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.
There are literally hundreds of designer range hood models on the market, with styles ranging from antique to the ultra-modern. Whether the kitchen design calls for a large angular "pro-style" hood, or a sleek Italian beauty with curved glass, or a classic hood with wood trim, there is a perfect design out there to match any kitchen. As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to install a range hood in your kitchen. Start your search by determining what type of hood youll need - wall-mount or island-mount, as well as the size - at least as wide as the range/cooktop, and style that fits your kitchen design and personal taste. Price-wise, range hoods vary from bargain-basement specials for under $ 200, to luxury designer units with price tags from $ 1500 to $ 5000, to outrageous custom hoods that can run into tens of thousands of dollars. Keep in mind that like all other major appliances, a range hood needs to be installed, so the cost of installation should be figured into the budget.
The hot, moist, greasy effluent stream produced by cooking is suctioned in and exhausted outside, instead of letting it blow right in your face. Any chef who spends a significant amount of time in the kitchen environment will attest to the difference between cooking in comfort, and having to endure a steam bath for several hours. While were on the subject of comfortable cooking, it is worth noting that an overhead range hood provides additional lighting, right where you need it the most. One of the considerations for selecting a range hood should be the amount of light it provides, as well as the type of lighting - halogen, fluorescent, incandescent, or a combination. Keep in mind that the bulb wattage does not need to be high, since the hood will be much closer to the cooktop than the room lights. In addition to work lights, some high-end designer range hoods offer spectacular lighting effects, and some hoods also include warming lights.
Both of these range hoods are well priced at slightly less than $500. Since wall mounted (wall-chimney) range hoods are fitted where there are no cabinets, they provide a strong focal point. If you want to create a professional kitchen vibe where gourmet cuisine is the norm, these hoods are the design solution youve been looking for. Vents serve a useful purpose in the kitchen as they draw stale air filled with grease, odor and moisture out of the room. Critically, the range hoods noise level, power and efficiency are crucial to its performance. Homeowners seeking new range hoods are looking particularly for products that provide able and effective smoke removal capability under all cooking conditions.
