The advantages of good ventilation
The kitchen is not only where you spend the most time in your home, but it’s also the main source of indoor air pollution. Thanks to range hoods, however, you can minimize the build-up of odours and cooking greases in the kitchen, and, at the same time, reduce the chance of mold growth while protecting your paint or wallpaper. The hoods also free up your interior from excess heat and smoke due to cooking, and they reduce condensation and help to eliminate the accumulation of bacteria by evacuating steam. With our wide selection of hoods, you will have no difficulty choosing the one that best suits your style of cooking.
Fan power is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), and it’s important to choose the right number of CFMs based on the type of cooking surface, available space, and cooking habits you have. The most powerful motor might not necessarily be the one that best suits your needs. The number of motor power adjustments allows for more flexibility: the more adjustments, the more power achieved to maintain a low noise level.
Filter composition should also be considered. Regular filters must be replaced since they cannot be cleaned. Micromesh filters are washable and reusable and are ideally suited for medium to high performance hoods. Employed in the catering industry, baffle filters are washable, highly durable, and used in the majority of high performance hoods.
As for lighting, two types of bulbs, halogens and LEDs, are typically used and more durable than others. In addition, some hoods offer several light intensities to provide you with perfect lighting at any time.
