Whether you’re remodelling or building a new home from scratch, you have probably have some idea of what your new kitchen will look like. Granite kitchen bench? Open plan? Island induction cooking surface? But what type of rangehood will you choose to sweep out unwanted kitchen smells?
Rangehoods come in many varieties and are equipped with different features and styles to accompany your imagination and design sense. Whether you are interested in lavish designs or functionality, we can help you choose between ducted and non-ducted options –all within your price range. Here at Adelaide Appliance Gallery we are proud to offer a collection of working rangehoods on display to show you the differences between several models. Here are a few things you should consider when purchasing your rangehood.
Ducted or Non-Ducted
Narrowing your search will mean choosing between ducted or non-ducted rangehoods. Often this choice will depend on whether you have access to the inner ceiling.
Vented models can easily connect to ductwork already existing in the ceiling, managing to pull air and smoke out of the house. This means any cooking smells will be quickly swept out of the kitchen and blown directly outside.
If you do not have access to ducting then a ductless rangehood capable of filtering grease, smoke, and steam away from the stove or the kitchen will be an easier option to install.
Airflow & Filtration
When it comes to ducted kitchen rangehoods, the greater the airflow, the faster the inbuilt fans can ventilate and extract carbon dioxide through their filtration system. Ultimately, the rangehood you choose will depend on your unique and individual household needs, and there are some examples that may help you out.
If you’re a seasoned cook of grilled meats, opt for rangehood models that have excellent airflow –measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), around 400 or more. Alternatively, you should note that there are mesh and charcoal filters that are both reusable and washable, and they are highly efficient and safe as well.
Here are two excellent rangehoods that have been named as some of the best available in today’s marketplace:
