Do I need to purchase a range hood with or without a motor?
|What type of range hood do I need?|
|Ventilation system: pipe comes straight out||Range hood with motor|
|No ventilation system||Recirculation range hood|
|Central exhaust system||Motorless range hood|
Range hood with motor
Range hood for the exhaust ventilation system
- Suitable for: exhaust ventilation system
- Ventilation: the air is exhausted outwards
- Advantage: powerful range hood that exhausts much more than the other types
- Disadvantage: You need an outwards drain to use this hood.
Please note! This type is absolutely not suitable for a central ventilation system. If you attach the range hood to this, odors will end up in your bathroom, toilet, or at the neighbors.
Recirculation range hood
- Suitable for: when you do not have a ventilation system.
- Ventilation: the air is sucked up, filtered and blown back into the kitchen.
- Advantage: You don't have to have an outwards drain, so you can use this type in any home.
- Disadvantage: In addition to the grease filters, you also need carbon filters, which you have to replace every once in a while.
Range hood without motor
- Suitable for: central ventilation system
- Ventilation: a hatch opens in the ventilation system, through which the air can escape via a tube.
- Advantage: relatively quiet and cheap.
- Disadvantage: its exhaust force depends on the operation of your central ventilaton system and can't be manually adjusted.
Please note! A range hood without a motor simply doesn't work with an exhaust ventilation system.
