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.
Cost Hoods come in different prices. An estimate cost would range from $300 to more than $1500. Ordering Online Many websites are now offering sale of hood stocks online. More choices are available, and more importantly, there are cheaper and more affordable selections on the web. Never forget to buy only from trusted sites and sellers, though. Check for availability of warranty guarantees. Take your time in choosing the perfect hood for you, dont hurry, and pick the best out of the rest. The kitchen is considered one of the focal parts of any home, where the family often comes together. It is where the meals are prepared, so the safety of this room deserves only the best for the whole family.
(Total Wattage X 3.5) / 100 = Cubic Feet Per Minute First, refer to your stoves manual and check the total wattage of your burner and boiler. Multiply the total to 3.5 to get the BTU (British thermal units). You can then divide the BTU to 100 to get the CFM. Once you have calculated, check the range hoods CFM. It should match or be more than the calculated CFM of your stove to be ideal range hood size and capacity. Maintenance and Repair When choosing the right kitchen hood, also consider the ease in maintenance and the price for parts replacement. You can consult with sales representatives or check the specifications or manual to see whether the filters and parts you need to maintain are easy to clean through simple methods. Check if they are made in material that doesnt corrode when washed in soapy water. Buying a range hood with parts that dont wear out easily and cost a lot to replace will be good investment. With all these factors in mind, you can make informed decisions and buy a range hood that will possibly last you for years.
It is easy to replace the hood but you should know which model and style to choose before replacing it. Basically range hoods are of two types. The ducted range hood draws the heat, smoke, fumes, odor and moisture from the cooking range and suck it up a vent and release it out side of the house. The ductless range hoods on the other hand filter out the odors from the air. The other components like smoke and fumes are just blown around the kitchen. They are not physically removed. Features-wise there is not much to choose from. They work on very simple system of using a fan to suck out the air away from the cooking area and filter it out through the duct or send it out of the house. What you need to look for is a system that works with little noise and provides sufficient lighting to allow you to cook with ease.
