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.
(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.
The best range hoods are those that are able to contain and remove the smoke and fumes coming out of the cooking range and quickly exchange with air thus keeping the kitchen free of harmful gases. These hoods are also a lot quieter than other comparable hoods. The lighting options have also been found to be exceptional. The range hoods available in the market today are extremely stylish and very well made. They offer stainless steel and other pro-finishes that match the style of the kitchen. The best hoods will help make your kitchen look professional and well-designed. Since hoods are the last thing on the mind of most people they generally end up choosing models that dont match rest of the kitchen. So, it is better to invest a little time and energy is choosing the right hood for your needs.
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.
