What Does A Rangehood Do?


You may be wondering if you need a kitchen range hood? is it essential? Read on to learn more.

A range hood is a kitchen appliance that helps to remove cooking fumes, smoke, and grease from the air. It typically consists of a fan, a filter, and a light. The fan draws in the air from the cooking area, and the filter removes the grease and other particles. The clean air is then either vented to the outside or recirculated back into the kitchen.

There are two main types of range hoods: ducted and ductless. Ducted range hoods have a duct that carries the air from the fan to the outside of the home. This is the most effective type of range hood, as it removes all of the cooking fumes and smoke from the air. Ductless range hoods, on the other hand, recirculate the air back into the kitchen after it has been filtered. This type of range hood is not as effective as ducted range hoods, but it is less expensive and easier to install.

Here is how a range hood works in more detail:

  1. The fan motor turns on, creating suction.
  2. The suction draws in the air from the cooking area.
  3. The air passes through the filter, which removes the grease and other particles.
  4. The clean air is then either vented to the outside or recirculated back into the kitchen.

The amount of air that a range hood can move is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). The CFM rating of a range hood should be matched to the size of the kitchen and the type of cooking that will be done. For example, a larger kitchen or a kitchen with a lot of stovetop cooking will require a range hood with a higher CFM rating.

Range hoods are an important part of any kitchen, as they help to keep the air clean and free of cooking fumes. They can also help to prevent the buildup of grease and other particles on the walls and ceiling of the kitchen.

Here are some additional tips for using a range hood:

  • Turn on the range hood before you start cooking.
  • Turn on the range hood on the highest setting when you are cooking something that produces a lot of smoke or fumes.
  • Turn off the range hood after you are finished cooking.
  • Clean the filter on a regular basis.
