After preparing delicious meals for family, many women are obsessed by
unpleasant odors caused by cooking. The smell is not only present in the
kitchen, but also spread to other spaces if cannot be handled soon. The most
common solution for this problem is a hood.
|A cooker hood is a divide to
collect and vent smoke or odors from the air in the kitchen and can be a focal
point in living space. However, some customers still do not believe that hood
can bring the expected results. The problem is they do not know how to choose
the suitable hood to get the best efficiency from the device.
|In the market now, there are so
many types of hood with different features, specifications… It’s make the
customers confuse when choosing a hood for their home. Customers can choose a suitable
hood based on its extraction rate by a simple calculus: Extraction rate = Kitchen
volume x Coefficient. The coefficient is how many times you want the air in the
kitchen changes in 1 hour. If you do not cook frequently and only prepare
simple dishes, the coefficient can be 5. If you cook more often with more
flavor dishes, the coefficient must be more than 10. For example, you have a
2.5 meters width, 3.5 meters long and 3 meters height kitchen and cook every
day, you will need a hood with minimum (2.5 x 3.5 x 3) x 10 = 262.5 m
|Consumers also can choose kitchen
hood by mounting instruction based on their home structure. There are 2 options
of exhaust: venting (ducting) and recirculating. The recirculating exhaust is
suitable for apartment or townhouse. Advantage of this exhaust system is very
easy to mount. The system uses activated charcoal to filter the air so that the
air intake ratio will reduce about 20-30% and the noise will increase slightly.
Vented mounting method is used for houses that have space for air to go outside
with the mounting is more complex. However, with this mounting, air intake ratio
will be higher. Modern hood including two exhaust systems allow consumers to
choose vented and recirculating mounting depends on their demands.
