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.
Copper range hoods are becoming more popular within the kitchen and can make a very stylish statement. Copper is attractive and easily molded to your own requirements according to the style, design and shape of your kitchen. 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. Window shopping is a good way to look at the different designs on offer in order to get the best designs and desired finish for your kitchen.

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.
