screens. Can use dimmable LED size PAR20 replacement bulbs instead of the energy hog Halogen bulbs. LED's are bright and there are choices in output color range such as Warm White, Bright White, Daytime. (for some reason the owners manual says ONLY Halogens must be used and so does The products Technical Support needs to educate themselves because the NuTone Customer Support Answer to a consumers question claims Halogens must be used, but that is 100% INCORRECT. There are replacement LED's available and it will not harm anything but be sure to use the DIMMABLE type LED's because otherwise there'll be an annoying flicker when used on Low setting) NOTE: this unit can be installed as VENTED through wall or ceiling to outside or installed as a Non-Vented unit. There is a vented slot above the hood for non vented so the air is moved from stove through filters then out the vent top which obviously does go back into the room but it is slightly filtered and moved away from stove top. BE SURE to READ directions about blocking off the vented on top front IF you are going to use this to VENT OUTSIDE. There is a baffle under the front of hood behind lights that can be positioned to either Open to vent through top front side for Non Vented installation OR turned around to block off/ CLOSE that vent for VENTED through a ceiling or wall installation so ALL the air is vented to outside. I learned the hard way because I did not read the directions first. CON's: the directions should be revised to correct the bulb type information to include LED PAR20 dimmable/ used with dimmer switches or Halogen PAR20 bulbs CAN BE USED I cannot think of any other complaints about this vented range hood. Recommendations: use a good quality 100% Silicone Caulking between the exhaust vent damper lip and the exterior wall for a good seal. I used a Master Flow brand spring door type damper and trimmed the length of the duct to fit exactly onto the hood's included damper flange and also made sure to BLOCK OFF the interior vent that is on top front of above the lights. As I indicated above, there is a Baffle inside the hood that can be positioned to Open or Close off the interior vent depending installation of Vented or Non Vented. Obviously if Vented and that interior isn't blocked Off then the range really won't Vent outside to it's full potential.

Had to take it apart to prepare it for my installation, but the directions were clear and that made it go much better. The fan is a little louder on the high setting than I had hoped but overall I am pretty satisfied with it and it really looks great.
