Range Hoods

Posted on 16. Aug, 2009 by Dream Kitchens in Appliances

The most important thing to think about when choosing the right kind of range hood for your kitchen is your current ventilation system. Next would be the size, location, and quality of your rangehood. Some offer good outsourcing of fumes, others offer great charcoal filtration, and the more cost efficient have fans built in to push hot air towards your ceilings. As an everyday cook and remodeling expert, I recommend that you setup a good ventilation system that takes your cooking fumes outside to reduce the lingering smells and hot air from circulating throughout your home.

An ideal setup for a range hood should extend 3 in. beyond both sides of the cooking surface and its bottom edge should be about 18 to 24 in. above the cooking surface. A normal fan capable of moving air at a rate of 200 to 300 cubic feet per minute is good for normal cooking but for heavy cooking, 250 to 400 cfm is recommended. Today’s most expensive copper kitchen hoods can move more than 700cfm and have multiple speeds as well as additional lighting for the best cooking experience.

Copper range hoods are hard to find, but we have the resources for you to get them at a phenomenal price. Coming in a variety of sizes to fix your existing system or opt for a brand new one for more years of use. Like most metals, copper range hoods can be polished or made to look aged to match your style.

Broan range hood systems have been around for a long time and probably the most known by homeowners. With a variety of styles like wall mount, cabinet mounted, and hanging, you can find the right Broan range hood that fits your space and budget. With models starting a little over a 100 dollars, this is the way to go for tight pockets. If you want to look for other range hood manufacturers like Jenn-Air, Nutone, Maytag, Profile, GE, HotPoint, Sirius, Fan Tech, Turbo, Rangecraft, Windcrest, Kobe, Imperial, Calderaans search no further.
