In our last blog post, we discussed the purpose of range hoods ... getting heat, steam, and airborne contaminants from cooking out of the house. This type of range hood provides an almost endless variety of shapes, styles, and materials. Like the ceiling mount, this option provides enough space for a full size range hood with powerful ventilation.
Venting a range hood outside will always provide better performance, reduced noise, and better air quality. A recirculating, or ductless hood, uses charcoal filters to remove odors and contaminants before sending the air back into the kitchen.
