Ventilation Hood Options for Your Kitchen

Kitchen ventilation is more important than many homeowners realize. The hood over your range or cooktop pulls away steam and smoke before they can dissipate throughout the house. That means the hood removes excess moisture, soot, grease, and cooking odors that would otherwise stick around and settle on surfaces. If you don’t want to have to clean more than necessary or deal with lingering smells, it's a good idea to invest in kitchen ventilation that addresses the cause at the source.
