We all love the aroma of good food while cooking but no one wants a smoke filled kitchen after frying chips for Poutine. This is where proper ventilation is necessary. Quite often while renovating houses people tend to pay less attention towards good kitchen ventilation for their cooking space. Professional kitchen renovators always have an appropriate ventilation system for kitchens in their renovation design plan. Kitchens have to be well ventilated to keep all the heat, and odor away. There are many kitchen appliances such as range hoods, chimneys and kitchen exhausts which help in keeping kitchen away from all kinds of pollutants.
Canadian cooking involves a lot of meat smearing, sauce making, and frying. These produce a lot of odor, smoke, and grease which splatter everywhere. This can only be taken care of by a proper kitchen vent set-up. When people opt for a kitchen fan which has no outlet, the smoke just gets recirculated in the kitchen and may stain the walls. An ideal vent set-up should have proper outflows for the smoke.
Range hoods and chimneys are a necessity for a well-vented kitchen. They are designed to collect airborne grease, smoke, and odor. It is ideal to have range hoods installed above your cooktops to have a smoke-free kitchen. Kitchen hoods are of different types, such as ducted hoods, ductless hoods, wall-mounted range hoods, island or ceiling mounted range hoods, under cabinet range hoods etc. You can consult with our home renovators to come up with an ideal range hood.
There are different ventilation set-ups available. Different stovetops require different types of range hoods. An updraft system contains a range hood which hangs above the stove top. These are known to be cost-effective as naturally, heat rises. There is another ventilation set-up known as the downdraft system. It pulls the air downward from the cooktop through built-in vents. These systems are ideal for island set-ups and high-rise ceilings.
