Published at Wednesday, 20 March 2019. Kitchen Vent Hood. By Laila Hiltunen.
The hoods that vent the air outside of the home are called vented hoods. They require a duct system that attaches to the range hood and is connected to an external wall within the home. These hoods are very easy to maintain as they don't have any filtration system that you need to clean or replace. They do have a grid type panel underneath that will need to be cleaned to remove any grease that clogs the small holes.
If you cook top is against the kitchen wall and surrounded by kitchen cabinets, you will want to opt for a wall mounted range hood. These units fix directly to the wall, and above the cook top. If your stove has been installed into a center kitchen unit, then your best option is to buy an island range hood. These hoods are fixed to the ceiling and therefore require a beam within the ceiling to attach to. Whether you choose a wall mounted or island model, both can be bought as a vented or ventless unit.
Kitchen hoods have different ways of dealing with cooking steam and fumes from the stove. You will find a range hood that simple extracts the air from the stove and then vents this air outside the home. You then find kitchen hoods that extract the cooking steam from the stove and clean it through a series of filters before this steam is then re-circulated back into the kitchen.
