You’ve probably heard the whirring of a hood vent fan as you’re cooking a meal in your kitchen. Or maybe you remember the sound from your childhood when your parents would prepare dinner. Without a hood vent fan, mom’s attempt at the newest culinary delights may have gotten a little smokier in the preparation phase. That said, hood vent fans are those nifty motorized fans that are attached above your oven and stove. They whisk away bad odors, provide better circulation to the kitchen while you’re making meals, and banish whisps of smoke for a clearer, cleaner breathing experience while you chef it up. This why hood vent fan installation is important to your Sultan home, and why you could call One Call Home Repair for all of your hood vent needs.
You probably have a lot of questions about your kitchen’s hood vent, especially because that’s a big part of the kitchen that not many people talk about. It’s often forgotten until something goes amiss. On average, a hood vent should be 30 inches above your cooktop, which is something we at One Call Home Repair are sticklers about. We are all about safety and following secure protocols that keep you and your loved ones as secure in your home experiences as possible. So, while a hood vent fan may not seem like a big deal, it actually helps tremendously in your everyday home.
Are Hood Vents Attached to Outdoor Leads?
Most hood vent fans are vented outdoors through a lead of pipes to ensure better ventilation. Smoke is sucked outside, freeing your home from fire hazard if you, for example, accidentally leave your eggs to boil for a little too long.
