Vent hoods come with many features, most of which are designed to assist with ventilation and lighting. The cubic feet per minute (CFM) rating of the hood's blower is a measure of the velocity at which air flows out of the kitchen. The higher the CFM rating, the faster air is ventilated; however, with fans running at higher speeds, there is a noise factor to consider. Many individuals want to find a blower that is functional but also quiet.
Other features to consider include:
There are many factors that ultimately determine the project cost. Homeowners that are replacing an existing vent hood with a similar unit should find relatively inexpensive prices. Adding a new vent hood or upgrading the type of unit could involve electrical and duct work in addition to the basic installation.
Installing a new vent hood isn't a simple task and could require extensive electrical and HVAC skills. Working with a contractor ensures that the installation is in line with the manufacturer's recommendations and is secure and up to code.
