Most range hoods are constructed of stainless steel and are designed for use in home and commercial kitchens. Range hoods excel at preventing cooking fumes and exhaust from spreading beyond the stove area. They also do a good job of exchanging air. When deciding on what size range hood to purchase, it is advisable to choose a unit that covers the entire width of the cooking surface. Another decision to make is what style to go with.
A wall range hood requires adequate space between cabinets for proper ventilation. Island hood ranges typically are mounted on the ceiling over a peninsula work area. An under cabinet range hood is a smaller unit that sits just underneath a wall cabinet.
The ventilation for range hoods is routed through the ceiling, cabinet or wall. Range hoods must be installed between 18 and 30 inches above stove burners, which keeps the steam contained inside of the range area. For maximum air flow, it is preferable to use short ducts that can ventilate kitchen smoke outdoors.Learn more about Ovens & Ranges
