Design and Aesthetic Appeal Range hoods can be a central element in the design of your kitchen area. Many types, finishes, and even custom-made designs offer consumers a whole lot of choices that can look great with the rest of the elements and design of the space. You can consider island vent hoods, wall-mounted, ceiling mounted, and under-cabinet type. Range Hood Size A vent hood is efficient if it has the right capacity to match the heat output of your stove. This just simply means that the vent hood must have the sufficient capacity to suck in the amount of smoke, odor, and steam your range releases when being used. You will understand this more if you consider your stoves wattage and the cubic feet per minute (CFM) of the vent hood.
Your kitchen can have a very appealing look from the kind of range hoods you use. When thinking of the decoration of a kitchen, you must bear in mind that the kind of range hood you use will enhance the look of your kitchen and provide enjoyment and safety to the person using the kitchen. Modern kitchens are often nowadays very classy and the kind of range hood you use will depend on the style of your room and the kind of look you want to promote. Wood is becoming increasingly popular as a choice of material for range hoods, due to their timeless, quality, classy appeal.Since the kind of range hood you install will add to the overall look of the kitchen, it is highly recommended that you do some window shopping in some of the furniture and kitchen equipment shops in your area to get the best design ideas.
Keeping the air free of grease and excess moisture also keeps the entire kitchen cleaner. Airborne grease and moisture produced by cooking settles on kitchen surfaces, leaving a sticky film on cabinets and counters - but with a range hood, those pollutants are removed, making kitchen cleanup much easier and faster. The more advanced range hood models even offer a feature that keeps the hood running on a 10-15 minute timer after youre done cooking, in order to clean the last traces of odor and then quietly turn off. By forcing the polluted air outside, the range hood creates negative pressure, which causes the clean outdoor air to enter the house, improving the air quality throughout the residence, not just in the kitchen. Removing harmful chemicals, promoting good airflow, and eliminating moisture & grease creates a healthier environment, which is especially important for anyone suffering from allergies, asthma, COPD, and other respiratory problems.
(Total Wattage X 3.5) / 100 = Cubic Feet Per Minute First, refer to your stoves manual and check the total wattage of your burner and boiler. Multiply the total to 3.5 to get the BTU (British thermal units). You can then divide the BTU to 100 to get the CFM. Once you have calculated, check the range hoods CFM. It should match or be more than the calculated CFM of your stove to be ideal range hood size and capacity. Maintenance and Repair When choosing the right kitchen hood, also consider the ease in maintenance and the price for parts replacement. You can consult with sales representatives or check the specifications or manual to see whether the filters and parts you need to maintain are easy to clean through simple methods. Check if they are made in material that doesnt corrode when washed in soapy water. Buying a range hood with parts that dont wear out easily and cost a lot to replace will be good investment. With all these factors in mind, you can make informed decisions and buy a range hood that will possibly last you for years.
