Kitchen Ventilation Fans
Kitchen ventilation fans are a critical element of controlling cooking odors, grease and steam and evacuate cooking air quietly and quickly. It is especially important to properly install ventilation fans over gas stoves because natural gas or propane produces a significant amount of water vapor when burned, in addition to noxious combustion products.
Kitchen Ventilation Fans Remove Health Hazards
Kitchen ventilation fans vent cooking air to the outdoors to remove indoor pollution and potential health hazards. Simply recirculating the air may filter out grease, but the cooking moisture, odor and fumes will remain inside your home. Size and airflow requirements will vary depending on the size of the kitchen, the size of the cooktop, the type of fuel and Btu heat output of the stove. For larger systems, it is also important to consider make-up air to replace the air exhausted from your home with the ventilation fan.
HomeAire offers inline kitchen ventilation fans that silently clear the air of moisture and cooking odors, effectively improving the air quality in your kitchen and, as a result, throughout your home.
Kitchen Ventilation Fan Statistic
It has been estimated that cooking dinner for a family of four releases 1.22 pints of water into the air. This amount doubles with a gas stove.
