Spring Into Clean Air

Zephyr Ventilation Transforms the Kitchen With Fresh Designs for Your Spring Remodel

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - April 18, 2013) - With spring remodeling season upon us, consumers are looking for innovative design solutions and remodeling ideas to refresh their kitchens. Zephyr leads the industry in kitchen ventilation hood design, innovation and technology and offers an array of products that can instantly transform a kitchen from mundane to design-centric.

According to Yahoo! Homes, a hot trend for 2013 are new appliance upgrades. Consumer buying confidence is rising and homeowners are justifying their purchase of appliances that will add value to the home, provide multiple functional benefits and also reflect the homeowner's personal style. In addition, the American Institute of Architects conducted a survey and discovered that, with the housing market beginning to rebound, consumers are also putting their focus on energy efficiency, smart functionality and open designs throughout the home.

Zephyr is responding to the uprising trend in open, island kitchen designs, with multiple island and wall ventilation hood styles that serve as a bold focal point and centerpiece for the home. The Verona wall features a combination of sophisticated style, LED lighting, energy efficient technology and powerful performance. Verona features a straight glass canopy with a LED light display that lets the homeowner select Cloud Blue, Deep Blue and Amber color settings to best match the kitchen's décor.

"In the past several years we've installed multiple Zephyr hoods and have been very happy with the ease of installation," says Steve Rehder, Rehder Construction, Inc. "Our last client selected the Zephyr Verona hood for its open and modern design and the LED lighting feature, which blended in with the overall kitchen aesthetics and provided a unique feature to the cooktop area. They were very happy with both the design and the energy efficient features of the hood."

Zephyr's recent launch of the DCBL Suppression System™ (part of the Next Generation Europa Collection) is a groundbreaking technology that offers the quietest, most energy efficient and best performing range hoods on the market. While design remains a top priority for consumers, it is also important that appliances include features that increase functionality and the overall user experience. Zephyr's Clean Air technology is an added feature that continuously recirculates the air throughout the day to ensure the kitchen air is clean and fresh.

"It is reassuring to see the increased confidence among homeowners who are involved in the kitchen remodeling process," says Luke Siow, Zephyr president. "Our wide product offering provides design solutions for any kitchen style and our groundbreaking new technology ensures high performance and energy efficiency."
