When you walk into most kitchens nowadays, what's one of the things you see? A stove and, above that, a range hood (also called vent hood, exhaust hood, extractor hood or extractor fan, ventilation hood, electric kitchen chimney, fume extractor, exhaust plume). Basically, it's a fan that sits above your stove to remove gasses, heat, steam, and other airborne things from your kitchen, specifically when you're cooking. With how much these things do, you'd think they'd be more appreciated. Unfortunately, many people pass them over when they re-do their kitchen or RV. Their filtering properties, though, make them the most important appliance in your kitchen. Taking the gasses and other airborne material out of your kitchen, it keeps you healthy and your kitchen clean and more comfortable. If you're still not convinced of their importance, we have a list of all of their great properties and what they can do for you.
Having a range vent helps improve the quality of air in the kitchen. When you cook, gasses from the stove or oven build up and spread into the air. Carbon monoxide has been linked to many bad things when it comes to our health. To help remove the risk of these things, range vents remove that gas from the air. When we cook, steam, grease, and other things pollute the air, making the area feel stifled and cramped. The hooded vent removes those air pollutants and purifies the air, making your kitchen look and feel cleaner. In addition to feeling bad, though, these air pollutants can have a negative effect on your health and the health of your kitchen. Too much steam over time can lead to water damage and air pollutants can, over time, stain your walls. This also cuts down on bacteria, germs, and mold. With the push of a button, you can keep your air and kitchen cleaner.
A kitchen can get pretty hot if you don't have a way to get rid of that heat. If you don't want to hook up a fan or open a door, a range hood is a great way to get that hot air out. By sucking up the hot air, it keeps the kitchen at a more comfortable temperature. With all of that hot air out, you are more comfortable and able to creatively cook. Plus, you won't have to worry about the hot air hitting you in the face.
Range hoods aren't just for the air, though. Many also have a lighting feature. With the touch of a button, you can have a better look at what you're making, giving you more of a chance to make the best dish possible. With this kind of illumination, your space looks bigger and brighter and more attractive.
If you love to cook, chances are that you are in the kitchen a lot. Kitchen hoods create a more comfortable environment so that you can cook without worrying about steam, heat, or other annoying parts of cooking. Reducing the odors that come with cooking as well as the stuffiness, range hoods are the missing piece that your kitchen may need. It gives you freedom, comfort, and cleanliness to cook. Who wouldn't want that?
This is a sneaky one. Because of all of these things, range hoods are now a typical addition in most kitchens. This means, though, that without a range hood, your property (or re-sell) value could go down. With a good kitchen hood in your RV kitchen, you could keep the value of the vehicle high.
Protecting your health as well as the health, comfort, and cleanliness of the kitchen, these range hoods are definitely not something to be overlooked. Not convinced yet? Well, these stove hoods are durable, efficient, and attractive, creating a pleasant aesthetic in your kitchen and providing use for years to come. Built with RV life in mind, they are ready for the long haul. With these appliances, you can keep your RV looking, feeling, and even smelling great.
