Type of Kitchen Hood There are 2 basic types of kitchen hoods - vented and ductless. The vented type sucks in the air and directs it outside of the home. The ductless hood with re-circulation fans sucks in the air, filters the smokes and grease, and redirects the air back to the kitchen. In terms of design, the vented type is bulkier because it requires a duct for installation, while the ductless design is slimmer. In terms of performance, the vented hood is way more efficient, effective, and powerful in pulling in air and keeping it out compared to the ductless design. However, installation is much more complicated and budget will, of course, be more expensive for a vented range hood. Despite the higher price, experts will always recommend vented-type hoods for long-lasting and more efficient performance.
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.
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.
The hood consists of a skirt positioned over this surface at a height that is comfortable for the average user. The skirt surrounds grease filters backed by a fan that sucks air into the unit. Fans may feature several speed options. Most fans have at least two speed settings, one designed for operation during cooking, and one that is much quieter to be used during meals. Some advanced models have an automatic fan feature that turns the fan on when temperatures get too high. This feature is a signal to the fan that steam or smoke might be present in the air and the fan should be operating. Range hoods can also feature automatic shut-off timer options. Under-cabinet hoods. A very common type of range hood is an under-cabinet hood, which is installed beneath a cabinet above a stovetop. These hoods generally require piping and tubing to exhaust fumes, smoke and gas outside of the building. Wall-chimney hoods. These hanging hoods attach to the ceiling or wall and then exhaust air outside.
