Range hoods often go unnoticed unless they are particularly sublime. While they can add a significant style statement to your kitchen, range hoods also serve a few essential functions that will improve your kitchen significantly.
Keep Air Clean
One of the most important features of a range hood is that they pull smoke, scents, and steam up from the stove and outdoors. This means that if you forget your bacon for a little too long or if your cooking something pungent, like fish, you won’t have as much smoke or scent lingering in your kitchen when you’re done. This not only helps keep your nose happy, but it helps keep the air pollution levels in your home down as well.
In the summer you may notice that cooking indoors can become unbearable. If you have a range hood, this problem is significantly reduced. As it pulls smoke and steam out it also removes the excess heat. This means that the temperature in your kitchen can be lowered even when you’re doing serious cooking. Additionally, your range hood can help remove hot air even when you’re not cooking.
Most range hoods are equipped with underhood lighting. A huge benefit if your kitchen doesn’t have the best lighting and you’re trying to get a look at what you’re cooking. This range light is perfect for if you only need a bit of light in your kitchen too, why turn on all of the lights if one will do.
Improve Property Value
While range hoods are still seen as a luxury item, many buyers consider it a make or break item because of the added comfort they give the kitchen. If your home does not have a range hood, installing one can help your resale value.
While it isn’t the most important reason to add a range hood, the style impact it has is a definite bonus to any kitchen. The options for range hoods vary from very simple to very ornate and finding the right choice for your aesthetic and budget is something you should spend time on.
