Lots of homeowners have a range hood and don’t know how to properly maintain it.

Using a range hood over the stove or cooktop in your kitchen is a great way to remove smoke, heat and cooking odors.

When using a range hood, be sure to turn it on before you begin cooking, and leave the fan running for 15 minutes after you’re through.

Clean the grease filters once a month, and replace the charcoal filter on unvented range hoods every three to four months.

Further Information

The ducted range hood over your stove is there to remove smoke, vapors, heat, and cooking odors; but it can only do that job properly if you remember to use it.

Turn the fan on a few minutes before you begin cooking, and leave it running for 15 minutes after you finish.

Even if only boiling water, a ducted hood will remove unwanted heat and humidity from your home.

To ensure peak efficiency, clean the grease filters about once a month. For non-ducted range hoods, replace the charcoal filter every three to four months.
