What is an Island Mount Hood and Why Should I Consider Buying One? Island hoods come in two varieties, the island mount and wall mount varieties. The choice between these two styles of hood will depend where your cook top is located, if it is in an island or peninsula setup you will need to buy an island range hood. If however your range is next to a wall, then a wall-mount hood will do. An island range hood is a unit that sits above your cook top that that consists of a ventilating fan unit and a filtration system that is used to absorb the moisture, grease and odor from the air within your kitchen. The importance of this is that these grimy pollutants are kept from spreading over the surfaces of your kitchen and instead are expunged from the air in which you are cooking. This in turn will save you cleaning surface tops to remove grease and smell stains.
The most common type is that which is attached to a cabinet and directly over the range or cook top. They exhaust to the outside, which is best. A ducted copper range hood is perfect for removal of pollutants associated with cooking. Shockingly, most homeowners dont even realize they are ducted to the outside! Less Noise Its actually very simple to find a copper range hood that isnt noisy. One way is to look for the Energy Star label affixed on the hood. Not only are they built to be more efficient overall, but they are definitely less noisy. Sound levels are at around 2.0 sones, which is more of a soothing sound than a loud, obnoxious one. There is even a searchable database for Energy Star that can be very helpful when on the hunt for a copper range hood. The newest copper range hoods, among others are those which have heat-sensing devices and automatically engage when they are detected. This way, using the hood is brainless as it will come on and turn off on its own. These "smart" range hoods are the best addition to any new home or kitchen remodel and they are fast becoming the standard across the building industry.
Seek recommendation from friends and interior designers: Word of mouth and recommendations are probably one of the best ways to find a range hood. That way you can be reassured of the quality of hood and after-service and it also gives you an opportunity to see a working version already set up in the home. You are now ready to go shopping for your range hood. Make sure you get a number of quotations from a wide range of suppliers, not just for the hood but also for fitting and subsequent servicing. Make sure you know whether your kitchen has any venting or whether this will need to be installed. Enquire as to whether any additional accessories are supplied with your hood, especially larger stores, whom may throw in an extra appliance for your kitchen. Know what warranty period you are getting with the hood so you are not left with any nasty surprises should the hood become faulty. A copper range hood is a very stylish addition to your kitchen but it is also an important piece of safety equipment and so remember that cheapest is not always the best.
