Hoods not only add character to your kitchen but functionality.
Once you've decided to select a hood, the question remains which hood is right for you? Before you choose what hood will work in your space, a little research is helpful. For the perfect accompaniment to any Fulgor Milano range top, there are a few questions you can ask to help you avoid any potential "hood" winks! Visit us today to have all of your questions answered.
How Do You Know if Your Kitchen is "Up to Code?"
Where you live can help you choose the type of hood you need. If you still aren't sure what type of hood to purchase, it helps to check local building codes. Some residential dwellings may require your range has a ventilation system in place. Once you've determined the level of necessity behind selecting a range hood, you can move on to defining what kind is best.
Why Do Fulgor Milano Range Tops Need Hoods?
Fulgor Milano range tops that use induction radiate less heat than their gas and electric counterparts. This fact doesn't negate the need for a hood. While induction ranges don't give off toxic fumes (like carbon monoxide) and extra heat, hoods for Fulgor Milano range tops can still bring added benefits to your kitchen by:
- Expelling unsavory scents (like grease) and sticky particles from the kitchen
- Procuring safer environments (by concentrating grease in one area)
- Removal of other toxins such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and carbon dioxide
- Adding stylish, streamlined looks that can complete your kitchen beautifully.
Fulgor Milano range tops that use gas may have specific requirements for hoods. Gas range tops are fed natural gas through pipes. Not all range tops require venting air out of your home and may only recirculate air. If your range has options for smoking foods, a cooktop grill, or other premium options, it may be necessary to install a hood that pushes air outdoors.
Why Does Placement Matter?
Fulgor Milano range tops are very versatile. They can be placed on islands or along walls. If you've decided that a hood will benefit you, size up your kitchen. Hoods may need to meet a height or other code requirement for installation. For smaller homes, large low hanging hoods in the center of the room can be problematic and against code. It may be better to situate your range and hood in a different area for functionality and aesthetic purposes.
