Ventilation is essential when it comes to cooking in an enclosed space, meaning that the average home’s kitchen requires a well-functioning range hood. There are several factors to consider when choosing a range hood, for example, speed, noisiness, and extra features. Also, many of the household range hoods that you would find at your local appliance store fall into 1 of 2 categories: ducted or ductless. Continue reading for a quick introduction to ductless range hoods.
The most notable difference when comparing a ductless hood to a ducted one is that, instead of venting to the outside like a ducted one, ductless hoods filter the air and recirculate it into the room. Ductless hoods need to have their filters cleaned or replaced consistently. However, they tend to be easier to install than ductless ones because they do not need any external ductwork.
