Installation can generally be done by any contractor for a reasonable rate (or packaged in with the cost of installing other appliances if the hood is bought as part of a major kitchen remodel), but you should always check the installation requirements with the range hood manufacturer or dealer before purchase. Its a good idea to avoid no-name range hood brands, since the cost of uninstalling and reinstalling a failed range hood will quickly erase any short-term savings gained by purchasing an "Italian style" or "European design" hood, instead of a quality unit actually made in Italy or Germany, by a well-established company, such as Miele, Gaggenau, Futuro Futuro, Elica, Faber, Kuppersbusch, and so on. Always check the manufacturers warranty terms, and make sure your contractor or installer follows the installation requirements. A high-quality, properly installed range hood will keep your air clean and your house smelling fresh for years to come.
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.
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.
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. Unfortunately, air pollution created by the cooking process can make it uncomfortable and unpleasant. Steam, smells, smoke fibers, grease elements and a whole host of other cooking nasties are spread through your kitchen area and eventually circulate throughout your entire house, which will then settle on any surface leaving a sticky and rank smelling film. An island range hood will come in handy in this instance. With a powerful blower motor, and a canopy to capture and contain the rising gases, the island mount range hood eliminates air pollution at the source, before it has a chance to spread out all over the house.
