Lingering Kitchen Odors
The aromas of food in the kitchen can be nostalgic. They can trigger childhood memories and often remind us of the holidays. Smell, after all, is the strongest of the human senses. But there’s a point when those wonderful aromas just turn into a distinct smell, aka lingering kitchen odors. Especially if you’re not equipped with a proper range hood.
These odors seemingly creep into every corner of your home like an invisible monster. They unknowingly cling to your furniture, your clothes, and your hair. Worst of all, these lingering odors can follow you right out the front door. Outside the context of cooking in a kitchen, the lingering smell of food is off-putting.
There’s nothing more intrusive in a social setting than smelling like last night’s dinner. And if you’re hosting a dinner party, a greasy, stuffy kitchen isn’t just unsightly but is bad etiquette. So, how does one #CookLikeaGod and keep the post-meal lingering kitchen odors at bay?
Before you start lighting up the scented candles, commit to better habits. Be mindful of kitchen ventilation. If you want to reduce or eliminate kitchen odors, simply start by using your kitchen range hood anytime you’re cooking food.
It takes 21 days to form a habit.
So, for the next 21 days turn on your range hood as soon as you turn on your cooktop. You’re committing to kitchen ventilation. You’ll smell the difference.
Reduce the Heat
Not only will you smell the difference, but you’ll also see and feel the difference in your kitchen’s atmosphere. If you’ve ever cooked a big meal or cooked for an extended period of time, then you know all about the stuffy atmosphere it creates. Combine it with additional people in the kitchen and you have an even bigger issue.
Heat and steam don’t just make us uncomfortable but can also attract mold and can drive up cooling and energy costs. With the help of a kitchen range hood, you can keep the surrounding kitchen air comfortable and enjoyable while you cook. And, as a bonus, your cooling system will rest easy.
Smoke, Steam, and Airborne Toxins
Besides eliminating kitchen odors and reducing the permeating heat from your cooktop, the range hood also rids the air of smoke, steam, and harmful airborne toxins. These toxins permeate from the smoke and steam as the temperature of the kitchen naturally rises from your cooking. Airborne toxins and heat are a dangerous combination.
Did you know that carbon monoxide is one of those airborne toxins? No one should have to be subjected to unhealthy, dirty air in their own home – especially if you have young children. It’s time to use your range hood for what it’s made for – kitchen ventilation. And, since your family’s health is always the priority then it might even be time for an upgrade.
3 Benefits of Upgrading to a Professional Kitchen Range Hood
Upgrading to a professional range hood by THOR Kitchen has 3 key benefits.
- Professional appliance at a practical price: It operates quietly while offering powerful suction that eliminates odors, smoke, and steam. It also features a large, commercial-style 430-grade stainless steel baffle filter maximizing airflow and grease filtration.
- Versatility and Efficiency: This vented range hood can also be converted to a non-vented (ductless) range hood with carbon filters (not included). The 7-inch round duct vent provides better ventilation performance and efficiency. And the LED lights illuminate your cooking while saving energy.
- High-quality design: The stainless-steel finish offers a modern design aesthetic and is built to withstand high heat, grease, oil, and steam.
The health of everyone in your home is too important to not have a source of reliable ventilation. Wouldn’t you agree?
Increase the Value of Your Home
Last, but not least, investing in a professional range hood may increase the value of your home! Any ordinary kitchen is going to come with a refrigerator, a range, and maybe even a dishwasher. The range hood? That’s an added bonus that is not always expected but always appreciated. Even more so when it’s a ducted hood – due to the time and skill needed to install the ductwork and hood properly.
Between eliminating kitchen odors, providing clean air for your family to breathe, and increasing the value of your home, a professional range hood should be the focal point in every kitchen. Opt for this in your kitchen remodel so you can cook anything at home without worrying about what you’re putting into the air. And, when the time comes to sell, you’ll be thankful you took the time to bring this addition into your home.
