Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

This website is all about range hoods and kitchen ventilation. Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions to help improve your skills and stay safe.

A range hood, also known as a kitchen hood or exhaust hood, is a device installed above a stove or cooktop to remove smoke, heat, steam, and airborne grease and particles from the air. The range hood contains a fan and filter system that sucks up the contaminants and vents them outside the home, or recirculates the air through a filter to remove the impurities before releasing it back into the kitchen.

A range hood is an essential appliance for any kitchen because it helps improve indoor air quality by removing pollutants and odors, prevents moisture buildup and mold growth, and reduces the risk of fire and smoke damage. It also helps to keep the kitchen clean by preventing grease buildup on surfaces and cabinets.

To choose the right size range hood for your stove, you should measure the width of your cooktop and choose a hood that is at least as wide as the cooktop, or slightly wider. The recommended airflow rate for a range hood is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), and it should be able to exchange the air in the kitchen at least 15 times per hour.

The height of the hood should also be considered to ensure it is at the appropriate distance from the cooktop to effectively capture smoke and grease. It is recommended to consult a professional or refer to the manufacturer's guidelines to ensure proper installation and sizing of the range hood.
