A power pack (also called a liner) allows you to make your own hood fan design. The power pack here is incorporated into a stone surround.
Power packs have controls on the bottom panel, but they can also be wired to a wall-mounted control box. Some manufacturers also offer wireless remote controls. The standard power pack unit requires a structure that extends at least 21 inches from the wall.
Most power packs include LED or low-voltage halogen spotlighting, too. Take a good look at the positioning of your lights. Depending on the manufacturer, they can be mounted on the front or back of the unit. Some install at a tilt. Based on my experience, a model with front-mounted lights that tilt toward the back or lights that face straight down work better than lights mounted at the back of the unit.
