Whether it be a new build or a kitchen renovation, we can assist you. Range hoods these days look much more modern and impressive. To find the right model for your kitchen, there are a number of factors to consider. Where is your oven, stove or cooktop located, how often do you cook, how many burners or hotplates and so on.
Any range hood must be installed by qualified and licensed electricians with experience in this area. Under cabinet range hoods and Island range hoods are the most difficult to install, so make sure your range hood installer has ample experience so you won’t encounter future issues.
What are the different types of rangehoods?
Where the unit will be situated in your kitchen will determine the design and model of the new rangehood. Modern units offer different features, so choose the design to compliment both your kitchen and cooking needs.
We are happy to advise you what’s the best design to suit your kitchen. There are 3 types of rangehoods:
- Retractable – retractable hoods are activated by pulling out the hood, which activates the light and fan.
- Fixed – these are much more efficient in extraction power. They are not adjustable in any way.
- Canopy hoods – these are based on commercial kitchen designs and are a freestanding style.
Which Rangehood is Best?
The first step is accurately measuring the space it will be filling and the width of the cooktop below. This will help you purchase the right sized rangehood to efficiently clean the air directly above your cooktop.
Undermount rangehoods, also called underbench hoods are installed in kitchen cabinets above the cooktop and are very similar to slideout rangehoods. Slideout models increase their surface size when pulled out which is a definate benefit for increased extraction.
Fixed rangehoods are more effective than undermount and slide out options and make sure to check the maximum air flow extraction capacity.
Canopy rangehoods are a larger sized hood and are installed against the wall. Island bench rangehoods are similar in design but designed for island bench cooking. For serious cooks, the large collection area and powerful suction make them a popular choice as they are so effective at removing odours, smoke, steam, smoke and heat.
How Noisy are Rangehoods?
Aside from fan settings, range hoods vary in noise when operating.
Fan settings will determine the decibel level, so if you are removing steam, smoke or grease as you cook, run the fan on a lower setting so it’s working quietly and effectively.
For rapid boiling or frying cooking sessions, you’ll want the higher fan speed for max extraction capacity so this will naturally run the rangehood at louder noise levels.
When shopping around, compare technical specifications for the decibels of the model. Some hoods are whisper quiet and can barely be heard, while the average rangehood operates at around 60-70 dBA, the volume of a normal conversation.
Are All Range Hoods Vented Outside?
No, not all hoods need to be vented outside. A ductless hood is an another option to recirculate cooking smells through the exhausts.
A professional range hood duct installation is by far the most effective and efficient way to remove cooking odours, smoke and particles from the kitchen.
Hire An Experienced Contractor
Some of our clients have attempted installing their new or replacement range hood themselves.
