Ductless Range Hoods
Ductless range hoods offer a more versatile ventilation system when it comes to your kitchen design. Because air is recirculated using a recirculatory kit, ductless range hoods can be installed almost anywhere to accommodate cooking spaces. Unlike ducted range hoods, you won't have to worry about ducting to the outdoors or them interfering with other household installations.
Filters suck up grease particles, heat, odors, smoke, filters it, and recirculates it back into the kitchen. Many have filters which are dishwasher-safe so they can easily be popped into the dishwasher for effortless clean-ups. They are available in under cabinet, wall mount, downdraft, and island mount types to correspond with cooktops and ranges. Sizes vary from a modest 30" size up to a larger 48" in width.
All have an internal blower, which is located in the hood itself, contributing to their easy placement and accessibility. Extraction rates range from 190 CFM up to a 760 CFM to whisk away any unwanted smoke from sizzling creations. Power levels can easily be adjusted using the fan speed control, so you get the right amount of blower power needed for all types of cooking occasions, whether it's subtle steam from boiling water or abrupt smoke from deep-fried indulgences.
Ductless range hoods do more than operate as a ventilation system. Select models are equipped with halogen and LED lights, creating a spotlight for your delicious foods. Whether your preparing a succulent dinner or cleaning up messy spills, integrated lights help enhance the kitchen experience ensuring a properly illuminated cooking space.
