Breathe Easy: 5 Important Reasons for Kitchen Ventilation
You and your loved ones can breathe easier at home by ensuring your cook range has proper ventilation installed above it.

When homeowners talk about the best appliances in their home, the range hood is hardly ever mentioned. It’s probably the least appreciated appliance in your home. Many homes in the Vernon area probably don’t have proper ventilation in the kitchen.

If you fall into this category, here are five reasons why you should consider installing or upgrading to a proper range hood.


1. Range hoods keep the air cleaner, fresher and safer.

This is easily the most obvious and the most important reason. Besides removing odours from various meals, range hoods also remove potentially toxic pollutants and gases from your kitchen. Smoke, steam, and grease can cause dangerous side effects if inhaled by those around it.


2. Range hoods remove excess heat.

Whether the heat is coming from your oven or the pots and pans simmering away on the stove, a hood range will help reduce the excess heat.

The fan blower that’s built into the range hood will suck up the excess heat. This means you’ll be less likely to find yourself working up a sweat while preparing some of your favourite dishes.


3. You’ll experience better kitchen lighting.

Although you probably spend your time cooking during daylight hours, there are times when the natural light that enters the kitchen is less than ideal. That’s where the lights of the range hood come in handy.

This is also really beneficial for cleaning. While you may not want to see the grease and grime that hides in crevices, turning on the vent light will help during clean up. By keeping your range neat and tidy, you’ll actually improve its lifespan.


4. A nice-looking cook range and hood will increase the value of your home.

Kitchen ventilation comes in all different shapes and sizes, and picking the right one to match your kitchen can add the wow factor you’ve been searching for. If you plan on putting your home on the market, it’s a smart idea to invest in one.


5. You’ll fall in love with it.

A range hood is a terrific kitchen tool. Besides creating a comfortable and clean cooking environment, it’ll help reduce your energy bills. By utilizing kitchen ventilation, you’ll be less likely to crank up the air conditioner, and you can use the hood lights instead of turning on the more costly overhead lights.

There’s another reason you’ll love your range hood too. Once it’s installed, you’ll be far less discouraged to cook because of the potential for unpleasant odours and stuffiness. Plus, with proper ventilation, you’ll be able to enjoy the freedom of being more creative in the kitchen.
