Copper range hoods are becoming more popular within the kitchen and can make a very stylish statement.

It is this flexibility that makes it a very desirable material for a range hood. They can come either as ready made, off the shelf items or handcrafted, custom made. The prices vary on the type of model you choose and can be very expensive for a hand made hood that requires a lot of intricate work.

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.
During the cooking process, air pollutants such as smoke, steam, grease particles, and odors come up from the cooking surface. Gas cooktops and ranges add carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide to the mix, and grilling tops it off with volumes of greasy smoke. In addition, excess moisture from the dishwasher, escaping odors from the trash can, the lingering smell of last nights takeout, and many other sources, together create a serious air quality problem. Range hoods solve this problem by removing the polluted air to the outside (ducted installation) or cleaning it with a series of filters (ductless / recirculating installation). However, besides the obvious benefit of keeping the kitchen air odor-free, range hoods offer several other, more subtle, advantages.
