If you don’t have a range hood in your kitchen, you may be breathing toxins while you cook. Fortunately, a range hood will help prevent this.

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at the benefits stainless steel wall mount range hoods offer.

Let’s get started.

Stainless Steel Wall Mount Range Hoods

Your family gathers in the kitchen every Sunday afternoon. You talk about the days that have already ended and what the upcoming week has in store. You enjoy each other’s company. That is until you start cooking.

At first, the aromas fill the kitchen. The spices you have used smell so wonderful you can almost hear stomachs growling. But then things start to get warm. Then, a little humid. Before you know it, people are complaining of the smells and start questioning whether it is steam or smoke that is filling the air.

A pleasant Sunday afternoon has just been ruined by the stench of food and the emissions that result from the cooking process.

The solution? You need a range hood.

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at the benefits offered by stainless steel wall mount range hoods.

What is Floating in Your Kitchen?

Did you know that the smells and steam that fill your kitchen when you cook may actually contain more than just, well, moist air and aromas? While the exact particles and gasses released will depend greatly on the type of food you are cooking, what you are using to cook it, and how you are actually cooking. For example, high heat cooking, such as broiling, frying, and deep-frying can release more negative particles into your air.

So, what could you be breathing in your kitchen while you cook? According to Harvard’s School of Public Health’s research on cooking emissions, you may just find the following:

  • Ultra-fine food particles (also known as UFPs)
  • Carbon monoxide (HCHO)
  • Formaldehyde (CO)
  • Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
  • Acrolein
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)

Again, keep in mind that this is just a broad statement of what you could be breathing in your kitchen. It will vary depending on many different circumstances.

What is a Range Hood?

A range hood is an appliance that is mounted to the wall above your range. It has a fan and filter that work together to vent your kitchen. Heat, steam, smoke, smells, and the variety of things listed above can all be cycled out of the air. In return, you get clean, fresh, filtered air.

All of this happens with the click of a button.

There are several different types of range hoods, including the under cabinet range hoods and wall mount range hoods. Each has its own set of characteristics, pros, and cons. But when it comes to having a range hood that both looks nice and provides you with a great amount of relief, you will find it in a wall mount range hood.

Now, about that contaminated air go – where does it?

Ducted vs. Ductless Range Hoods

When your range hood takes in the particles, steam, and so forth from your kitchen, it has to go somewhere, right? The more specific answer to this question will depend on whether you have a ducted or a ductless range hood.

A ducted range hood vents outside. It sucks up the air in your house that needs to be cleaned and it vents it out – rather than cleaning and recirculating. This is a preferred method for a range hood, but not the most ideal as it requires running ductwork throughout your home, which can be a large project.

A ductless range hood is just like it sounds – ductless. Instead of being vented outside through ductwork, this type has a fan with a filter. It sucks up the dirty air, cleans it, and then returns it back to the kitchen
