Range hoods are one of the most important appliances that you need for your kitchen. It collects the smoke, grease, oils, and odor produced while cooking in order to keep the area clean and smelling good. Without an efficient range hood, the smoke and grease can stick to the kitchen and even on your hair and clothes. You definitely dont want to smell like cooking oil or a hint of what you had for breakfast. Range hoods come in various sizes, designs, and brands. And, each type has both strengths and weaknesses. Understanding these differences and choosing based on your specific requirements and preferences will help you make informed decisions when buying. Here are some important factors you need to consider.
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.
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.
Purchasing a professional custom-made range hood for your kitchens needs, means not only ensuring you have a ventilation system that will meet the demands of your cooking equipment, but also that you own a sleek, seamless piece of art precisely integrated with the look, feel and design of your kitchen. Custom made designs can be created without any seams in one piece, without screwed connections, rivets, or break-lines. With the fusion-welding process the lower canopy is joined to the chimney of the hood without any ridge. They are not only extremely attractive; they are also modeled on the traditional blacksmiths hood of old, with some modern elements. This gives them the best of the classic original hood aesthetic, with all the conveniences of the top of the line modern hoods. Such a factor means it is a highly efficient ventilation system, which utilizes every inch of space it fills. The range hoods design is least to say extremely efficient and is as functional as it is attractive.
