In 2016, its been found that most people dont use a copper range hood or other type to control moisture and ventilate their kitchens. This is a scary finding. Studies show that they only turn on their copper range hoods for smoke and odor removal. What could possibly be the reason they use it so minimally? Surprisingly, its due to noise. Most copper range hoods on the market arent as noisy as they were several years ago, so it pays for homeowners to reconsider, and maybe update their current hood. A Necessary Element For any home, there is no doubt that use of a copper range hood or any type is detrimental to the inhabitants health. It doesnt matter if its a gas or electric range, it still produces pollutants within the home over time when a hood vent is not utilized. Sadly, most homes have one available but due to ignorance or noise they dont activate them when necessary.
The ducted range hoods will always be the recommended choice when it comes to performance, but there are certain instances wherein a user has no choice but to use ductless range hoods. People living in apartments or condos might be prohibited in drilling holes through their wall or the layout of a home limits any possible installation of vents. A good example is a kitchen located in the center of a home with a second floor. You cant install vents to the ceiling if you have second floor or attic. You also cant install vents through the wall into another room. In this case, the ductless hood is always a good option. It may not perform as well as the ducted types but it does the job of filtering and maintaining good and healthy air within the kitchen. Furthermore, the kitchen hoods without ducts are easy to install and move around in any desired position or space within the kitchen. Remodeling is easier, too. With a vented hood, however, you need to close up the hole and drill a new one if you ever feel the need to move your range hood. You might have to do external changes the kitchens heating and ventilation systems as well when remodeling.
Its been proven that proper ventilation produces great IAQ - Indoor Air Quality - to protect people from unhealthy indoor pollutants, according to the Home Ventilating Institute. If a range hood purchase is in order, weve got a couple of key factoids: The days of noisy range hood ventilation are long gone. Significant advances have been made in manufacturing. Thankfully, range hoods today are 50 percent less noisy compared with those from just a few years ago. Experts advise that the noise level should not exceed 2.5 sones on its lowest level (this figure is in keeping with all range hoods sold on decorplanet.com). For example, the Cavaliere models noise level is pitch perfect at low speed: 0.4 sones. Thats quality for you.
