Entry Description

Snap is an Air Balancer, Elica's innovative device designed to monitor and extract air.
It works in combination with hoods fitted with a connection or standalone. Thanks to the 5 operating modes (link with hood, automatic, detox, manual and holiday), it is designed to restore the correct air balance within the home independently, keeping the quality of the air, its temperature and humidity levels under control.
Snap is extremely easy to install in any room, not just in the kitchen, and it can be operated by means of a purpose-designed APP. The LEDs on the front of the appliance show the user immediate feedback regarding comfort levels.
