Advantages of the V-ZUG MinairComfo designer wall/island hood

One system – many advantages
Shaft spaces are no longer needed to ventilate the kitchen, which provides for greater planning freedom and more rentable floorspace. The cross-appliance solution yields a technological advantage, which in turn has a positive impact on the property's long-term value.

Outstanding solution
Extracted air and forced convection appliances are frequently employed in energy-efficient houses. Extractor hoods remove expensively heated room air, causing low pressure to build up quickly. Forced convection hoods are only able to remove some smells and no moisture at all. When connected to the Zehnder comfort ventilation system, V-ZUG MinairComfo solves all three problems!

A clean system
Connecting a range hood to a comfort ventilation system calls for special measures in terms of grease absorption. This helps to explain why employs up to eight grease filters on the MinairComfo (instead of up to four). It hardly needs adding that these eight grease filters can be cleaned in one go in a dishwasher.

Tested by accredited testing institutes:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Fire protection
  • Grease absorption
  • Noise transmission
  • Cooking vapour capture


Unbelievably quiet – only 48dB(A) at the top power level
Pretty smart: the motor is located in the comfort ventilation appliance and the maximum power level is 280m3/h. Which explains why the V-ZUG MinairComfo hoods are so unbelievably quiet. By way of comparison, a pan of boiling water generates noise of 52dB(A).

Never change an activated charcoal filter again
As with a forced convection hood, the air balance is always right. The V-ZUG MinairComfo hoods have additional advantages. It doesn't need an active charcoal filter, and 100% of the moisture is removed – unlike with forced convection hoods.

Comfort ventilation appliance pre-heats fresh air
Extracted air needs fresh air; this is pre-heated by the intelligent ventilation system and introduced into the home and does not cool it again during the winter. You save on heating costs.

Much less warm air lost
Forced convection hoods are often acclaimed as the solution in Minergie house. They are more energy-efficient than exhaust air hoods because the air is fed back into the kitchen after being cleaned. That said, the windows must be opened wide for a short time after cooking in order to expel smells and moisture from the kitchen. During the winter, this brings cold air into the kitchen, which needs to be heated at great expense. V-ZUG MinairComfo knows nothing of these problems.
