11 Benefits of a Range Hood

11 Benefits of a Range Hood - Proline Range Hoods

Are you looking to upgrade your kitchen? Or maybe you’re building a new home and looking for a modern appliance as a finishing touch? A range hood is not only beautiful but also a functional appliance for your kitchen.

A range hood vents heavy grease from your kitchen and neutralizes strong cooking odors. It helps you have a more comfortable cooking experience. A modern appliance like a hood is a great way to increase the resale value of your home. If you’re selling your home to an avid cook, you can tell them what you love about it.

These aren’t the only ways a range hood can help you. Here are 11 additional benefits of owning and using a range hood.

Improves your indoor air quality and thus your health

A range hood vents grease, smoke, cooking exhaust, and chemicals produced from your cooking outside the home. Without proper ventilation, the smoke and contaminants sit in your kitchen which is not beneficial for your lungs.

Range hoods are built to last about a decade, so it’s a valuable investment to keep you healthy while cooking.

Beautiful, modern upgrade for your kitchen

If you’re looking into a range hood, you probably either have no fan or a microwave hood. A range hood is a definite upgrade over a microwave hood. Not to mention it features a more modern design that will impress your guests.

Most importantly, range hoods are much more powerful than microwave hoods. So, they are able to vent heavy grease and smoke out of your kitchen quicker.

Increases the resale value of your home

To the average home buyer, a range hood looks quite impressive. It makes for a beautiful finishing touch to a kitchen remodel. Also, it’s a small, cost-effective investment.

Great selling point

Not only can a range hood increase the resale value of your home, but it’s also a great selling point. If you have someone asking a lot of questions about your kitchen, talk to them about your new range hood! Avid cooks, in particular, will be thrilled to see a range hood in your kitchen. Use this to your advantage. If it’s new, point that out. Mention that it’s fully installed and operational. If you’ve used the hood, how have you liked it? Be sure to point out all the positives you’ve experienced as you’ve used the hood.

Allows you to cook a wider variety of food

A range hood gives you great flexibility in the kitchen. Most hoods today have variable speeds; this is one of the most underrated features of a kitchen fan. If you need to vent heavy smoke from your kitchen, turn the top speed on. Otherwise, use the lower speeds to save some money on power and increase the life of your vent hood.

The lowest speeds are great if you need to warm up some food or set it on simmer.

Quiets your pesky smoke alarm

One of the most annoying things that can happen while you’re cooking is when you set off your smoke alarm. You may already have a lot going on in the kitchen; then you have to deal with the smoke alarm. It can quickly become overwhelming. But a range hood doesn’t let your kitchen fill up with smoke; it will take all the smoke out of the kitchen in just minutes. You’ll have one less thing to worry about while cooking.

Streamlines your cooking experience

A range hood makes cooking easier. You don’t have to worry about your kitchen filling up with smoke. Also, you don’t have to distract from your cooking to clean your filters or wipe the grease and grime off your cabinets.

Some hoods feature dishwasher-safe baffle filters, which save you time and effort while cooking.

Cuts down the time spent cleaning in the kitchen

Without a vent hood, grease accumulates on the surrounding cabinets, walls, and ceiling. Over time, this can become hard to clean. It may require some strong chemicals and you don’t want to breathe in those fumes.

With a powerful range hood, all the grease that would end up on your cabinets is vented to the outside.

Vents strong cooking smells from the kitchen

We’ve talked a lot about heavy grease leaving your home, but you also won’t have to bear the strong smells of Asian cooking or greasy food. This is especially nice when you have guests over and they won’t be bothered by strong cooking smells.

Regulates the temperature of your kitchen area

If you’re cooking for long periods of time, it can get warm in the kitchen. Or if you like high heat foods like stir fry or fajitas, it won’t take long for your kitchen to get hot. But a professional range hood will keep the kitchen nice and cool. If it’s getting warm, turn the speed setting up once or twice and you’ll feel a difference in just minutes.

Illuminates your cooktop

Great lighting can make or break your experience in the kitchen. It’s great to be able to see what you’re doing, and a range hood will do that for you. Most range hoods are built with bright LED lights or Halogen lights to help you see clearly.

If you don’t have a lot of light in your kitchen, this is an especially good perk of range hoods. Also, for those who love a late evening or midnight snack, the

Vents carbon monoxide outside the home

Earlier, we talked about how a hood improves your indoor air quality. But you may not think that it also vents harmful chemicals like carbon monoxide out of your home. Gas ranges produce carbon monoxide levels. A range hood keeps this in check and improves your kitchen ventilation.

Electric stoves do not produce carbon monoxide – only gas stoves and other fuel-burning appliances. But if you burn food or use the self-cleaning feature on your oven, this may produce carbon monoxide.

That being said, you won’t realistically have zero carbon monoxide in your home at all times. But a hood will effectively reduce the levels of CO and keep your air clean and healthy to breathe.
