by Dillon Patterson Article Publisher

If you are still confused about whether to go for a range hood in your kitchen or not, then do not stress out as it is certainly a smart investment for a lifetime.

A range hood is also called a vent or exhaust hood and it is a device to be installed above your cooking range in the kitchen that helps extract smoke, fumes, airborne particles, or steam produced during cooking and throw it out of the kitchen.

Also, it is the perfect ventilation system to filter out smoke, grease coming out of the stove, and keep it away from you.

Once you decide on setting up vent hood, the first thing that comes to your mind is the material of the hood. Certainly, it matters and the most common material preferred is wood.

You can choose from the wide range of custom wood range hood designs that compliment your kitchen cabinetry.

Types of vent hoods

Well, you can choose from the 2 types of vent hoods that are

Ducted vent hoods

Ductless vent hoods

Certainly, choosing between any of the two is solely your choice, but before you decide on one, you need to know about a little about the two so that you make an informed decision.

Duct vent hoods

When it comes to ducted custom wood vent hoods, you will find them mostly in commercial kitchens. In some cases, they are also installed in homes where larger cooking ranges are used that produce a lot of smoke, dirty air and fumes.

These hoods need to be installed near a duct system that runs from the interior of your kitchen to the exteriors of your house/building.

Ductless vent hoods

These vent hoods can be installed anywhere in your kitchen. As they are made to ventilate the interiors of your house, there is no need to install them only near a duct.

These hoods filter the air they absorb and blow it back on into the room with the help of a systematic recirculation process.

The filters used inside these hoods are made of activated carbon/charcoal that eliminates the smoke and odor from the air which in turn circulates back clean air in your kitchen. These hoods are versatile and come with an easy installation process.

Certainly, these hoods are convenient as compared to ducted hoods and some of these hoods are also designed with an automatic programmed feature for turning them ON/OFF.

Budget matters

You can also consult interior designers before installing a new vent hood as this is a one-time investment that you wish to pay back in the long run and ventilate your kitchen space perfectly.
