Thermador designs an extensive range of exhaust fans and ventilation solutions, as of 2015, with the larger options designed to fit professional and commercial kitchens. The Thermador range includes wall hoods, custom insert hoods and downdraft ventilation.
Choosing the right ventilation solution for either a home or commercial kitchen is essential. If the exhaust fan is not large or powerful enough, it will not work efficiently and steam, smoke and grease will build up in the kitchen. If it is too powerful, it may lead to the exhaust fumes being fanned back into the kitchen, contaminating the air and food.
