The Purpose of Kitchen Range Hoods

The Purpose of Kitchen Range Hoods

An essential part of the kitchen range is the range hood. What is it good for?

No kitchen range or stove is complete without the hood. A range hood is often an afterthought in the eyes of homeowners looking to repair or replace their range or stovetop, but this appliance is indeed highly useful and necessary in the kitchen. If you are looking to learn more about kitchen range hoods, there’s no better place to start than here!

Eliminating Dirt & Hazards

The primary purpose of kitchen range hoods is to suck out steam, fumes, grease, and oil that arises from meals cooking on the stove. Removing this debris is indeed a plus, as it improves air quality in the home. You won’t have to breathe in greasy fumes or have to clean a greasy film from your cabinets and countertops. Some say that using the range hood during cooking can also reduce carbon monoxide in your kitchen.

Eliminating Smells

Aside from removing pollutants from your airways, kitchen range hoods also remove the smell that comes with them. As delicious as your dinner might be, you don’t want to have the smell of food lingering in the house, in a corner with stagnant air, or in the rooms above the kitchen. Eliminating the smells that come with cooking is as simple as turning on the hood.

Maintaining Comfort

Cooking and baking take energy from the range, and that energy turns into heat. As a small way to add warmth to a cold kitchen, this might be fine, but otherwise, it could prove uncomfortable, especially in the summer. A range hood also helps to remove excess heat produced from cooking.

Adding Light

Range hoods also give light over the range or stove, a built-in task lighting, if you will. Task lighting over the stovetop aids your cooking, meal prep, and midnight snacking. It’s this little feature that adds all the more functionality to the appliance.

Adding Value and Style

Range hoods add multi-faceted functionality to a range or stove, but they also add home value and style. The hood is an essential part of a range, so one should have a functional and stylish hood in place if planning to sell a house. There are also many styles available and can become your kitchen’s focal point. If you need range hood installation, maintenance, or repair, Landers Appliance is at your service in Baltimore, Maryland!
