New Under-Cabinet Ventilation Products Can Be Installed In As Little As 10 Minutes
BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – Range hood installations just got easier and more cost effective with the introduction of under-cabinet ventilation systems from Whirlpool Corporation that include the industry-exclusive Flex Install System (FIT System).
Designed to reduce labor costs for professionals, Whirlpool Corporation hoods with the FIT System require no measuring or cutting and can be installed by one person in about 10 minutes.
“Traditional under-cabinet hoods, which can take 30 minutes or more for two people to install, cost contractors time and money and can impact remodeling and new build appliance installation times,” said Bob Bergeth, general manager, builder sales at Whirlpool Corporation. “Our new FIT System range hoods mediate those problems with both new and retro-fit installations. In just three easy steps, one contractor can install a FIT System hood by themselves, without having to measure for filler strips and electrical location placement.”
FIT System range hoods can be installed using a quick and easy three-step process:
1. Attach the FIT brackets and prep electrical connections;
2. Position the hood and attach it to the cabinet; and,
3. Complete the electrical connection.
