If your Adelaide kitchen has a stove and you intend to use it, then installing a proper rangehood is a must. As you cook, smoke and odours are released in the air. Without any type of air filtration, these small particles will just float in the air. They will make your Adelaide kitchen hot and humid. The unpleasant odours can also travel through the rest of your house, making it smell bad.

So, how can you decide which rangehood is the best for you? These key factors will help you out, as you weigh in the available range of rangehoods.

Ventilation Type

Rangehoods come with one of two ventilation types. A ducted or vented ventilation system will suck the air from your Adelaide kitchen and channel it outside. On the other hand, a ductless or non-vented rangehood will just filter the air in your kitchen.

In general, ducted exhaust systems are more effective than ductless ones. Non-vented rangehoods do not direct the smoke and odours outside. They just clean the air and return it back to the kitchen. Over time, these rangehoods will require more maintenance and regular filter replacement.

Power

Choosing the power of your rangehood depends mostly on your cooking style and requirements. If you usually cook large meals that involve lots of frying, then you need a powerful range hood. The size of your Adelaide kitchen will also play a role in determining the required power level of your range hood. Larger kitchens need more powerful rangehoods to clear the air effectively.

Noise

One of the most common complaints about rangehoods is their noise level. Some rangehoods sound like a small aircraft taking off, especially on their highest power level. The noise can make you avoid using your rangehood most of the time. Therefore, you should check the rangehoods in action to test their noise level before purchasing them.

With some rangehoods, you will not have to worry about the noise at all. Schweigen provides a range of silent rangehoods that do not make any noise. You can visit our Adelaide showroom to check them out. They are all plugged in and on display there.

Look

Nowadays, rangehoods come in various finishes and designs. Choose the look that suits your kitchen design and personal taste. You also need to consider how easy it will be to keep the range hood clean. If you want the rangehood to be the focal point of your kitchen and make a bold statement, choose a wall-mounted or an island range hood. On the other hand, under-mount rangehoods are almost invisible in the kitchen.
